    Covadonga Fernández

    Degree in Journalism from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She has worked as an infographic designer at El País, Cinco Días, Diario Público and AHORA Semanal. In addition, having specialised in medical and journalistic infographics, she works with media such as elDiario.es and La Marea.
    She has built her career in the field of business communication, carrying out consultancy work in visual communication strategies for companies such as CaixaBank or the Sovereign Wealth Data Lab, of the Instituto de Empresa.

    Infographics cover an area that is as close to the work of a designer as it is to that of a journalist, so for one or for the other, having extensive knowledge of infographics will facilitate their work both when presenting information and when narrating it. Infographics involve both organising a large quantity of data and telling a story with said data that the reader comes to discover. It is the most beautiful way to communicate.
