May 2017

Graphic News

May 1-31, 2017 -- Events in May include France’s presidential run-off, the G7 summit in Sicily, and presidential elections in Iran. World leaders attend Chinese President Xi Jinping’s summit on his scheme to build a new Silk Road, South Korean voters elect a successor to Park Geun-Hye, and the Cannes Film Festival celebrates its 70th anniversary. Pippa Middleton’s wedding will attract much media attention, and the Golden Gate Bridge marks its 80th anniversary.

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 weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
