I´m a Digital Artist working in Hong Kong at the SCMP in digital infographics and interactive features. Previously, a worked as Senior Infographic Designer for La Nación in Costa Rica.
I have a Bachelor degree in advertising design, and a BA in graphic arts; also advanced studies in investigative methodology and Ibero-American history. But through the years I have acquired knowledge about interactive’s and coding here in the company (La Nación) and by my own count in short courses.
I’ve been designing in communication media for more than 11 years, 8 of these at La Nación, where, as part of the team we have received several awards from SND and Malofiej.
My passion about infographics goes much far away than media; I was a Lecturer of information Design at the Science and Arts University of Costa Rica. My class was about basic principles of infographics and visualizations for print media.
Also in some free times wrote about design, infographics and arts for Visual744 a little blog from two friends and I. At Visual744 we talk about personal projects, failed publications, process of works, and other related topics in our professional life, most of my publications visualizing just for fun.
