Carlos Gámez Kindelán

From Spain, interactive graphic beauty without loosing the journalistic purpose

August 5, 2012

Continuing our tradition of bringing to you the talent of information designers from all over the world, we’re honored to present today the work of Spanish visual journalist and interactive designer Carlos Gámez Kindelán.

And we say honoured not because our previous Portfolios were less interesting or beautiful. They were all amazing. But we’ve been admiring Carlos’ work for some time now, and, in a world where the English language overtakes the Internet, it’s a true pleasure to show such great examples of interactive visualizations in other languages – that is, after all, the ultimate challenge for a data visualization, right? To break through those boundaries and be universally understood.

Carlos has recently launched ‘Visual20‘ in 20minutos.es, third largest Spanish news site in number of users, and the third Spanish-language digital media worldwide. He studied Advertising and Design, and began publishing his work  in Spanish newspapers Marca and Diario de Sevilla, and also in magazines like Technology Review, Scientific American, Science&Vie and Reader’s Digest, among others.

He worked as the Graphics Editor at  5Wgraphics , a well known infographic agency,  and was responsible for computer graphics in ELPAÍS.com and lainformacion.com. Throughout his career, Carlos won awards for his infographics in SND (Society for News Design), Digital SND, ONA, Malofiej and ÑH,  and has been a judge, speaker and teacher for prestigious organizations and media companies in Spain and Latin America. In 2009, founded his own visual communications agency, ‘Factoría multimedia‘.

And now, some of the works picked by Carlos himself. Please click though the images to explore the interactive versions of the infographics (in Spanish).
