Legacies 150 is one of a series of thirteen photo-based interactive essays produced by The National Film Board of Canada to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday and to showcase its diversity of people, place and experience. I was hired to art direct and design five of the stories. Each story was crafted with the digital reader in mind – the stories had to flow seamlessly and guide online readers through a immersive scroll-based journey combining beautiful full bleed photography, sound, subtle movement and text. In addition to being presented online, Legacies 150 is currently showing as a museum exhibit in Toronto and Halifax and is featured in media publications across Canada.
