Me presenting Teletruth to senior product designers at the New York Times (the judges)


65% of U.S. adults received election information through a video-related source.

We did some secondary research to help answer our questions:

  • Where do people get their election news?
  • How do people find out what they’re reading/watching is true?
  • What is the problem we’re trying to solve?

45% of Americans still watch TV to stay updated on political news.

We broke down important keywords from the brief.

  • “What is a user-centric mobile-first experience”
  • “What does credibility look like?”
  • “What does trust look like?”
  • “What is election content?”
