“Digital media is a form of electronic media where data are stored in digital form. It can refer to the technical aspect of storage and transmission of information or to the “end product”, such as digital video, augmented reality, digital signage, digital audio, or digital art . “The creative convergence of digital arts, science, technology and business for human expression, communication, social interaction and education”. There is a rich history of non-binary digital media, computers, and their rise to prominence over the last couple decades.”
“Electronic media that work on digital codes.”
Having looked at some definitions of digital media my first thought way social media. I already have created some social media to promote my own design work but I am guilty of not updating it frequently enough. I have witnessed myself how powerful social media can be, things can go viral very quickly with the power of social media making this a perfect base to grab peoples initial attention.This sometimes can help lead people to other digital media such as websites, social media is brilliant for hailing an audience as this is included in a lot of peoples everyday life but the key is to promote something that will grab there attention more than anything else they scroll past.
Here are some social medias I have found, Looking at Instagram,twitter and Facebook I find it really interesting how businesses, designers, artists and musicians use these to promote there work, I have a personal account for all of these social medias where I just share photos and messages with my friends, I feel its a brilliant way to gain a relationship and stay current with your audience.
This shows the same sort of layout as there websites do, possibly they chose the square layout to insure they had consistency when it came to the imagery they shared.I think Instagram is a great way to share work especially for creatives as the layouts simple so it shows your work in a lovely layout. Also with Instagram you can put hashtags on your imagery meaning people who have interest in the subjects can search and see your work.
Twitter is the same when it comes to hashtags so I feel this is another good idea to start a trend of and hail people towards your work, Its good to include links to your website and also other social media, you get the option to create a bio on both of these so you can input information and links on here.
