“Who Knew” Magazine: Illustrating Difficult Ideas

August 22nd, 2007 by Jerome Dahdah

Who Knew
Who Knew is a design magazine taking on “difficult content” – ideas and issues that are commonly misunderstood and censored. Every 3 months, students graphically communicate texts considered complex, confusing and/or controversial – things that make us go, “Who knew?”. Who Knew studies the interpretive power of graphics and typography in the access, efficiency and transparency of information.

A few example questions that are discussed:

  • Should work be abolished?
  • Is your doctor killing you?
  • Can a designer do good?
  • Are you beautiful enough to survive?

All-in-all a great read for us “intellectual designers”. ;)
