How can a small news team thin on resources produce awesome graphics on the regular? Where do design and data best practices break down for newsrooms with little manpower? How do you decide what story format works best under shifting deadlines? This session will take a close look at how a handful of small and medium newsrooms are building visually striking stories (maps, charts, immersive interactives) on a shoestring, going behind the scenes of some recent examples. Join this session and pick up tips, tools, and best practices to take back to your newsroom.
This session will be most helpful if:
You work in a small newsroom that wants to do more visual storytelling
You work in a newsroom without a graphics team and want to do more visual storytelling
You want to incorporate more visual/interactive elements into your own reporting
You produce graphics (static or interactive) for your newsroom and are looking for ways to improve how you work with the rest of the newsroom
