Gimme Props: An Interactive Guide to California’s Propositions
on November 4, 2012
What is Gimme Props!? The simplest answer is an experiment.
Seven students at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism were frustrated with the way that propositions are usually covered — so they decided to try something new. Their mission: to take dry material and explain it in an interactive, lighthearted way, broadening the audience that learns about these important ballot measures. Gimme Props! uses data visualization, quizzes, games, and interactives to present this information in a way that is compatible with a younger generation that digests media in a different fashion. Let us know what you think!
The Gimme Props project was created by John Osborn, C.K. Hickey, Brittany Schell, Evelyn Xiaoqing Pi, Erik Reyna, Christy Khoshaba and Stacey Kennelly.
