The FRONTLINE film, Supreme Revenge, tracks the GOP’s decades-long effort to transform the supreme court into a conservative majority. On the digital team we decided this was a good opportunity to craft an experience for the website that was lighter and more playful than our typical content.

This Supreme Court Quiz was based on a previous quiz we did. I wanted the imagery to match the tone of the piece—to be more playful and illustrative while still representing the justices’ portraits in a straightforward way. I started out by sketching some different collage illustration styles for the justice images.

I updated our quiz template with new styles and I added some basic scoring functionality.

I landed on a final collage style that combined textural elements from the U.S. Constitution document with photos of the Supreme Court building.
