We partnered with OPRO by Open Progress, a digital media agency for progressive candidates and causes, to develop infographics and animations for Katie Porter's 2018 congressional campaign. Running as a progressive Democratic in California's 45th Congressional District, a longtime Republican stronghold, Porter faced an uphill battle. By visualizing a clear and authentic narrative about the issues that mattered to Porter we helped her to break through to a wider audience.
After a neck-and-neck race that lasted more than a week after the polls closed, Katie Porter won the 45th congressional district in Orange County, becoming the first Democrat to hold the seat.
The “Beaches” video was viewed in full more than 100,000 times on Facebook and Instagram alone.
“The animation by Kilter allowed for a visceral connection to the question being posed by Katie: who do you trust to protect our Orange County jewel — our beaches and ocean front? In a race that was won by under 10,000 votes, this work mattered.”
