The Times has a new professional for its infographics department: Mario Cameira, who works for the portuguese newspaper Publico. Mario won't start at The Times until the first of March, but the deal is done.
Mario is author of the blog Infografando, and has been hired as senior infographic journalist at the english daily. One thing we have to notice is that this hiring comes months after Rafa Höhr signed with The Sunday Times, so we can figure out the idea of the businness: more online graphics.
Both hirings has similar profiles: experience in print before becoming online nfographic journalists, with clear, clean and smart online graphics.
Congratulations to Mario Cameira and The Times.
