Designing for Snapchat

Since August 2017, I have been working as a designer at The Washington Post as part of the emerging news products team. I am one of three people who designs and animates stories for The Post's Snapchat Discover channel. Snapchat Discover is a relatively new platform that tells stories in a highly visual way and engages a very young audience.

The Post publishes a Discover story five days a week, and each story contains a combination of "top snaps" (self-contained story summaries) and "longforms" (snaps with a swipe-up function that contains a full story or video). Throughout the day, we update our live story with breaking news as necessary.

Below, you can find a collection of my favorite snaps I've created so far.

Teaching Slavery

July 6, 2020

This 13-snap special edition was a package on how slavery is being taught in schools and a quiz to test readers' knowledge on slavery. It featured a beautiful Joan Wong illustration to start, and I created complementary illustrations to match her tone and style for the rest of the edition.

2020 Election Package

November 2020

This highlights a few of my favorite snaps from the 2020 presidential election. The election preview package introduced storylines and helpful graphics to watch during the election. I also designed our presidential call snap announcing Biden's win.
