Kiss Me I'm Polish LLC

Norton Sociology


W.W. Norton & Company is the oldest and largest employee-owned publishing house in the U.S., and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with their college textbook department on a variety of incredibly inspiring projects. One of those collaborations has just been published, and is hitting campuses across the country as we write this case study.

The 8th edition of Introduction to Sociology features a series of 20 full-page information graphics designed by Kiss Me I’m Polish, covering a vast array of topics such as internet connectivity, incarceration rates, and gender empowerment. As an added bonus, a few our initial concepts for a timeline of key sociological works, ultimately led to the design of the book’s cover, the accompanying poster, and a set of promotional buttons featuring prominent sociologists. The poster and cover are, respectively, text and non-text representations of a conceptual map delineating all of the topics and sociologists featured in the textbook. You can request a free copy of the poster here.

Kiss Me I'm Polish makes every project that they do with us better than I could have imagined. Not only do they create clever infographics, elegant book designs, and witty animations, but they do the work with intelligence, patience, and charm. I can't praise Agnieszka and her team high enough. They're amazing.”
