Today, the Brookings Institution launches “Brookings Creative Lab,” an innovative approach that illuminates Brookings research data with compelling images and storytelling. Led by George Burroughs, creative director in the Office of Communications, Brookings Creative Lab aims to showcase Brookings experts and their research through best-in-class data visualization, graphic, and interactive techniques. “We’re trying to give a face to the numbers,” Burroughs says.
Brookings Creative Lab goes live today with a powerful, first-person look at Baltimore, filmed on location not long after the unrest that gripped parts of the city. Watch below:
The Brookings Creative Lab team has produced many other fascinating multimedia presentations based on Brookings research, including:
