Gestalten.tv: Jonathan Corum—For Your Information

Jonathan Corum, the graphics editor for Science at the New York Times, designs print and interactive graphics with a decisive focus on clarity, simplicity, and elegance, translating detailed data into something widely understood.

Last fall, we hosted a two-day workshop with this true master where we learned more about the understated fundamentals of information design. In this video, Corum explains how he integrates “art and annotation” to create a unified visual story and tell us how the NYT developed a serious comic to answer the question: “What is the Higgs?”

For greater insight into Corum’s work, pick up a copy of A Life in Illustration, in which he is extensively profiled, as well as our books on information design including Data Flow 2, and Visual Storytelling.

Forthcoming Gestalten Workshop in March!

We proudly present our first workshop of the year with Commercial Type’s Christian Schwartz, one of the most prolific American type designers today. A founder of the award-winning studio Schwartzco, Schwartz specializes in customizing typefaces for corporate identities and publications. His celebrated fonts, including the popular Farnham, Neutraface, Bosch and Deutsche Bahn (both designed with Erik Spiekermann), have garnered him praise and awards, including the prestigious Prix Charles Peignot, D&AD, and German Design Award.

In this two-day hands-on workshop, participants will work on their own typeface in progress, and under the guidance of Christian Schwartz, evaluate the typeface and learn how to take it to completion. Limited Space Available: Register here.

Video: Winkreative Design Stories
A Global View on Branding, Design and Publishing

We invite you to experience the Winkreative Design Stories and take a visual journey through the history of this global design agency, founded by Tyler Brûlé in 1998. Highlighting projects from successfully relaunching Swiss International Air Lines to building a country brand for Thailand, the book spans continents and a roster of premium clients, including Hermès, Lexus, Louis Vuitton, Persol, Union Pearson Express and Mini.

Divided into the core themes of Charm, Craft, Intelligence, Clarity and Storytelling, each chapter of the book showcases a set of projects sharing that characteristic, alongside short case studies, which offer insight into the thinking and skill behind Winkreative’s work, revealing the culture of the agency itself.

The book is now available.



On Gestalten.tv: Lotta Kühlhorn—Home Swede Home


From whom should we learn how to design elegant patterns if not from a Swede? We proudly presents Lotta Kühlhorn’s practical handbook Designing Patterns, explaining the ins & outs of how to design patterns—for everything from wallpaper to tea services, and comes with a complete CD with templates for your experimentation.

With an impressive thoroughness, Kühlhorn shows us how to use everyday situations as a source of inspiration for creating stunning patterns and explores colors, forms, and the best ways to combine them. And you, sometimes without knowing it, have probably already come across Kühlhorn’s design.

Browse the book in German and English versions.
