This year we’re continuing our series of DG classes at King’s College London, teaching monthly sessions on how to make infographics and how to launch an indie magazine.
In the infographics classes we show how we create our infographics, from initial idea to final piece, touching on how to find stories on data, the basic types of infographic and examples of best and worst practice. The course is not technical and is suitable for total beginners and advanced graphic designers alike.
On 26th September 2016, a peace deal was signed between the Colombian government and the country’s biggest rebel army, Farc. For our latest issue we spoke to Spanish photographer Alvaro Ybarra Zavala, who spent 15 years documenting the different sides of the 52-year-old civil war. Here are some of his stunning photos and the stories behind them.
In every issue of Delayed Gratification we calculate how many trees were felled to bring celebrity gossip stories to the newsstands – here are our latest findings.

In issue #24 of Delayed Gratification, we told the incredible story of the ‘human shields’ who in 2003 took three double-decker ‘peace buses’ and a white London cab from London’s Tower Bridge to Baghdad in an effort to thwart an invasion of Iraq. By stationing themselves at strategically important places, the human shields hoped to prevent coalition forces from dropping bombs on these locations.
Among the passengers were photographer Julian Simmonds and Joe Letts, the owner of two of the double-deckers and the cab used during the trip. Here Letts tells the story behind some of Simmonds’ shots that didn’t make it into the print magazine.
