Spotlight On NW Creative: Periscopic

Portland-based Periscopic is a socially conscious information visualization firm, and a featured winner in this year’s CA Interactive Annual for their work on VoteEasy, a project by the nonpartisan group, Project Vote Smart.

Utilizing thousands of hours of research and a vast collection of data, this voter education tool allows the general public to quickly and easily see how closely political candidates align with their views on twelve key issues. The navigation does not offer set paths throughout the content; instead it’s based on the information needs of the visitor. Much like a choose-your-own-adventure book, visitors can choose a path based on state, zip code, district and candidate details such as campaign financing and voting records.
