Please visit the final projects from our Spring 2017 Style & Design classes.
They are constructed in HTML5/CSS3 and will work on either your computer, tablet or smartphone. These projects are the culmination of a semester of work by some wonderful students.
Their projects include the creation of a magazine, brochure or interactive PDF, infographic, logo, animated GIF, tutorial / how-to video and more.
Students also include projects from their previous class experiences including a survey research project, PR writing media release and press kit, case study, campaign plan, whiteboard presentations and more.
Each project is unique and serves as a representation of the student’s skills well beyond what you will find in a traditional resume.
Software used includes Adobe Creative Cloud’s Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver (Text Wrangler, Notepad++), screen capture software (SnagIt, Quicktime), Canva, WordPress, Ning and other desktop and SaaS software.
The purpose of this semester-long exercise has two main elements: process and product. They both require the following practices:
Personal brand marketing
Here are some of their front page screen shots. Hire them … now!
Here they are! Our Fall 2014 Auburn University PR studenet digital resumes and portfolios, also referred to as eportfolios. These projects are the culmination of a semester long process that pulls together each student’s overall school and internship work experiences.
They are HTML 5 responsive websites. Each site also has a blog which features each student’s writing assignments for the semester.
Share their work with your colleagues and hire them!
Auburn PR Digital ePortfolios and Resumes – Fall 2014
This semester we did something new. In the recent past, we created both a static HTML and mobile version of the digital resumes and portfolios. With the onset of HTML5 and responsive HTML, I decided to let the students purchase a responsive HTML template to use for their final projects. We still learn HTML, but now they learn how to create a static site (or dynamic, as in a blog) that will work on any screen. These resumes should perform well on your smartphone, tablet and computer screens. Let me know what you think.
These students are wonderful. Most have graduated. I suggest that you will be well served if you pursue them for your agency or organization. They’re sharp! They’re fun! You’ll be lucky to have them, too!
Here they are, in no particular order. Well, actually they are in the order they filled out the online form to share their URLs. By the way, we also did a printed portfolio project from the content represented on their websites. I’ve suggested that for years, but this was the first year it was mandatory for this class.
FYI: This semester’s group marks over a decade of digital resume creation by Auburn University PR students. I’m grateful to all of them for humoring me and working so hard on these projects. War Eagle!
Fall 2007 saw a new batch of PR student projects. The following came from the good folks in the PRCM 4020 Style & Design class.
This is the kind of information I’ll share here in PR Prospects. We’ll highlight student campaign projects, media rooms and kits … and more.
As you’ll learn, if you follow this site, I love my students and I’m very proud of them. This group put in a lot of work on these projects. Please, give them a look and perhaps offer them a job or internship.
This summer’s digital resumes and portfolios are complete. The project wound up being a bit different than usual, due to the short five week mini-mester term. But, the projects have some new aspects which, I believe, make them more appealing.
I appreciate the work of these fourteen students. Hire them and/or select them for internships.
Each project contains two major sections. First, there is the resume, an HTML version of the usual Word document. Second, you’ll find the digital portfolio. It contains samples from the work product of these students over their college career.
One new addition to the project is video. Students created video interviews with students, faculty and staff around Auburn. All of those interviews were posted at the Loveliest Village Journal, too.

I’m slowly adding in all the older class projects here. Seeing all of these makes me wish I had required the posting of the digital resume/portfolio projects years ago. They actually help students in their pursuit of internships and jobs.
