Role: Art director; Infographic artist: Wendy Wahman
BACKSTORY This story was graphically rich. I worked with a freelance infographic artist as we reworked archival graphics from various sources into singular images. The end result was concise and updated graphics for the story but also valuable information repackaged for our original sources. The Guardian covered “America’s First Climate Refugees” a year earlier with an in-depth multimedia package on Newtok, Alaska. By incorporating this asset, it added a rich background on the topic for our audience that we could not have otherwise been able to give.
