ISOTYPES
WHAT ARE ISOTYPES ?
ISOTYPE (International
System of TYpographic Picture
Education) - a system for
organising and displaying
information and statistics
using pictures. The system
was initiated by
Otto Neurath
in the 1920s.
Marie Neurath,
who married Otto in 1941,
was responsible for analysing
the raw data and putting it
into picture form, ready for
production.
Gerd Arntz, a â
€˜socially committed artistâ
€™ was responsible for the
final images and therefore
Isotype’s recognisable
style.
