Welcome back to the show! This week, I’m very pleased to be joined by John Burn-Murdoch, Alan Smith, and Martin Stabe from the graphics desk at the Financial Times. Established in 1884, the Financial Times is one of the world’s leading business news and information organizations. In this episode, we talk about the changes in the FT newsroom and how the graphics desk and reporters work together; what that workflow looks like; the balance between static and interactive graphics; the new Chart Doctor series; and the skillsets they look for and need in the newsroom.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this and the last few episodes of the podcast. Please take just a minute to rate and review the show iTunes to help others learn about it and tune in each and every week.
