One Block

nymag.com/oneblock

A massive interactive reporting and storytelling project from New York Magazine, telling the 100-year story of a single block in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.

My role spanned art direction, visual design, UX design, and front-end development in addition to early wireframing and conceptual ideation.

Starting early in the reporting process, I worked with a senior editor to conceptualize how the depth and nuance of such a sprawling, diverse story could be presented online.

This was the first project of its kind for New York, where the digital and interactive presentation was a key factor in telling the complete story.

I designed and coded over 25 unique footnotes for the sidebar area to provide historical and contextual information to the main story, including interactive charts.

In keeping with modern web standards and our audience traffic data, the site was designed to be fully responsive across all viewports and devices.
