Inspired by the New York Times’ Snow Fall story, KXAN was experimenting with expanded, multimedia-rich online investigative storytelling. Because of my extensive knowledge of WordPress and experience in designing for the web, I was brought in on the project to provide assistance and help establish best practices for future stories.
Once the copy was written, the art director and I worked with the digital team, sitting in on scrum meetings and discussing everything from coding, layout, and typography, to media placement and optimization. I also contributed graphic design elements to the completed story.
This story was included in KXAN’s Regional Edward R. Murrow Award-winning entry for overall website excellence in 2016.
