This project is a companion to the Our Future, Together project, about the economic contribution of immigrants to the US economy. In the immigration project, we chose a classic, reassuring style; for this project, we used a more abstract style to make a story of race, class, and inequality accessible yet universal.
The Center for American Progress asked the design firm I work with, Graphicacy, to translate a report into compelling interactives. The report is about the economic benefits of closing the achievement gap between White students, Hispanics, and Blacks. We created an animated explainer video with interactive charts, and a 'scrollytelling' web page, which shows how pernicious gaps open even before a child’s first day of school.
