Title: Washington Post Election Coverage

Comments: “This is tight editing of a portfolio for an election. These pieces have a deep engagement factor. They push the envelope and invite you to think and engage. Audience engagement is the reason we have jobs today. They consistently do that well. Part of what sets their work apart is in how they handle scaling. Some sites can overscale or bloat on desktop, but The Post’s visualizations and design take advantage of big screen. They show a lot of creativity and analytical thinking in these pieces.”
