Redbrick is embracing the digital age. In 2011 it won the Guardian Student Media Award for 'Website of the Year', and has continuously improved its website since then, boasting new features, including mobile and tablet friendly pages, and improved social media integration, to name a few. But Redbrick isn't stopping there.
The role of Digital Developer is brand new in 2013, and developers will take control of adding new features to the website, optimising it, and fixing issues and bugs. Perhaps even more exciting, Redbrick will be hosting developer 'hack afternoons' for the developer team, encouraging new ideas and projects that the team wouldn't usually be able to do within the standard Redbrick schedule.
Interested? Email email@example.com with your name and level of experience
A picture is said to be worth a thousand words and pictures are at the heart of Redbrick, both online and in print. Whether it's taking photographs of University sports matches, a fashion shoot or of a protest on campus, photographers always get to the centre of the action for all Redbrick's sections.
We are hoping this year to expand the use of photography in Redbrick by using online montages and sending photographers out on even more and varied assignments. All you need is a camera and loads of creative flair.
