My name is Ferran Morales and I have been working as a data visualizer at Mundo Deportivo, a century-old sports newspaper based in Barcelona, for 23 years. At the beginning, my work was mainly focused on the paper edition, but over time I have evolved towards a more digital profile. I have learned to use new technologies and have kept up to date with trends in the field of digital journalism.

Project description:

After Roger Federer’s retirement, we conducted a special on our website where we analyzed, especially, his participation in the four Grand Slams.

Impact reached:

Feedback from users through comments on the website and social networks has been very positive.

Techniques/technologies used:

Technically we use scrollmagic.js to control the scroll, adobe suite and Google Sheets.

Context about the project:

After the retirement of tennis player Roger Federer, we prepared this special that gathers the most significant data of his career, as well as a complete detail of all his participations in Grand Slams tournaments.

What can other journalists learn from this project?

In recent times, there has been an increase in the use of the scroll technique in the presentation of data in digital works. On this occasion, we present an example of how to use this technique efficiently, without complicating the reader’s experience. In addition, it is essential to show the data in a concise and easy to understand way.
