Information age

Informatics disembarking at a particular time favoring the aspirations of India, the current leader in quality and innovation in computer graphics computer.
Born publishing. Are the first computers with some word processing skills. The Apple Macintosh (1986) showed charts, albeit in a very rudimentary and limited.
News (1986-1989). Thanks to computers, the agencies realize they can send graphics and computer-journals subscribed to (digitally send visual data), as many of them had no ability to create computer graphics. The newspapers just changed the language and some elements of place, allowing the makers of the daily work and familiarity with graphics on the Mac, and publishers bring new local theme. Reuters is the largest agency in terms of volume, while notable for its quality KFT.
Increased competition. In 1990, The World, The Sun, Daily Independent and 16 at full capacity is an increase of competition, after a period of absolute hegemony of El Pais. Especially El Mundo and El Sol pushed upstream by the infografia. In this sense, the sun was born as a very visual diary, with full color cover. In fact, newspaper is the first ‘digital’ world, ie completely through a digital process for the color, text, etc. Similar to USA Today, was opposed to the seriousness of El Pais.
Journal 16, for its part, is betting on inforgrafia too, and begin to build sections built from scratch. The newspaper El Mundo is the most victorious from an informative, but also the final bid by the quality of journalistic inforgrafia.
The milestone of the first Gulf War unleashed a barrage of graphics in an unusual battle in which there were no journalists in front of a sparse, since the ground offensive lasted only 10 days (only two in Baghdad, including the Spanish Alfonso Rojo ). During the conflict the Sun daily bag a double page, full color (an extraordinary effort imposed by the editors without much reason, as much information not provided). It is a period of great experimentation that allowed the development of infografia worldwide, but especially in our country, that experiment after the war another great world-class event. The Olympic Games in Barcelona, and to a lesser extent the Exposicion Universal de Sevilla infografia boosted quality and turned Spain into a world leader in this field in just two years, which still holds today. However, nowadays the tendency is to increase the total number of graphics but reduce the size of them.
Malofiej Award. Since 1993, the World Society of Newspaper Design (SND, in English) distributed annually in Navarra Malofiej prizes. Spain becomes the specialized area (next to USA) which go all the gurus infografia place where all the training courses, etc.. These five reasons explain infografia supremacy in Spanish, as reflected in the annual awards palmares Malofiej (so named in honor of the Argentine Alejandro Malofiej cartographer, who for much of the 70s and early 80s do graphics and maps newspapers and magazines in his country, did not receive the name of Peter Sullivan because this is still alive in its creation).
