Examples of interactive journalism – Week 15

To see all posts in the “Examples” series, view the category “Examples.”

This is the next-to-last post in this series.

This week’s example, Reframing Mexico (2011), was produced by students — a group from the j-school at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and a group from Tec de Monterrey University, Mexico. It’s a big package of many different stories, including information graphics, videos, and more. The visual design is rather old-school — there are even some Flash interactives inside — but the sliding features are all jQuery.

You should spend some time with this and see what you think about it. Make some notes about what you like, and what you don’t, and why. Sometimes a collection like this can seem too overwhelming to the site visitor. If that’s how you feel, what would you do to improve the experience?
