One of National Public Radio’s first attempts to produce interactive visual storytelling for the web, this project describes the economics of the garment industry by following the journey of a single t-shirt around the world. The project was made possible by a
Kickstarter campaign that raised $590,000, more than 10 times the producers’ original goal.
