About the author

Andrea Schaub

After training as a graphic and web designer and obtaining a degree in information and communication sciences at the University of Applied Sciences Cologne, Andrea Schaub became an online editor at the CrossMedia section of the Communications department at DLR Cologne in March 2005.

As a multimedia editor, creating content such as animations, web video and journalistic contributions such as reports, portraits and podcasts excite her. In her role as a portal manager and online editor, she is, together with other editors, responsible for editing and producing multimedia content for the DLR web portal as well as managing regular projects for the redesign and development of the DLR web portal and the rollout of new designs to approximately 80 sites of DLR institutions, facilities and projects. In addition, she oversees the tablet editions of the crossmedia DLR magazine, which next to the DLR web portal, is one of the most important products in the DLR communications portfolio.

The CrossMedia sections aims at contemporary public relations, and thus targets groups via directional and bi-directional communication over multiple content, design and editorial linked channels.
