Portfolio of the Week - Antonio Farach

Closing this year's Portfolios, infographic inspiration from Honduras

December 23, 2012  |  CATEGORIES: Portfolios

To close our 2012 series of Portfolios, we  bring you the work of Antonio Farach, currently the Head of Infographics at the Times of Oman and Al Shabiba newspapers, based in Muscat, Oman.

Antonio was a Civil Engineering student at the Honduras’ National University but ended up quitting after realizing  that he was most interested on producing his essays with its respective diagrams and illustrations that staying on construction fields.

He jumped from the concrete and iron directly to the newsroom as an infographic reporter in 1998 at the newspaper Tiempo, based in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. We can say he is a self-taught infographic person,  learning about journalism and graphic theory by himself.
