New York City Emergency Management 2011 Biennial Report

Since 2006, C&G Partners has collaborated with New York City Emergency Management. During that time we have sought to bring the latest developments in interactive design to the department. 2011 marked a shift for the Biennial from a PDF format to a truly interactive report. To make the content as engaging as possible, color photography drives the visual experience with concise text used to support each image, rather than the reverse. Viewers have the option to diminish or expand on the text as they wish. They are also able to choose how they prefer to navigate the document: as a linear slide show; selecting from a pull-down menu; or clicking on an image from a thumbnail menu. Infographics help to illustrate progress, achievements and report on programs. The Biennial is coded to be accessible on both desktops and iPads, allowing it to be as “green” a contribution to the public domain as possible.
