Life After The Beep; In Memoriam of the Voicemail

May 2017

My phone had accrued years of unchecked voicemails from family and friends of the past. Some were short call-me-backs; others were simply silly. I began to wonder what stories people may be carrying in their own voicemail boxes. This is a half-semester long collaborative project that features some personal stories by fellow student Cienna Fernandez and other strangers surrounding their voicemails.

As project manager, I led a small team to produce this feature story. I also set up a Google Voice phone number to invite strangers and friends to call in and leave their own stories as voice messages.
