How do we create compelling online news experiences? First, we traverse the multimedia landscape to gather the pieces of our narrative: text, visuals and data. Next, we design that story as one seamless experience in a simple interface. Oh, and we mustn’t forget to make it flexible enough to allow last-minute changes and updates. In this presentation, we’ll examine case studies from The New York Times and explore some outside-the-box thinking.


Andrew DeVigal is multimedia editor for The New York Times as well as the co-founder of DeVigal Design, a print and interactive communications agency. In the news industry since 1993, he runs Interactive Narratives, a website sponsored by the Online News Association and dedicated to capturing the best in online visual storytelling. Andrew writes:

"It’s an exciting moment in the industry as new technologies enrich the possibilities of journalism, giving us, storytellers, the ability to better organize and present complex information as well as enhance the experience of telling interactive stories through the fusion of text, photo, video, audio and infographics."
