Audio slideshow: Emerald Ash Borer

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel launched a project focusing on the efforts to fight the invasive Emerald Ash Borer in December of 2006. At that time, I had created a microsite for this project and also constructed the following  slideshow for the Dec. 15, 2006 edition. The microsite is no longer accessible.

MJS photographer Tom Lynn took the photos and gathered the audio. I edited the audio and put together this audio slideshow in Soundslides.

Site design: Foreclosure project

I created this microsite about regional foreclosures in October of 2007 on the previous version of the Cincinnati Enquirer‘s website. ¬†We redesigned in the spring of 2008, the new page design for the new template set is here.

This was a team project that includes stories from several reporters, data content from our data staff, graphics from the art department and the input of several editors. I created the interactive slideshow included in Slideshow Pro from photos gathered online. I created the microsite originally using a combination of HTML, javascript, AJAX and Gannett’s Saxotech CMS calls. What you see here is a reproduction of the original site with the Saxotech content replaced by pure HTML code. It might not be super-fancy, but then again, this was the first design I’d ever done using javascript or AJAX.
