A complex story made digestible

the feature focused on clear storytelling - short sections and simple charts to describe the landscape of Baltimore. This presentation made the data approachable for the intended audience.

Simple, straight forward charts

When working with data it can be exciting to build complex presentations to communicate ideas. In this case we were able to achieve the objective by harnessing the power of simple and effective dataviz. Most of the graphics were static and each section had a point and that point was supported by the text and charts.
