About Texture

Texture is an online resource for people who want to learn about the background to major news topics. In an age of relentless news coverage, social media and smart phones, we are accustomed to minute by minute updates on the stories of the day.
But while necessary, focusing on the particular of a topic means our understanding of its underlying factors isn't always so strong.

Texture aims to address this imbalance by providing a comprehensive overview of the topics that dominate the headlines. We do this by analysing the past and present of any given topic. We also comment on how it might look in the future. In turn, we aim to give the news what it often lacks – context.
