Around the World – The Atlas for Today

Postman surprise! We just received our copy of Gestalten’s Around the World. We’re very happy to be featured in their contemporary Atlas, next to so many other, beautiful projects. Seriously one of the most exceptional books in the last years, which provides incredible depth on various topics. Shouldn’t be missing on any graphic designer’s and data visualisation artists’ library!

Illuminating Data at TCNJ Gallery

Similar Diversity was exhibited in New Jersey as part of the exhibition Illuminating Data: Visualizing the Information that Moves Our World earlier this year. Emily Croll, the director of the TCNJ, just sent me some photos, as we have not been able to be there in person. Thanks! Looked great in the space there.

Generative Gestaltung

It’s been a while, but I just opened the book “Generative Gestaltung” by Hartmut Bohnacker, Benedikt Groß, Julia Laub and Claudius Lazzeroni again. Shame on me that I didn’t post this earlier. It is absolutely amazing and a must for everyone working in the area of graphic design. It contains well-selected examples of generated graphics and very useful examples. Plus, the design of the book itself is outstanding. But the best thing is, it features Similar Diversity on 2 pages!

Information Design Handbook feature

Information Design Handbook - CoverMore than 35 design teams from all around the world are featured in this new publication titled Information Design Handbook, including us! It has just been published by RotoVision and we’re waiting eagerly for a copy. Thanks to the authors Jennifer and Ken Visocky O’Grady for the feature.
The book is also available at F+W Publications / HOW Book in North America or on amazon.

Data Flow

As announced in the previous post, the book Data Flow has been published now! They printed our work in the section “Datanets” on a whole spread, which is great because you can see all the tiny details. It’s a great book with fabulous works, for example Stefan Sagmeister’s and Ben Cohen’s Move Our Money, an inflateable data visualisation of military budgets, or the great World Mapper – and so many I haven’t seen yet. On the page following ours is the work of Felix Heinen, which we like a lot. It’s a book well worth studying. Here are some impressions:

Again, here’s the link if you want to order it.
