First try at New Hive: A graphic on BAE Systems and the proposed shutdown of the Bradley Industrial Base

shutdown

So, it’s 10 p.m., and I really wish I was watching Chicago Fire.

However, I got addicted to New Hive instead.

I was inspired to use it after checking out fellow DFM ideaLabber Aimee Heckel’s blog.

And, although I’m no graphic designer, I think this embeddable graphic with clickable elements is pretty cool.

And anyone can do it. I mean … if you can use Paint on your  computer, you can use New Hive.

SIDE NOTE: I spent like an hour trying to draw those stupid tanks inside paint before I pasted them into New Hive.

You can embed photos, link to files, create different texts, and even sketch right inside the program.

I wish I could embed the thing here, but my blog is kind of stupid and doesn’t like iframe coding. Guess that’s the price I pay for not paying cash money for a real website…

Click here to check out the full graphic in all its glory.

And here’s a post from our social media coordinator Buffy Andrews on the platform.

  2. Reblogged this on edupunked and commented:
    Keeping with the theme of how journalism and education are changing in very similar ways, I think that this tool – which is used in a journalistic way here – could easily be translated into a classroom tool much more powerful than PowerPoint or Google Presentations. And shared too!

  3. I like using simple and clean boxes to organize the information to keep the graphic from getting too stimulating. Very nice!
