Arola, Kristin L.; Sheppard, Jennifer; Ball, Cheryl E. (2014). Writer/designer: A guide to making multimodal projects. Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s.

abstract (from the Bedford W/D website)

Creating multimodal projects can seem daunting, but Writer/Designer streamlines the multimodal composing process and makes it manageable for students. Designed to work in any college course, this brief, accessible book is here to help students whether they are creating a poster, a webtext, an animated video, or any other kind of text. Write/Design assignments guide students through the process of researching the right genre for their project, finding the tools to work with different media, drafting with mockups and storyboards, and presenting their final projects to the world. Online examples, tutorials, and activities in e-Pages take advantage of what the Web can do, showcasing real multimodal compositions from both students and professionals.
