Kevin Quealy As graphic editor at The New York Times, Kevin Quealy provides readers with a visual way to understand the news. He leads a team of cartographers, illustrators, researchers and developers who shape and deliver information by reporting, writing, designing, drawing and programming information graphics for both the printed newspaper and nytimes.com. Over time, the graphics have evolved from simple maps and charts to more complex visualizations, but the goal of authoritative, accurate journalism has remained the same. The New York Times Graphic Department received a 2010 National Design Award in Communication Design from the Cooper-Hewitt/Smithsonian Institution. Quealy's portfolio covers a wide range of topics, including visualizations of the voting shifts in the 2010 House elections and Netflix rental patterns by zip code.
