The pieces that result cover topics as broad as the U.S. presidential election, how Japanese nuclear reactors work, the challenges of balancing the federal budget and the remarkable success of New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera.  Learn how graphics editors at The Times report, design, and edit these projects, integrating interactivity with storytelling and clearly explaining the news while engaging and delighting readers.
