Since I turned down a job early in my career to do graphics at a TV station, I was chuffed to get another opportunity to play on TV.
This was one of the biggest media events ever in South Africa. The whole country was glued to their screens. My solution was a device and platform agnostic application visualising data, that would serve as a second screen as well as a tool for journalists, and also be able to be used as live visualisation by the TV station themselves.
Data was pulled from a number of social listening tools to give a user-friendly, live view of what was happening in the trial and the social media space.
The data visualisations could also be used on other media properties as widgets and journalists also had the ability to be output any of the data as PDFs - and thus garnering tonnes of free media and credibility for the TV channel.
