Years ago I had the privilege of working at ProPublica for around a month. As a non-coder, I couldn't help much with interactive projects so, at the same time that I was observing the dynamics of the newsroom —something I used for the Nerd Journalism e-book— I offered help with illustrations such as these ones.
I also drew portraits of many folks from the newsroom and outside that the ProPublica nerds team has just transformed into a typeface! It's called WeePeople, and you should feel free to download it and use it at will. ProPublica already has, in this visualization.
