The Big Snoop

Data Visualization, Illustration


Illustration’s for Brooking’s Essay “The Big Snoop: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Terrorists”, written by Brookings Nonresident Senior Fellow Stuart Taylor, Jr., for longform journalism series The Brookings Essay. The essay brings together the views of multiple experts on NSA surveillance, national security, and privacy. I paired illustrations with a voyeuristic tone with visible user data to bring an experience of being monitored to the reader.

My roles for Brookings Essays No. 1 -10 (through Dec 2014) included graphic design, illustration, web development,  static and interactive charts, maps and data visualizations, photo research, and supplemental content research.  All elements including interactive charts, maps, and timelines are ‘fluid responsive’.
