Barriers: A Multimedia Journalism Project

A preview of the Barriers website which can be viewed here.

Barriers is a semester-long multimedia journalism project from the Hussman School of Media and Journalism at UNC Chapel Hill. A team of reporters, photographers, videographers, designers, and developers travelled to Belize to report on the effects of climate change on the coral reefs. I served as one of two web developers responsible for the creation of the website. We built the website using Hugo framework in collaboration with a team of UX designers and motion graphic designers.

The goal of this project was to use multiple different APIs to tell a visual story and mimic the style of a publication we respect. For my project, I focused on the recent protests in Chile. I chose to mimic the style of The New York Times. I used three different APIs: The New York Times, Google Maps, and Twitter.

Data Visualization

Skills used:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • Highcharts
  • c3

This was a project for my Intermediate Interactive Media class in the UNC School of Media and Journalism. The challenge was to create a story centered around data visualization that replicated the style of a famous publication. The purpose of this assignment was to apply our skills with HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create a visual story. I chose to use a dataset about opioid overdoses in Austin, Texas, and replicate the style of The Texas Tribune. The site can be found here.
