Relay

Voice of America | Mobile App

Insomniac worked with the Office of Digital and Design Innovation of the Broadcasting Board of Governors to design Relay, a mobile-first experience that allows journalists to report on breaking news situations in real-time. The vision of this project was to revamp the way in which digital media outlets display and communicate breaking news to the public. The design involves a swipeable card system intended to be intuitive for both the reader and reporter. Reporters in the field submit content via email, by including the content type (text, video, audio) and the designated hashtag for a story in the subject line. This one-stop hub for real-time reporting has received accolades across the media, including The Huffington Post and PBS. Most recently, NASA successfully used Relay to document the launch of its Global Precipitation Monitoring system.
