The team that produce the graphics at Graphic News are headed by Duncan Mil, who taught graphics at Canterbury (in the UK) but got hooked on the news when he worked at the Sunday Times, London. He was the first graphic journalist to cover a news event live when he represented Reuters at the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
Graphic News infographics combine drawn elements, pictures and words to tell news stories visually. Each has a headline at the top, and then a paragraph about the news event. We use a "photo-realistic" (rather than iconic) style as the reality attracts the eye and overcomes cultural and educational barriers. The graphics are primarily produced for media publishers, but are made available to teachers so classes can be related to live news events and students encouraged to think about what is going on in the world

I don't think I read a newspaper myself until I met Duncan! As a biologist (I did my PhD in pharmacology) I read Nature and Scientific American - but the stories in newspapers seemed so incomprehensible. Now I see beyond the headlines - thanks to Graphic News.
