The tutors

Rob Orchard and Christian Tate are the editorial and art directors of the Slow Journalism Company.

Five years ago they launched Delayed Gratification, a quarterly news magazine that returns to big events after the dust has settled. Since issue #1 they have created beautiful infographics for the magazine which have won multiple awards – including an Information is Beautiful award for this infographic about how to win an Oscar.

Since 2012 they’ve been teaching masterclasses in how to make infographics. They have taught at the Guardian, the UNHCR, the University of Oxford, Nissan, Tesco, Selfridges and at companies in Portugal, Ireland and Belgium.


This class is ideal for people working in publishing, marketing, communications, advertising or PR. It will also suit academics, researchers, analysts and anyone who is interested in finding more engaging ways to present data.

No design experience is required and all practical work will be done with pen and paper – no laptops needed!

The price

299 € for the day, including coffee, lunch, a copy of the latest issue of ‘Delayed Gratification’ magazine and an exclusive ‘How to make infographics’ poster. Class participants will be emailed a zip file of all presentation documents at the end of the course. A special 10% earlybird discount applies until 28th May.

Maximum class size: 36.
