Most importantly, Chiqui makes everyone around him better by demanding excellence of himself and his colleagues. His contributions have been critical to making our graphics team one of the world’s best.
Chiqui is a well-known figure in the international infographics community. His work and that of teams he has led have repeatedly received recognition from the Malofiej International Infographics Awards, the Society of News Design, the European Newspaper Awards, APSE, and others.
