Fritz Kahn, Grandfather of Information Design

Fritz Kahn, Grandfather of Information Design

Dr. Fritz Kahn (1888–1968) was a Berlin based gynaecologist and popular science writer who visualized the structure and function of the human body in a very unique way. His magnum opus “Das Leben des Menschen” (The Life of Man, 1922–1931) fascinated laymen as well as scientists with its visual analogies and metaphors and their unusually expressive and contemporary design.

Thilo von Debschitz studied Communication Design, before working as an Art Director for renowned international advertising and creative companies.
