The Economist Stories


Agency: The Economist, Modesta Žemgulytė, Eglė Každailytė, Lucy Rohr & Ria Jones

Some of the many stories I worked on as part of the The Economist’s Social team. I was part of establishing the visual tone of their social journalism, compiling research on competitors ahead of the instagram refresh strategy, collecting data on our story performance and creating and testing guides for designing stories as quickly as possible.












Collaborating with Social Editors Lucy Rohr and Ria Jones, we would be working to tight daily deadlines to script, copycheck, storyboard and animate stories every week from the most recent issue.

Both the Democracy Index story and the Ethical Landmines story were also scripted by myself.
