I’m a journalist who thinks like a designer and a designer who thinks like a journalist.
I spent years working as a producer, writer, and editor at CNN and later as a producer and reporter at WBUR in Boston.
I produced video packages that went out to more than 1000 CNN affiliates like these:
I’m now a producer with WBUR’s Morning Edition where I write, produce, and edit. Check out my WBUR page here for stories - or listen to a segment I did with Radio Boston Host Meghna Chakrabarti.
While working full-time at CNN, I also studied Human Computer Interaction at Georgia Tech.
In my master’s program, I learned that design is a lot like journalism. You research, ask questions, and tell stories.
One of my favorite projects was designing and prototyping a storytelling app for Atlanta’s historic Auburn Avenue. Read about my process here.
Another cool project is worked on is the second-screen Game of Thrones Companion app. I led user testing for this one - and co-wrote a TVX paper on it.
I’m always looking for ways to merge storytelling, design, and user-experience. I’d love to chat if you have any ideas for stories or projects! Email me at ameryasmin (at) gmail (dot) com
