We live in a golden age of data visualization, in which designers are responding to the information overload of our digital era with astonishing feats of visual thinking. Using a wide variety of techniques, they transform complex ideas into clear, engaging, and memorable infographics. In recent years, books and websites have been collecting the field s best. While stimulating, these finished projects offer little insight into how visual solutions were reached, making them of limited use to designers wanting to produce work of their own. In Infographic Designers Sketchbooks, more than fifty of the world s leading graphic designers and illustrators open up their private sketchbooks to offer a rare glimpse of their creative processes. Emphasizing idea-generating methods, from doodles and drawings to three-dimensional and digital mock-ups, this revelatory collection is the first to go inside designers studios to reveal the art and craft behind infographic design.
  • Follow-up to our bestselling
  • Typography Sketchbooks
  • First publication to show the drawings and sketches from the process stage of creating infographics, the design profession s fastest-growing practice
  • Features 73 case studies that showcase the broad variety of work being created for every medium and platform by the world's leading information designers, including Deborah Adler, Laura Cattaneo, Hyperakt, MGMT., and Massimo Vignelli


Steven Heller is cochair of the MFA Design Department at the School of Visual Arts and the author of many books on graphic design, including Shadow Type and Typography Sketchbooks.

Rick Landers is founding partner and co creative director of graphic design studio Landers Miller Design.
