Richard Branson 2015

Graphic News

July 18, 2015 -- Richard Branson, British businessman and entrepreneur, turns 65. Branson opened his first record store on London’s Oxford Street in 1971 and launched the Virgin Records label two years later. The brand expanded rapidly and today the Virgin Group holds over 400 companies worldwide, encompassing entertainment, travel, telecommunications and financial services, amongst others. According to Forbes, Branson was the UK’s seventh richest citizen in 2014 with an estimated net worth of $4.9 billion.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
