Fast quality visual digital reporting



The fantastic Mr Esteban

Juan Antonio Giner of Innovation has produced a worthy homage to Chiqui Esteban who leads the New Visual Naratives department of lainformacion.com in Madrid

His team: he, Carlos Gamez and Sarah Potts

Yes

3! (three)

They use Flash, Illustrator, Photoshop, Cinema 4d, Dreamweaver, Soundbooth, Premiere and Click2Map for Google Maps

JAG comments

Chiqui and Carlos are fast like the best writers of the best newswire services

They are quick, but accurate, and always focus on “the news behind the news” trying to explain, to find out, discover new angles and delivering not just facts but graphic ideas and fast quality journalism

This is a 24/7 full time team and they are on permanent deadline mood

Chiqui and Carlos have limited resources but unlimited creativity, and shows what you can do when you have real journalists


Chique works with Mario Tascon, the Director

I remember many years ago at Malofiej, in the late 90's, Mario announced that in 10 years infographics would be dead

A huge gasp and grumble from the floor

Many said that he was mad, insane

Well, the truth is, that as we have seen with work from the NYT and Chiqui's work with lainformacion.com, THESE are not infographics, not TV, not one dimensional print, not audio

But the future of news reporting

Innovative

Creative

Information to and for the people

The new journalism!
