The New York City Usability Professionals Association cordially invites
local IxDA members to:

*Telling Interactive Stories: The New York Times and the Online News
Experience*

a presentation by *Andrew DeVigal,* multimedia editor for *The New York
Times*

Tuesday, January 27 at 6:00 pm

How do we create compelling online news experiences? First, we traverse the
multimedia landscape to gather the pieces of our narrative: text, visuals
and data. Next, we design that story as one seamless experience in a simple
interface. Oh, and we mustn't forget to make it flexible enough to allow
last-minute changes and updates. In this presentation, we'll examine case
studies from The New York Times and explore some outside-the-box thinking.

SPEAKER
Andrew DeVigal is multimedia editor for *The New York Times* as well as the
co-founder of DeVigal Design, a print and interactive communications agency.
In the news industry since 1993, he runs Interactive Narratives, a website
sponsored by the Online News Association and dedicated to capturing the best
in online visual storytelling.

Andrew was recently profiled as a leading "renegade cybergeek" by *New
York*magazine. See

Here's Andrew's perspective on the rapid transformation of today's news
media:

"It's an exciting moment in the industry as new technologies enrich the
possibilities of journalism, giving us, storytellers, the ability to better
organize and present complex information as well as enhance the experience
of telling interactive stories through the fusion of text, photo, video,
audio and infographics."
