Knight News Challenge Interim Review

June 11, 2011

We are thrilled to announce our most recent collaboration with Redub and Papercut on a slide presentation for the Knight News Challenge’s Interim Review of their 2007 – 2008 grant winners. Launched in 2006, the Knight News Challenge is a media innovation contest that aims to advance the future of journalism by funding innovative ways to gather, share, and use local news to digitally inform communities. To better communicate their assessment of the accomplishments of the first two years’ worth of winners, the Knight Foundation asked Kiss Me I’m Polish to design a series of information graphics and illustrations for the comprehensive report, whose publication coincided with the announcement of the 2011 winners. Inspired by the newly redesigned Knight Foundation identity, our slide deck design helped make what could otherwise have been a pretty daunting and dry evaluation report more accessible, more fun, and more readable not only to the general public, but to those intimately involved with the topic of media innovation. Lucy Benholtz, of the highly regarded blog Philanthropy 2173, even went so far as to declared it the very first winner of the “Person’s Choice Award for Foundation Data Presentation“!
