Included are multimedia storytelling options with published examples and a PDF job aid to hang by your desk. The examples are classic interactive storytelling components that any designer should be familiar with.
What caught my attention was the last bullet in Data-driven graphics:
“Experience with databases, queries and data scraping is fast becoming an important part of interactive storytelling.”
Now, it’s unclear just “who” is learning these new database skills, but I’ll bet they aren’t programmers or developers. Most likely, it’s a journalist, interactive designer or media designer who’s having to learn such competencies.
It’s always interesting to follow the new skills each profession is asked to learn. From doctors and lawyers (finally) learning to use the Internet, to multimedia designers learning adult learning principles, it’s all part of our professional evolution.
Be sure to download the PDF and browse the real-world examples and interactive graphics.
