USAToday: Pumped Dry

The fine editors at The Desert Sun tapped for me for an international Pulitzer project to investigate globally vanishing groundwater. I assisted the USA Today team in creating engaging graphics and was tasked with producing the longform pieces, working with lead reporter Ian James to strategically place media within the story. 

Pumped Dry won several awards, including the Knight-Risser award. 

Read the series.

 Inspired by the  New York Times' beautiful "Snow Fall" interactive longform , we tried to replicate some of the scroll effects within the constraints of our CMS.

 As part of of the production team, I provided creative direction for the landing page and videos.
