The New York Times has hired Pablo Robles to be a visual journalist in Soeul, South Korea.

He will start next week.

Robles has been working in the Bloomberg News Hong Kong office, where he was a creative force behind interactive graphics and maps on Brazil’s rainforests, the tourist ecosystem of Mount Everest and the revival of trains in Europe.

He is also a strong illustrator and print graphics designer, as seen in his previous work for The South China Morning Post and La Nación, in Costa Rica.

In 2019, he developed multiple visual stories covering the Hong Kong Protests, projects that later won gold medals at Malofiej, Webby Awards, Sigma Delta Chi Award, ADG Laus 2020 and Online Journalism Awards, among others. He was also able to work on one of the first global graphic coverages related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

His work has been recognized with more than 120 different awards including Malofiej, SND, Sigma, Webby Awards and Information is Beautiful Awards.
