Storytelling Within the Web

From the Spring 2011 ds106 class came the idea of changing up an existing web page to tell a new story ” you will be intervening in the code and design of a website of your choice to tell a story. You are not to photoshop the design of the site, but rather intervene in the actual html and CSS of the site—though you can photoshop particular images on the site. Essentially you alter the content of a web page (content, images) to make it tell a new story.

The Work Itself

The Story Behind the Story

So I am on the NPR website all of the time and thought it would be neat to change up the site myself with some crazy and wacky stories.

Narrating the Process

In order to begin with this project I looked at a ds106 student’s tutorial on it. Then I proceeded to add the titles and pictures necessary to change the website as you can see below.

Here’s a logo I made to replace the NPR one on the newly renovated site, however, it would not upload. I tried as many different ways as possible and for whatever reason, it would not work. But I still wanted to let people see it.
