First day of 2016 here on Visualoop, and after sharing our selection of vintage maps, graphics and diagrams, it’s time for another one of our weekly regular columns, dedicated to showcase infographic designers from all around the world.
Today’s featured designer comes from Argentina, although is currently living in Spain, where he works at the sports daily newspaper Diario AS. Fernado Robato was born in 1972 in Santiago del Estero, where he studied up to college, graduating in Social Communication at the Universidad Católica.
His first work in a newsroom was at the local newspaper El Liberal, as illustrator/designer. When the newspaper decided to invest more in infographics, and create a graphics department, Jeff Goertzen was brought in to assist in this task. Fernando joined the then recently created department, until 2000, when he won the Peter Sullivan Grant from Reuters and the University of Navarra (Spain), taking him to enjoy working experiences in Madrid, Navarra and London.
In that same year, he was invited to join the graphics desk of one of Spain’s most important sports publications, Diario AS. The infographics Fernando sent to us were all published in this newspaper.
