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.
