Following what is happening around the world can be tough for even the most avid individuals, but Coda is a news platform that hopes to change that -- at least when it comes to keeping track of long-term crises. Designed by a team of journalists from the likes of the BBC and the New York Times alongside San Francisco design firm Method, this news platform publishes deep dives on just a few conflicts in the world.

Considering how many world issues fall off the radar after the initial whirlwind of media attention it receives, this news platform can help people who truly care get the information and updates they are expecting to receive. Organizing the content by themes, Melissa Clark, client services lead at Method and Ilan Greenberg, co-founder at Coda, note, "It's great because it allows us to follow events both thematically and chronologically, and to track trends rather than just events."
