In this article, Wesley Lindamood, senior interaction designer at NPR Visuals, writes about the top guides from NPR’s playbook on how to create interactive projects that will help you give your audience a new storytelling experience.

“At NPR, we have used an editorial development process called hypothesis-driven design on many successful projects. It is inspired by similar processes in product development that emphasise lightweight testing and prototyping to validate ideas,” writes Lindamood.

The article provides an introduction to hypothesis-driven design, as well as a dowloable step-by-step guide for taking projects from concept to completion.
