“Elliot Bentley is part of a new breed of journalist-cum-coder” — The Guardian
Hi. I like journalism, coding, design, data, biology, games, music, Japan and cats, especially when combined. Currently, I work as a Graphics Editor for The Wall Street Journal developing interactive graphics and newsroom tools.
I previously worked for S&S Media as an editor of technical publications JAXenter.com and Web & PHP Magazine. I was also part of student newspaper The Courier's award-winning editorial team while at Newcastle University.
In my spare time I run a meetup called Journocoders and work on things such as oTranscribe, an open source web app. My previous side projects have included Hype Machine-listed music blog Quiff Pro Fro.
At the Wall Street Journal, I have been producing (among other things) interactive graphics. Here are a few of my favourites.
