Information Graphics

Several Kiss Me I’m Polish projects are featured in a new graphic design book titled, “Information Graphics.” This 480 page tome offers essays, projects, and a large selection of examples – some as old as cave paintings – that explore the methods of visual communication. It’s a veritable treasure trove of data eye candy.

NY Times on Five Borough Farms

New York Times food columnist, Mark Bittman, commended the Design Trust’s Five Borough Farm project and policy fellow Nevin Cohen in his article “At Thanksgiving, No Turkeys Here.” The article lists the things, people, and organizations that give Bittman hope for the future of sustainable farming and American food – even amid the “…days when it seems – both in and out of the food world – that Everything Is Going Wrong.”

Keep an eye out for updates on the Five Borough Farm project as we continue our work with them on the publication and website design for all their findings.

Check out the NY Time’s article to find out what else Mark Bittman is thankful for.
