The visualization of data is the graphic designer's core business. For illustrator, graphic designer and art director Christoph Niemann – man behind the überpopular blog for The New York Times and numerous The New Yorker covers – it's daily business.

Find out how Christoph Niemann tackles some of today's trickiest dilemmas – what does one do with that bottom arm while spooning? – in exactly the kind of humorous off-color ways that make him an ace in our latest Gestalten.tv interview.

As the master of visual reduction, Niemann’s work is featured in Data Flow 2, Gestalten’s upcoming book on information graphics.
