To promote its forthcoming book Turning the Pages (pre-order at Amazon), book publisher Gestalten (also known from the Data Flow series) recently released a short documentary video podcast featuring two members of the New York Times Graphics Department: Steven Duenes and Archie Tse. The movie is a bit superficial on content, but interesting nonetheless.

Watch the movie below or at the original website.

I will refrain from commenting in order to not sound like a gaga, awestruck, blathering fan. :)

Yeah, same here. Had no idea that so much goes on behind the scenes.

I enjoyed this video, I find it interesting that the journalists themselves come up with & refer their own ideas to the infographic team.

Nice video. The NYTimes often does creative and wonderful interactive graphics. I'm pleased they stated clearly that they choose clarity over aesthetics, but that clarity creates its own aesthetic.

I like what was stated above using visualization to grab the attention of readers, which then leads further into the details of the story. Crisp, sharp visualization really is worth a 1000 words!

I like what they stated about using visualization to grab the readers attention, which is then followed by story details. Guess a picture is really worth a 1000 words!

I really like that video. I think it is good that people see how much work and thought is built into something looking simple.
