Multimedia is defined as the use of a variety of artistic or communicative media.
Besides my public relations major, I have also added a multimedia minor to my curriculum. For our class final project I was required to work as a group in order to cover a certain topic. My group choose the subject of Saturday Market.
The use of different forms of multimedia can be effectively used to cover the appeal of the desired topic. I found that out when our project slowly came together. Each of our individuals pieces covered an aspect of the Saturday Market, that embraced the market’s mission. I and my group members could all see how these written and digital works could be implemented in an online campaign about Saturday Market.
