Five years ago the Slow Journalism Company launched Delayed Gratification, a quarterly news magazine that returns to big events after the dust has settled. From the very first issue they have created beautiful infographics for the magazine which have won multiple awards.
Since 2012 the team have been teaching masterclasses in how to make infographics. They have taught at the Guardian, the UNHCR, the University of Oxford, Nissan and Selfridges.
This class is ideal for people with an interest in telling stories through data. No design experience is required and any practical work will be done with pen and paper – no laptops needed!
