Most of my work as a production assistant at NPR Music has involved working with member stations on Slingshot, a collaborative effort to showcase emerging artists. I schedule and oversee publication of new content, help organize and produce collaborations with member stations, and create editorial guidelines for member stations to use when producing Slingshot content. Occasionally, I also write about new songs and music videos for the series.
I've also helped produce Weekend Edition pieces about Slingshot artists, like this one on Big Thief's song, "Shark Smile," and this one on Lo Moon's song, "Loveless."
In preparation for the announcement of the 2018 Slingshot artists, I worked with producers, member station music directors and NPR's visuals team to create a project plan for the upcoming year, produce a visually-appealing announcement page, write editorial guidelines and create a media kit for stations.
I created the following images and GIFs for the promotion of Slingshot 2018.
