Generative Gestaltung

Freitag, März 5th, 2010

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!

Data Flow

Donnerstag, September 18th, 2008

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.

Feature in Data Flow

Dienstag, August 5th, 2008

Coming in September 2008, the book Data Flow by Die Gestalten Verlag contains an extended feature of our work. The Similar Diversity graphic is printed on a spread, along with the caption and an descriptive text.

Details on the book can be found on the webpage of Die Gestalten Verlag. I’m a big fan of the cover design already and I’m looking forward to the other projects featured in the book. The previews look amazing.
