SND Multimedia Award: Head Count – Tracking Obama’s Appointments

Friday, June 5th, 2009

My group interactive Head Count – Tracking Obama’s Appointments from March 2009 received an award from the SND: The Best of Multimedia Design┬áCompetition Q1 2009 in the 2a “news” category. This makes it eligible for the annual contest. Not bad for a project that’s gotten over 500,000 page views in 3 months!

Judges Comments:
An incredible set of data coupled with innovative presentation, tracking mechanisms and layers of detailed biographic and editorial information.Comprehensive, sophisticated example of a database-driven graphic. So much information, so many ways to explore it. The cross-linking and interconnectedness of the information is impressive. All in all, an impressive database graphic.
