As a follow-up to the Expense Visualizer project we took the opportunity offered by the Google Dataviz Challenge in 2011 and created an interactive tool to explore the recently published US Federal budget.
We decided to design the ineractive mainly as a tool to explore the data, while also offering a narrative to put the numbers in context. Samantha, our studio journalist, created many bite-size articles grouped by categories (healthcare, defence, public debts, etc) highlighting different periods or government functions.
The interactive was selected as finalist in the Dataviz challenge.
This project was created along with Audrée Lapierre, Samantha Rideout & James McKinney
