The Guelph New Media Alliance is intended as a place for developers to connect, and for potential clients to find a new media developer in the Guelph area.
In the GNMA Business directory, we hope to build a database of anyone in the Guelph area who works in new media, or who has skills that may be useful when working on a new media project. You can view the directory here, or create a new account, and enter you own company.
Also, we are planning occasional get-togethers, if you are interested in becoming involved or meeting other developers, come on out.
What do we mean by “New Media”?
New media covers a wide range media that is enhanced by digital technology. Examples would be websites, CD/DVDs, mobile phone content, and podcasts. A successful new media project requires many skills, including programming, interface design, graphic design, sound and video creation, illustration, and writing.
How do developer’s benefit?
As a new media developer, you live or die by what services you can offer your clients. Knowing what potential collaboraters there are in your area, and what skills they have, can enable you to better serve your client’s needs. Most of us are working on contracts from all over the globe. We seldom compete against one another, but by being connected, we may often have a chance to strengthen one another. By building a new media community in the Guelph area, we can find ways to help each other
