This project highlighted the life of activist César Chavez, published when film was released earlier in spring 2014. I contributed to the layout and design of the project. For the timeline of his life, I used TimelineJS. I downloaded the source files to change some styles and to add a background image to the timeline.
La Huella Digital is the recipient of an Edward R. Murrow Award for the Network Radio and Television Market.
This project, “Estado Critico”/”Critical State,” was about one Latino youth going across the country to understand Obamacare/Affordable Care Act. A long-form story, videos, and interactive graphics is included in this project to educate about to illustrate how Obamacare will impact the lives of Latinos in the United States.
My master’s project focused on the chronology of the undocumented student movement. I was interested designing the web layout of this story, especially with longform storytelling being revitalized online. I took HTML/CSS classes at Columbia, built the page myself. It’s responsive, and it reflects the ideas about journalism online: transparency, sourcing links, and using the interactivity of online to help guide the reader through the story.
