Visual Families

Graphic Storytelling in Design and Illustration
Posted by Angie—09/2014

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.

A video production by Jan Schöttler for Gestalten.
