Third consecutive european infographic porfolio, this time from Spain. It’s a real pleasure to feature one of the most experienced and talented interactive visualization designers out there, responsible for a great number of works that really outstand the principles of good data visualization. With you, Juan C. Sanchez.
“My first experiences with Infographics started doing jobs and projects for different customers while I was studying my degree in Advertising, in Madrid. In addition to these studies and while performing an internship in some Advertising agencies, I studied a master’s degree in Graphic Design in 1997.
In 1998, the master in infographics Rafa Estrada was creating a team for a new newspaper, Diario de Sevilla (Spain), proposed to me to be part of the beginning of this newspaper. What an exciting project!
That was when I understood one of the most important things when you work in a newspaper, “you know when you start but you never know when you finish” and between Breaking news, science’s graphics, economy, international… I published different jobs in the newspaper’s printed edition for two years.
At the end of the year 2000, I got a call from someone very well known by all of us because of his great career, Alberto Cairo. In January 2001, I started to be part of the interactive graphics’ team at the digital newspaper ELMUNDO.es (Spain). Nowadays, I’m still working in the newspaper’s multimedia Infographic department, worldwide leading web site in Spanish.
Currently I’m also collaborating as Coordinator and teacher of Visualization Module in the Master in Journalism Research, Data and Visualization, organized by the School of Journalism and Communication, Editorial Unit (EL MUNDO) and the University Rey Juan Carlos.
My key areas: Online Immediate coverage of current news and multimedia projects in the medium and long term for web and tablets.”
