The work of Alberto Lucas López

Another amazing infographic designer from Spain, working in Hong-Kong

July 7, 2014

After dedicating the previous six editions of Portfolio of the Week to Brazilian infographic designers, we get back ‘on the road’, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to start this trip. Working currently at the South China Morning Post alongside Adolfo Arranz (who we had the pleasure to interview just a couple of weeks ago), Alberto Lucas López shared with us some of his amazing infographics, and told us how he began his professional career.

Alberto Lucas López, our featured Portfolio of the Week

 

“While I was studying Journalism at University of Navarra (Spain), I had the great fortune of discovering the subject of Infographics. 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 were published in most of the 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 alongside JM.Benítez, the special coverage of the London Olympic Games: thirty-two explanatory graphics detailing each sport.”

“In March 2013 I completed a Professional Motion Graphics Masters Degree in Madrid, where I worked as a freelance, and in September I moved to the Far East, to work as a Senior Infographic Designer at South China Morning Post newspaper in Hong Kong.”
