The New Media Institute and the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication tasked the GoGrady team to find a way to connect alumni and students using technology. GoGrady set out to accomplish this goal, as well as raise the profile of the college by showcasing some of the best the j-school has to offer. The simplistic, circular interface reinforces the idea that people from Grady College can truly become a Grady Family and that the college continues to move forward. GoGrady puts the Grady College in a unique position, creating the first responsive web application for a journalism school in the country. Any device that connect to the internet can GoGrady.
The application features content that not only highlights students and alumni, but showcases Peabody Award winners, takes users on a journey through the history of Grady College and connects users to Grady College regardless of where they are. GoGrady will serve as a clean and inviting interface that bridges Grady alumni and students, bringing them closer together. By giving students and alumni the opportunity to connect digitally, it opens the door for innovation and inspiration among people who may not have otherwise connected.
