Episode 32 of the Neon Moiré Show is with Dennis Elbers, founder, and curator of Graphic Matters. The design festival, founded in 2008, shows every two years how designers shape and influence our perspective on current issues that matter.
In this episode, recorded during the seventh edition of Graphic Matters, Thomas Dahm talks with Dennis Elbers about finding and exploring the richness of this year's festival theme: Information Superpower. The importance of learning visual literacy at a young age. What it takes to create a good information graphic, and how to read a data visualization without missing all intentions put in the image.
