Thanks for stopping by. My name is Ninian Carter. I hope you're enjoying my editorial graphics.
The name Graphic Gibbon comes from an old moniker bandied around when I worked for Reuters in London (1997-2005). I rather liked it, so I’ve pinched it to be the name of my website.
Here’s what I’ve been up to (if you want precise dates and things, there’s a link at the bottom of the page to a résumé pdf).
I’m the former Graphics Editor of The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia and The Observer in Britain. I’ve worked for several other renowned organisations, including The Scotsman (Edinburgh), JSI (now Agence IDIX, Paris), The Globe and Mail (Toronto), Reuters and Graphic News (both London).
Scottish born and raised, now living in Halifax, West Yorkshire, I’ve produced thousands of carefully designed charts, maps, diagrams, cutaways, icons and editorial features covering breaking news, current affairs, politics, science, technology, business and sports.
I have a BA Honours in Graphic Design from Edinburgh College of Art, and have won a clutch of SND Malofiej awards. My work is featured in several books, including Visual Language for Designers: Principles for Creating Graphics that People Understand (Connie Malamed).
In my spare time I like to write and so far have one published novel to my name, The Storm of Shadows (links below). It won a literary competition and subsequent publishing deal from Amazon Publishing in 2016. I’m tinkering with a sequel.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
Cheers for now,
