ReRouted has taken a well deserved reading break. However, reading break for myself, is a more study intensive time than a normal given week. After weeks of pumping out content and hosting interviews, this week will be slightly slower in terms of processing. ReRouted has stopped to regroup and plan out our next steps in terms of guests and business processes. As mentioned previously, ReRouted needs to design a logo
What is now a consistent mention of the past, ReRouted started off as a personal blog for me to post and share my story with an ephemeral audience. This week, guest speaker and Senior Content Strategist, Lauren Cheal from Echo Stories, presented on the aspect of having a corporate backstory and motif for why one would seek out to become a ‘professional’ brand and organization.

Of course, ReRouted
ReRouted is about to take on a big change in terms of content quality… Possibly? This week, our Pub 201 class was fortunate to receive a field trip to the Maker Commons at SFU’s Burnaby campus. The field trip entailed a thorough guided tour and demonstration in all the available resources that to my surprise, and I’d argue many students at SFU would agree, didn’t know we had available to
This week, I am reviewing Tiffany Chang’s blog, Four Purple Walls, which can be found here. For this review, I will compartmentalize my observations and ideas into subtopics as follows; design, content, and function, all in respect to the professional self and branding. Design: Four Purple Walls is aesthetically pleasing with the theme reflecting the title of the site. The images Tiffany utilizes are approachable, soft, inviting and portray an
Determining the overall concept of the direction of this blog was challenging because I wanted to develop something that reflects my “story” from ReRouted and Pub 101, but is different in terms of the goals and content required for Pub 201. My intent for this blog is to create a brand that others can identify with and use to find comfort in the ever changing process of finding your true
