I am an infographic designer for a national newspaper in the UK. Around 2million people a day look at my work in the paper and more on our very popular web site on in kindle and now on iPad. If I make a mistake complaints flood in so you have be as careful as possible.
Daily newspapers are exiting, scarey and sometimes funny places to work.
You go into work without knowing exactly what you will be doing that day. There are people who are a pain to work with but the job really gets your brain working. Almost every job/ graphic I do is started and finished on the same day including research. I even sometimes get to use my own photographs in my work.
I am now ready to become more freelance as I am set up with the full range of Adobe software.
