The Interpretive Media Awards presented by the National Association for Interpretation promotes excellence in the delivery of natural, cultural, and historical interpretive services.

As a part of the renewal of the McLeod Plantation Historic Site in Charleston, South Carolina, William Graham of Graham Studios was commissioned to create, “The McLeod Plantation Historic Site: Transition to Freedom app,” a self-guided iPhone tour of pre-Civil War cotton production.

In collaboration with the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission and The Design Minds, Inc.; Bill created illustrations and motion graphics that presented an historically accurate depiction of the process of picking, cleaning and ginning cotton which depended entirely on slave labor.

The app can be downloaded here.
