The rise and fall of the ‘Frack Master’
This is a look at how people can build their personal brands and become ‘experts’ on CNN, FOX, CNBC, The Times and your local news outlets. The writer and I planned out the chapter structure and navigation of this story at the beginning drafting stages. The story design is meant to add a sense of pacing and help readers see progress as they scroll. Since the story didn’t lend itself to photo opportunities, I also created several graphics using D3.js and a trophy case illustration with all of the awards Chris Faulkner has received and lost during his media craze.
