Introduction
Ninian Carter is a prominent British infographic artist and designer working predominantly in the newspaper and magazine sector. The former Graphics Editor of The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia and The Observer in Britain, he has worked for several renowned news agencies and newspaper titles around the world, including The Scotsman (Edinburgh), JSI (now Idé, Paris), The Globe and Mail (Toronto) and Reuters (London).

Career highlights include being sent to the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games to oversee Reuters graphic output and helping produce some of the world’s first commercially successful interactive web graphics.

Ninian was educated at The University of Edinburgh – College of Art, attaining a BA Honours degree in Graphic Design, and has won a clutch of SND Malofiej awards.
