The Berlin-based design studio Golden Section Graphics recently released their second edition of In Graphics. The magazine is published twice per year as a bilingual edition in English and German. The first issue won 10 national and international design prizes, including a bronze award from the ADC Germany and a gold European Design Award in the magazine category.
The cover story explores visually the events around 9/11. From 3D renderings of the plane crashes to a scatterplot comparing casualties of terrorist attacks to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Another big feature shows everything you need to know about the Berlin Wall as its’ 50 anniversary comes up in August 2011. The rest of the 90 pages strong magazine is filled with beautifully crafted information graphics explaining the situation in Fukushima, Antarctica, Marathons, Woman Football, Royal Weddings and more. Contributions by illustrator Patrick They, artist Konstantin Voit, and designer and author David McCandless complement the original content by the Golden Section Graphics team.
The second edition of In Graphics is once again an extremely well put together piece of information design. Beside the quality of the works inside, it’s also a joy to feel the texture of the paper, the well crafted binding and the thickness of the magazine — Lovely!
