Ripple Effect Phoenix

As part of our training for the Dow Jones News Fund digital media program, 11 interns produced a multimedia package about child drownings in the Phoenix area. I coded and published the website that hosts our project, dubbed Ripple Effect, and produced one of the audio packages in the story. It was a challenge to merge different media — text, video, audio, and graphics — into one cohesive story, but I think this works fairly well.
