Responsive Storytelling with Seamless Scrolling

Interactive journalism weaving in multimedia, text and artifacts

For Black Gold Boom's "Oil to Die For" interactive site, we wanted to design an experience that continuously delved into the costly dangers in of America's oil fields.  Todd Melby - the journalist-  approached the story through intimate narratives juxtaposed by industry wide data and interviews. Leaning on traditional chapter segments, we were able to guide audiences through repeated design elements while incorporating video backdrops, multimedia and an interactive timeline. The site is responsive in order to accomodate for the large percentage of mobile viewings from the last Black Gold Boom release. 
 
Designing flow between chapters, data and full screen video. 
Working agilely with Todd's script, we planned out interactions via storyboards.
Using Black Gold Boom's branding, I translated our concepts into visual designs to match the series.
