1. Francesco Franchi is the art director for IL-Intelligence in Lifestyle, the monthly magazine of Il Sole 24 ORE, Italy’s leading financial daily. "Embracing new languages in journalism," Franchi is a true master of combining representation and interpretation, creating a visual form that is as graphic as it is narrative, as entertaining as it is informative. His work has been awarded on numerous occasions, including the European Design Awards and at the renowned Malofiej conference. Gestalten.tv met with him last summer in Berlin to talk about his influences, innovative storytelling and non-linear reading in today's editorial design. Furthermore you will find an extensive printed interview with the Italian designer in "Visual Storytelling: Inspiring a New Visual Language".

  2. The Berlin-based artist Sarah Illenberger has developed a very unique and strong visual language, conveying even the most abstract and complex content into vivid, humorous, and concise visual forms without ever forcing a meaning on them. For her meticulously-crafted work—including commissions for Vanity Fair, Time, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Wallpaper*, and Nike—she mostly uses simple materials and household items such as paper, food, textiles, and wood.  Learn more about how Sarah Illenberger's analog handicraft and creative eye reveal the true essence of things through her first Gestalten-published monograph and the latest Gestalten.tv Interview, which took place in her studio in Berlin.

  3. Title: More than the sum of its parts (published 21 Sep 2009)

    Content is King, and Kings can be demanding. Especially if they have to edit and design elaborate visual substance for magazines and books while juggling projects whether it be creating movie posters, typography, photography and corporate identity or logo design. Berlin-based designer and artful thinker Mario Lombardo has managed to do exactly this, but exceptionally, for over a decade now. Having established a reputation as one of Germany’s leading designers and editors, Mario is difficult to nail down but easy to rely upon when it comes to everything visual that needs a makeover or creation from scratch. Watch for yourself, to see how this designer extraordinaire works and so graciously pulls another rabbit out of his hat.
