Otto Steininger for The New Yorker

Otto had a brilliant idea while out navigating the wintery streets of NYC with his daughter in her stroller. Inspired by his not so unique predicament in what some may call the coldest place on Earth, he had a thought. Why not enlist all of those strollers to become mini-snow plows? He creatively illustrated his unique idea and it happily landed on the cover of The New Yorker! Kudos, Otto!

Otto Steininger and Information Design

Infographics is a hot topic right now and award winning illustrator, Otto Steininger, is ready to get down and dirty bringing creative solutions to an impressive list of clients. Below is just a smidgen of recently completed projects that shows how he puts his own creative twist on data visualization (aka data viz) covering a wide range of often complex subject matter.

“The challenge is to deliver a lot of information within a limited amount of space in an easy-to-read and fun way.” Currently he is working on a flow chart that visualizes the tangled web of Lance Armstrong including his allies, sponsors and adversaries. “This is easily the most complicated infographic I’ve ever worked on, but also one of the most fun because of the unprecedented level of design and information challenges,” says Otto.
