This was an interactive piece I found on the NYTimes site. The story describes the year 2012 with pictures and a short amount of text. The pictures are very vivid and rich with action.
The navigation on the site is very easy to use and is clearly accessible for the user. It is located at the top and is highlighted on the month that is being previewed. I was easily taken to the correct month in 2012 and was never unsure of it. Within the pictures, you can also see more images and text explaining that particular month in 2012.
All the pictures are from the world and tend to focus more on the bad in the world. That would be my only negative critique for this project is that the pictures are swayed to more graphic and gory images to add a more shock appeal aspect. I would also liked to have seen the date of the event more prominently displayed. The date of the event is only mentioned in the caption and should be more largely displayed for the user.
