Ole Häntzschel is an independent graphic-designer, specialized in illustrative maps and infographics.

His job is to communicate complex data, explain complicated matter in a descriptive way, and implicate the reader to the subject through an introductory approach.

For him it is important that next to the informative, also the aesthetic layer persuades.
