Workshop with The New York Times’ Jonathan Corum

Date: November 4–5, 2013
Time: 10:00–19:00
Location: Gestalten Space
Language: English


Our upcoming two-day workshop with Jonathan Corum will explore the fundamentals of information design through the process of sketching, designing, building, and refining news graphics.

Jonathan Corum is the science graphics editor at The New York Times. As a member of the Times graphics desk, he designs print and interactive graphics with a focus on clarity, simplicity and elegance.

The workshop will explore the fundamentals of information design through the process of sketching, designing, building, and refining news graphics. Topics will include research and data gathering, iterative sketching, visual storytelling, data visualization, illustration, and graphic design.

We will practice simplifying, translating, and visually communicating complex information to readers who might be busy or easily distracted. We will discuss print and interactive graphics, and participants will be encouraged to produce a final print graphic.

The workshop will include an overview of several programming tools, including Python, pandas and d3, but no programming will be required.

This is primarily a design workshop, but editors or journalists with an interest in information graphics are also welcome. If you are interested in information design or visual journalism, or would like a better idea of how the Times graphics desk works, please join us in Berlin!

Requirements: Participants should bring their own laptop with Adobe Illustrator installed. Adobe Photoshop is recommended but not required. If you normally draw with a mouse or tablet, please bring that as well.

They are Dandies: The Return of the Elegant Gentlemen

October is our month to honor the men who have style. In a world of uniformity, these cultivated gentlemen retain their independence over the way they dress and live. I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman with photographs by Rose Callahan and texts by Nathaniel “Natty” Adams documents the lives of 57 protagonists of contemporary dandyism with a keen yet empathic eye. This book has been internationally celebrated and launched at Gieves & Hawkes in London, Cifonelli and Très Honoré in Paris, and Bergdorf Goodman in New York.

Gestalten.tv flew to Brighton, London, and New York to meet with Natty and Rose, as well as a few of the exquisite modern gentlemen featured in the book, to learn about their styles, attitudes, and philosophies. Together, they help us to explore contemporary dandyism as a rebellious attitude and obsessive calling that can be cultivated on any budget.

From I am Dandy: Mr Michael A. Salerno: “Do you imagine the rubbish being produced today will even survive long enough to become ‘vintage’ for the generations to come? There was a time, before the days of Walmart, before department stores, when clothing was looked at as an investment; and you treated your possessions with respect. It is my hope that when I’m gone, my sons will be arguing over who gets to keep my clothes.”
