We art directed, designed, and developed this infographics piece for Canal Isabel II, the company in charge of Madrid’s water supply.
This piece was part of a six minute video developed by different studios and produced by lalivingston. Our part explains the process cycle water goes through in La Comunidad de Madrid, from collection through to purification.

My role: design and direction
Freeband Communication and IIPIC share a vision of the future: a world in which information and communication technology render one's surroundings into a thinking and caring environment.
The results of the Freeband Communication research program should be visualized in a compelling film. I approached the material using infographics to explain the vast quantities of data. To create a relationship with the continuing technology the film starts with a minimalist introduction in a narrow color spectrum and gradually transitioned to an abundant, multicolored world.

The Visualized Conference, which just took place in New York last week, explored the new era of visual communication at the intersection of complex knowledge, visual storytelling and aesthetic design. Having become a proud sponsor of this conference, Gestalten.tv had the great opportunity to interview the speakers live and report the conference on-site. Including Sven Ehmann, our creative director, all the speakers were selected creative leaders as well as information enthusiastics. They inspired us on combining both creative and analytical sides of the brain while designing, presenting and interacting with data. In this video, we have interviewed: Amber Case, Sha Hwang, Peter Crnokrak, Michael Migurski, Benjamin Wiederkehr and Kim Rees.
Visual Families visualizes our penchant for sorting in playful and entertaining ways. The book presents lighthearted yet compelling work by illustrators, designers, and the creators of infographics that visually structures the stuff of our daily lives. In very different ways, all of the examples tell interesting stories with subjects that might otherwise be boring and dry and show how enjoyable arranging things can be.
