Popular Science: Best of What’s New 2006, lead producer

Each year, Popular Science runs a feature article in its November issue highlighting 100 of the best innovations in technology, science, and engineering. In bringing this content to the web, my team and I needed to devise a template to handle every innovation equally. I worked with a designer, coder, and CMS specialist to devise an architecture for the site which resulted in one uniform template to handle each of the innovation pages in order to keep the project within budget.

I was responsible for the gathering and organization of dozens of pieces of content for each of the 100 innovations; we featured a combination of slideshows and video clips for nearly every item. I assisted with the bulk of the production art work and data entry, shepherding every step of the site build process.

The microsite proved tremendously successful for the magazine, drawing double the highest traffic it had yet seen. It was also the winner of the Best Web-Only Tool at the 2006 MPA Digital Awards.
