How Vox, AJ+ and FOLD use cards for context in storytelling

Vox, AJ+ and FOLD have all adopted a digital version of index cards to add value and context to ongoing stories. At AJ+, cards can quickly update the reader on the newest information, provide context with a graphic or video, or add a human element with a short documentary. AJ+’s David Cohn says cards are “about threading these elements together to tell a cohesive story, as opposed to trying to treat them all like they are not related.”
