|ESPN.co.uk brings archives to life with immersive storytelling
ESPN.co.uk’s annual review of the biggest stories of the year used Shorthand to deliver a visually-appealing recall of key events in the sporting calendar
The Snow Fall effect continues, as more and more news outlets seek out ways to deliver full-impact, multimedia features on digital platforms.
One of the latest examples was launched by ESPN.co.uk last week, which served to deliver both a full-screen storytelling experience and highlight one way to bring content out of the digital archives and inject it with a new lease of life.
The feature, part of an annual project highlighting the biggest stories in sport over the last year was built using Shorthand, a new platform for building immersive digital content experiences and which first partnered with the Guardian on another sports-themed feature earlier this year. The platform is currently working towards the launch of a public tool anyone can use.
