If you aren’t solving a problem, then you shouldn’t call yourself a designer.
NPR’s Nathan Rott and photographer David Gilkey spent weeks reporting from Montana, talking to the humans who live with, study and hunt wolves. Along with our apps team, they’ve created a great multimedia experience that explores why these animals stir such deep emotions.
Great story and a well composed digital narrative. I personally love the seamless integration of ambient soundtracks triggered at specific anchors within the story to help elevate the readers relationship with the story and increase the depth of experience.

And other insights on bear repellents, zombie escapes, and how an artist can make you love science.
One of the best TV shows ever. I’ve watched this show from the start and will continue to watch it forever.
Almost nothing better then dogs & cycling together.
What, exactly, is the color indigo? It’s not purple, it’s not blue, and it was essentially invented (if one can “invent” a color) by Isaac Newton in the 17th century.
As explained by science writer Philip Ball in the video above, Newton was the first to demonstrate through his famous prism experiments that color is intrinsic to light. As part of those experiments, he also divvied up the spectrum in his own idiosyncratic way, giving us ROYGBIV. Why indigo? Why violet? We don’t really know why Newton decided there were two distinct types of purple, but we do know he thought there should be seven fundamental colors. There wasn’t any particular scientific reason he chose the number seven; he just thought it made more sense that way.
[In regards to offline websites] We’ve spent years teaching users that things they use in their web browser simply do not work offline. Users understand (at least at on some unconscious level) that the browser is the native app that gets sites/documents from the Internet. From a user experience standpoint, trying to teach the average user anything different is attempting to roll a quarry full of rocks up a hill.
Always great to hear audio geeks talk about their role in telling a great story
