We are a small team of eight people who produce a range of data-driven stories. About half of our output are original ideas that we have conceived and executed. The other half are collaborations with other teams but in all those cases all of the data-crunching, visualisation and storyboarding is done by our team.
The submitted portfolio represents a range of stories and story styles designed for mobile audiences and intended to maximise engagement and shareability. The range from the lighter subject matter (pocket money) to more serious topics (the gulags of Xinjiang).
Some are data visualisations. Others use satellite imaging. Many include reader input.
As we are a publically-funded news organisation, we are not required to consider the monetisation aspect. But we do have to consider engagement and reach. So impact is very important for our team especially as we are only funded year-to-year.
