The leaked PRISM PowerPoint presentation in the Washington Post’s scoop about the NSA’s data-snooping program reveals yet another fact: The staffers in Special Source Operations have horrid design sensibilities.
Everything about the slides—the layout, the typefaces, the diagrams, the color palette—is wrong. Why use a sloped line graph to represent a timelime? C’mon, cyberspies!
We took a crack at reimagining the presentation with beautiful, informative, balanced-looking slides that would make America proud. (If you have the stomach for it, click on each slide to see the NSA’s awful version.) You’re welcome, NSA.
