In March of 2013 Texas State Senator Carlos Uresti proposed a bill that would increase the smoking age from 18 to 21 in Texas. Interested in seeing how Austin residents viewed these kinds of initiatives and laws on smoking, four classmates and I set out to interview smokers, non-smokers, and those involved with the bill.

We used sound slides, photos, audio interviews, and static and interactive charts to visualize an otherwise plain and text heavy story.
