JAN SCHWOCHOW NEW INFOGRAPHIC BOOK
»IN GRAPHICS / IN GRAFIKEN«
A magazine for visual people.
A picture says more than a thousand words. That is why, on december 18th, 2010, Golden Section Graphics is publishing an independent magazine titled »IN GRAPHICS«. It is released twice a year and on 92 pages it deals with challenging topics from politics and economics to culture and entertainment—solely through graphics.
Jan Schwochow, the chief editor and publisher of »IN GRAPHICS«, manager of Golden Section Graphics and former head of the STERN infographics department, had the idea for a magazine that consist only of graphics. A magazine for visual people came into existence without long texts and large picture galleries. It is based on the experience of the team at Golden Section Graphics, who get worldwide attention with their produced work for renowned media like Die ZEIT, the New York Times Magazine or GEO on a regular basis.
Infographics require not only journalistic intuition but also a lot of time and patience. The editors of »IN GRAPHICS« deliberately take that time to create interesting and fascinating content and show a lot of love for details. Also, current topics like Hartz IV (the German unemployment benefits), piracy off the coast of Somalia, German large scale projects like Stuttgart 21 or the overfishing of tuna in the Mediterranean Sea are shown in a new perspective. Furthermore, this first edition of the magazine includes artworks by outstanding artists Christoph Niemann and Jonathan Meese as guest contributors. »IN GRAPHICS« is released bilingually, in German and in English, and is available for €22 (without shipping, equals $29).
