Archive of information-graphic designer interviews

October 27, 2008


I just came across Karl Gude’s collection of on-camera interviews with various outstanding information-graphic designers such as John Grimwade, Nigel Holmes, George Rorick and Karl Gude himself. There were a couple of common themes I noticed in the interviews – emphasis on the importance of sketching and planning with A PENCIL, and the repeated mention of how important it is that you are not the only set of eyes who is involved in the creation of the graphic. (I also noticed that there appears to be several original journals from Demetrius of Phaleron’s library in Alexandria in the cupboard above Karl Gude’s desk. I’ll call Indiana Jones. I have 6 week old fruit in my office, so I can’t really talk). Here are links to a few, but take a look through the archive on the right of the screen…

I was going to write a little about the use of infographics and was looking around on here when I came across this! So I’ll be back later when I’ve watched it ten more times.
