How do you bring life and color to a story about economics? Politico relied on Blink creators to do just that. J.P. Morgan teamed up with Politico’s research and content teams to present essays about how Detroit and Phoenix rely on culture and civic identity to find solutions to economic issues.
Politico brought the hard facts and infographics, while Blink dispatched local crews in each of the cities to capture photos of landmarks, scenes, and people that breathe life into their communities. The photos became a visual essay that transformed abstract ideas into portraits of the places and people that are working together to power the growth and continued success of their local economies.
