About the author
   Ksenia Pogorelova graduated in information design from FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences in Graz, Austria. She has a special passion for clear, content-driven solutions that combine understandability with an aesthetic appeal. Born in Moscow, Russia, she started her career as a journalist, studying journalism at Moscow State University and writing for one of the main daily newspapers in Russia.
   During her study she applied for an exchange semester at FH Joanneum in Graz, Austria and was so fascinated by the neighbouring field of design that she decided to apply for studying a bachelor’s in Information Design as well. Starting as a graphic designer, she developed a passion for information and icon design.
   Her bachelor thesis “Looks of understanding. Visual appeal of information graphics”, mentored by Konrad Baumann, was presented in February 2013 and awarded with an excellent grade.
   Ksenia Pogorelova is currently employed as an information designer at Zukunftsinstitut Österreich (www.zukunftsinstitut.at), an Austrian think tank dedicated to trend research. Her interest in both journalistic analysis and clear design solutions allow her to transform complex data into understandable as well as aesthetic graphics.
