CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS
Our Future, Together
We likened the US economy to an oak tree in our motion graphics video; robust yet always changing. To explore the data, we created companion interactives: pyramid charts (below), a tool used to help predict youth booms and busts with attendant consequences; a tree map, for packing lots of data in a small space; a line graph, to show trends; and a streamgraph, to explore waves of immigrants over time in the context of laws that encouraged or discouraged their arrival in the US.
IMAGES OF INTERACTIVES
We think through pictures, just like a writer thinks through words. We created a series of increasingly detailed storyboards to give our client an idea of how we would transform the key messages from the Our Future, Together report into a compelling and easily understandable video.
