Guardian graphics team wins award

Good to see that the Guardian newspaper’s graphics team has one a handful of awards at the Malofiej18 graphic design competition. From the UK perspective at least they are leading the way with regards to the use of information graphics to support their articles. I don’t necessarily always agree with the selection of graphical methods they employ, but you cannot argue with the appeal and supplementary value they bring to the newspaper’s output.

Silver Award for ‘Public sector workers: what we pay them’

Bronze Award for ‘The deficit mountain’
