My reporting class had just 4 weeks to come up with everything for this site- from the initial idea to the finished product. We had a brainstorm session, finally decided on “student debt” at UW-Madison and spent a couple hours brainstorming story ideas.

Our graphic designer, Michael, came up with a great image, part of which you can see at the top of this page. He and he other web designer, Esta, decided on a scroll-down site on Creatavist, which resulted in a very professional-looking project. Topics of people’s stories included:
My role was reporter.
We entered the site in several contests and are awaiting results!
