Graphic News

February 9-25, 2018 -- South Korea is hosting the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. The 24 sporting competitions across the 15 disciplines of the Olympic Winter Games are represented by 24 pictograms. The design for the pictograms is based on the Korean alphabet - Hangeul, a system of letters unique to Korea with 16 vowels and 14 consonants. For the design of the pictograms, four consonants and three vowels were selected together with the representative pose for each sport.

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 @
