Election night blogging

NYTimes.com design director Khoi Vinh’s does some behind-the-scenes blogging about the design work on the website’s election coverage package.

Later: Only late tonight did I come to appreciate the Tuftean clarity of the NYTimes.com’s informative graphics. For example, the “blue dot” map (12:18 a.m. EST screen grab below) below conveys more than the past three hours of talking-heads on TV. I’m going to bed, wake up in the morning and check back in with this map. The pundits can add little.

  • I agree. The NYT House map is BRILLIANT. I love it.
