As KLUB7, Dani Daphne, Diskorobot, Mike Okay, Kid Cash, Lowskii, and Otto Baum have made a name for themselves with their street art as well as the murals, customizations, and illustrations which they create on various surfaces. Since its inception over 10 years ago, the Berlin-based collective has progressively and continuously expanded its oeuvre. In the wake of their exhibition opening at Gestalten Space, Gestalten.tv met them to discuss the joy of spontaneous artistic interactions and the evolution of graffiti.
Although the way we read may change, our passion for the written word is left unaffected by format. Who would know better than NYC-based editor, writer, and consultant Andrew Losowksy, whom we met at the offices of The Huffington Post, where he is Books Editor. Losowksy has conceived and contributed to numerous books, including Gestalten's Turning Pages and Visual Storytelling, as well as We Love Magazines and We Make Magazines. In our Gestalten.tv feature, Losowsky talks about the various methods of storytelling in the digital age and why hitting the right note on the web doesn't always translate into a compelling print product (and vice versa).
In today’s world where information is practically unlimited, we are faced with the fundamental challenge of how to extract, interpret, and create meaning out of the data and information overload. A new generation of designers are tackling the challenge head on and using graphic design, infographics, illustration, and photography to convey information in the most elegant, entertaining, and informative way.
Gestalten has always been passionately following and documenting the evolution of visual storytelling through our and Data Flow and recent Visual Storytelling books and now it's in the form of an exhibition. The “Small Stories Bigger Picture” exhibition at the Museum of the Image (MOTI), curated by Gestalten’s Sven Ehmann and Graphic Design Festival Breda curator Dennis Elbers, reveals how image-makers create and share visual stories from various roles and perspectives—as poets, journalists, researches and agitators.
Gestalten.tv was recently in Breda, Netherlands to interview the curators and several of the designers—Catalogtree, Peter Orntoft, Floris Kaays, and Vahram Muratyam—in the widely successful exhibition, on show until December 9th.
