    Gavin Potenza: IEEE Future Tech (detail)

Illustration: Gavin Potenza is infiltrating your brain (and that's a good thing)

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Infographics regularly achieve the seemingly impossible feat of educating people about obscure and wonderful things while not actually giving away their educational intent, and for that we have such innovative types as Gavin Potenza to thank. Creating informative and yet beautiful illustrations from his shared studio space in an old pencil factory in Brooklyn, Gavin’s consistently lovely colour combinations coupled with the geometric quality of his drawings have led to him being championed across the board through digital and print media outlets. And all this from somebody who spends his days finding new visually stimulating methods of illuminating previously unused corners of our brains without letting us realise how much cool stuff we’re learning! What a nice man.
