Barack Obama at 50 – interactive guide

As Barack Obama begins his ‘relatively modest’ 50th birthday celebrations in Chicago, Garry Blight, an interactive designer working at The Guardian , and Richard Adams, the Guardian’s Washington journalist, have decided to go all out so he  doesn’t have to.

Creating this superb interactive timeline the Guardian now allows you to scroll through the political, economic and family milestones in Obama’s life that shaped the current most powerful man on the planet.

As far as interactive maps go this is probably one of the most innovative, fun to use and beautiful designs I have ever seen.
