If you have been on the internet, you’ve undoubtedly heard of babies treating magazines like iPads, trying to swipe, only to find out it’s a piece of paper.

Here at Levinology Labs, we agree. We want to be able to interact with what we’re seeing. Last week, we had the opportunity of working with Alaska’s Future to build an interactive budget balancing model. The idea was to clearly and concisely demonstrate the challenges in Alaska’s budget.

By utilizing animations, sliders, and presets, we empowered information seekers to play with the model to see how the proposed solutions would impact the state budget.
