Forty years ago in a galaxy far, far away…

May 25, 2017 -- Star Wars is celebrating 40 years since the release of the first movie in 1977. The hugely successful movie franchise has been rejuvenated since Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4bn in 2012, with sequels and spin-offs being released annually.


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 @ graphicnews.com
