I’m overseeing the interactive team at Zeit Online. Our fields of work cover a wide range. You might have seen one of our storytelling projects in recent years: Fremde Freunde, Eine Nation pendelt, Das geteilte Land or Das neue Leben der Stalinallee, to name a few. We’re also working hard to build better visualization tools for our newsroom. A few recent examples: Our new maps editor, the collections tool, changing the look of Google forms, a template for embedding messenger style conversations or working with ai2html for better looking, detailed maps.
From time to time I’m posting short blog posts. A few samples: Why show dead people in the news? | Street art guide to Friedrichshain | Visiting a former Stasi prison in Berlin | The rice fields of Tam Coc, Vietnam
