Jess Kuronen and I wanted to see how Trump’s platform has changed from last year. Here, we presenting material itself, using typography to provide abstraction, rather than exiting the form entirely (with, say, a bar chart).
The Price of Climate is a series of articles that looks at the financial effects of climate change. It’s a sort of different take than we’re used to seeing. There’s no aerial shots of melting ice caps. The color scheme isn’t ocean blue.
Our design direction comes from ripping off The Weather Channel, which involved this sexy palette of nauseated highlighter colors:
Anyway, the above images are a bunch of components that spanned this multi-part series:
My favorite collaborator Jess Kuronen and I got to work with the talented Hanna Sender to talk about how meal kit companies are a logistical nightmare. In this text-based game, readers can make choices that ultimately end up in further complications. Turns out food is really hard to ship!

This project was a fun to code. It’s single page app so it had a router to direct users to different matches.

It’s been a decade since the 2008 Financial Crisis, but risk hasn’t disappeared — it has simply migrated elsewhere. I loved this collaboration with the amazing Jessica Kuronen and Gabriel Gianordoli to tell this expansive story in bite-sized factoids.
Morningstar has everyone convinced they can predict the future, but their ratings are about reliable as a magic 8 ball. With Jessica Kuronen, we gave them a gold star — or two — for their best efforts. Also we collaborated with Joel Eastwood to make a bunch of data visualization to prove the point.
