Phil Bainbridge

Phil is a Director of Graphic News, and oversees the production side of the business along with Duncan Mil.

Phil was recruited as a young graduate because of his beautiful product design airbrush work, but later demonstrated a remarkably wide range of abilities. After initially working in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to produce beautiful and interesting graphics on a wide range of subjects, he oversaw the transition of the Graphic News website from a FirstClass client-software bulletin board system of the 1990s to the modern delivery platform it is today, meeting the challenges of displaying both our static and interactive graphics from desktop to mobile.

Becoming equally at home with HTML5, CSS, Javascript, and server-side languages while developing the website, Phil has led the development of our interactive and digital products, and spurred by a keen interest in sport, developed techniques for dynamically including live data in both “static” flat graphics produced in Adobe Illustrator and then in interactive graphics produced in Adobe Flash, Adobe Edge Animate and Tumult Hype. These have since been applied to major packages including the Olympics, World Cups and US. elections, reaching millions of readers around the globe.
