Foreign Investments Uncovered, 2007-2016 – BIRN

Responsive web design (based on Bootstrap), front-end development and graphic design for BIRN (Balkan Investigative Reporting Network) Macedonia and USAID Macedonia, for the Foreign Investments Uncovered (“Странски инвестиции под лупа“) interactive database.

The database provides access to publicly available information about the foreign investments in the Republic of Macedonia, within the period of 2007 to 2016.

The landing page reveals the most indicative parameters and offers quick access to specific investment profile pages, featuring link groups such as: biggest foreign investments, foreign investments with the most employees, industries with the biggest number of investments etc.

Data can be filtered by several parameters and explored through investment profiles pages and group results views with many visualizations (powered by Highcharts).

The design is strong on iconography, colors and contrast.

The Foreign Investments Uncovered interactive database is awarded with the Nikola Mladenov Award of the Macedonian Institute for Media and shortlisted in the Data Journalism Awards 2017 competition, in the category “Small newsrooms”.
