These Fifty States is a Yale online-only publication devoted to capturing different aspects of place across America. The content is written, recorded, and photographed by Yale College students.
The site is built using Wordpress and a custom theme. The map on the front page of the site is implemented using Raphael.js. Since These Fifty States exists only on the internet, it was essential that the content be readable. The article layout is designed to mimic the experience of peering across the pages of a book, and they are a joy to read.
