Lynker supports the Directorate for Communications by working closely with the PIRO Communications and External Affairs Officer and communications team to design, produce, and coordinate media and messaging across multiple channels, including but not limited to:
- graphic design/visualization
- web/social media content development and distribution (fpir.gov, Facebook, Twitter)
- scientific technical writing and editing
- outreach and education efforts
Our team has been instrumental in updating and enhancing the PIRO Style Guide, driving the PIRO and PIFSC website redesign, and identifying opportunities for making the site more interactive through the use of streaming live and recorded audio/visual (e.g., Okeanos feeds), chat, maps, and other methods. Our team’s outstanding work was recognized both internally at NOAA as well as externally: we recently won 2018 Acquia Engage Award for our contribution to the website and content migration and enhancement effort.
We also serve as the Directorate’s primary technical writer and videographer. Our personnel’s articles and documentary shorts are regular feature stories in the NMFS Weekly Newsletter and NMFS website (fisheries.noaa.gov).
