Portfolio of the Week - Josemi Benítez

Infographic and editorial design from the El Correo's newsroom

June 1, 2015

It’s an indisputable fact that Spain has produced some of the most inspiring visual journalists of the last two decades, and we are quite happy to present you today the work of another one of those talented designers: Josemi Benítez, who has been responsible for the graphics section of the newspaper El Correo (Bilbao) for seven years.

Josemi began in the world of storytelling through images and texts working as a freelance artist for several advertising agencies, while getting degrees in Journalism and Advertising at the Universidad del País Vasco. In 1999 he began working as a Web designer in the Bilbao newspaper, helping to create elcorreo.com.

In 2002, Josemi returned to the paper version of the newspaper, coinciding with a key moment of the graphic evolution of the El Correo. Infographics gained space and a new style of graphics was buzzing. Since then, his work has been awarded a number of times by the Society for News Design and Malofiej News Design awards. In addition to his work at El Correo, he also taught infographic design at the University of Navarra and the Master in Multimedia El Correo-UPV / EHU.

Here are the works Josemi sent us:
