Suite Of Interactive Visualisations

The Times was the first UK newspaper to produce content for the iPad. They recognised the potential for innovation and asked us to collaborate on developing their mobile digital strategy and product delivery.

Pushing the boundaries of emerging technologies like HTML5 and CSS3 was key to producing rich visual stories with an authentic and distinctive iPad experience.

Using a common canvas size and reusable code base and working closely with editorial teams data visualisations were created to be easily transferable between web and iPad platforms. Establishing a consistent framework enabled quick conceptualisation and delivery of products within tight editorial deadlines.

Projects included:

  • Visualising data from the Department of Health highlighting England’s North/South health divide.
  • Real-time World Cup second screen companion, with live stats for each group, match, team and player.
  • Working with Hawk-Eye on a live Ashes graphic featuring commentary, 3D replays, scorecards, player stats and Twitter feed.
  • Ryder Cup Scorecard featuring live game and player stats, course guide with video fly-through and Twitter feed.
  • ‘Wall of debt’ visualisation to support coverage of George Osborne’s 2010 emergency budget.
  • Series of interactive timelines to support coverage of George W Bush’s memoirs, the Pope’s visit to Britain, the Royal wedding and the Battle of Britain anniversary.
