From 1985, he experimented with producing graphics digitally – or at least partially – on an Apple Macintosh, but the introduction of Adobe Illustrator 88 made him swap slide ruler and rubber cement glue for bits and bytes indefinitely.
After a decade of producing infographics for newspapers and commercial advertising agencies, besides freelance graphic and editorial designing for numerous weeklies and some monthlies, he accepted a full time job as an infographics editor at the Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad, where eventually he coordinated a 15-person strong department, dedicated solely to visualizing the news.
Ben joined Graphic News at the beginning of 2017.
At Graphic News she quickly recognized the need to make graphics available in German, and took on this responsibility herself - buying a Mac and learning to use Adobe Illustrator.
A "news addict", she also enjoys her countryside garden near Vienna, and says that "being a member of such a dedicated team is simply great".
Then, in 1989, he started a collaboration with the weekly Expresso, then the most widely circulated newspaper in Portugal, for the translation of features from all correspondents and covering the domains of science and technology as well as event reporting worldwide.
He joined Graphic News in 2011, and combines this with working on his olive farm.
Carmen joined Graphic News in 2008, giving her the opportunity to combine translation with English-language teaching.
