Information designers, editors, illustrators, animators, and journalists came together at Gestalten Space in Berlin on July 2nd and 3rd for a two-day “Infographic Thinking” workshop, the latest in a series of workshops hosted by Gestalten. Francesco Franchi, one of the masters of information design and the much-awarded art director of IL – Intelligence in Lifestyle, led the workshop and guided the attendees through the left-and-right-brained process of interpreting, contextualizing, and visually representing information — a process which is as much journalism and storytelling as it is design. The attendees learned by doing, working in groups to produce insightful and informative visual content of their own, with Franchi’s invaluable expertise at their disposal.

Gestalten workshop went to Asia! This October, we partnered up with Singapore's Methodology to host a two-day “Infographic Thinking” workshop with award-winning designer Francesco Franchi. Embracing new languages in journalism, Francesco 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.
