Digitalization changed the nature of broadcasting dramatically. Today, people have more entertainment options than in the past. As a result, we need to capture our audience with our original contents on social networks. My challenge is to find ways to reach our target audience by using marketing strategies and a Design Thinking approach. I intend to analyze and personalize our prospective audience – digital native Millennials & Generation Z – then find an effective way to design appealing interactive contents. As a sound designer, I’m also interested in how streaming changed the music industry and what comes next in Silicon Valley.
