- Client: "Snob" magazine
Snob is one of the most authoritative russian magazines It's serves as a web resource and community both off- and online, where Russian-speaking intellectuals from all over the world keep in touch and share their thoughts and ideas. Access is limited to club members or subscribers.
Task: To create an interactive map of conflicts between Russian celebrity Internet bloggers.
In November 2009, Snob published "Battlefield", an article dedicated to celebrity-bloggers' conflicts. Among the main observations, it has been mentioned that celebrities allow themselves to act more provocative on the Internet than in real life, which causes many public conflicts. Snob decided to invent an infographic map that would help readers find connections between celebrity online tiffs. Snob asked us to create this map that would show how stories correlate with each other and how they resonated in on- and offline life.
The project's scarce input data included only several numbers of conflicts, without exact details on personalities, relations, etc., so we were required to develop not only design solutions, but all of the content for the project as well, including monitoring and analysis of the facts.
