Vox, a division of Vox Media, has hired Javier Zarracina as its first-ever graphics editor.
In this role, Zarracina will expand the growing news company’s visual capabilities. He will work hand-in-hand with the video team to develop motion graphic content.
”Data visualization and information graphics aim to give context to the news, increase our audience’s understanding, and further our storytelling abilities,” he said. “I look forward to joining the team at Vox and leveraging a variety of graphics tools to reinforce Vox's mission of explaining the news.”
Previously, Zarracina did graphics for the LA Times and Boston Globe, where he was a member of the Pulitzer-prize winning team that covered the Boston Marathon bombings.
