City of residence: Hong Kong
Graphics Director at South China Morning Post.
While I was studying Journalism at University of Navarra (Spain), I had the great fortune of discovering the subject of Infographic. In the first class, I was surprised by its basic concepts. In the second, I started to believe the maxim which claims that infographics is JOURNALISM IN CAPITAL LETTERS. By the third class, I was already addicted to this passionate world.
During the summer of 2008, I became part of the Infographics section at 'El Correo' newspaper (Spain). Our works are published in most regional newspapers of the Vocento group.
In July 2011, I became part of the Design section, where the newspaper´s daily pages are sketched, as well as its supplements and weekly magazine 'GPS'. That same year, 'El Correo' was awarded the continent's best-designed regional newspaper at the European Newspaper Design Award.
In June 2012, I returned to the Infographics section at Vocento, where I designed beside JM.Benítez the special coverage of the London Olympic Games: thirty-two explanatory graphics detailing each sport which achieved, among many other international awards, two gold medals at the Infographic World Summit Malofiej.
In March 2013 I completed a Professional Motion Graphics Masters Degree in Madrid where I worked as a freelance.
In September 2013 I´m moving to the Far East to work as a Senior Infographic Designer at South China Morning Post newspaper in Hong Kong.
In January 2015 I become Graphics Director at South China Morning Post. I lead graphics department in researching and creating information graphics, maps and charts for the newspaper and web sites.
