Have you ever wondered about the creative mind behind the illustrations that grace the cover of The New Yorker? Who is this vector art genius that continues to push out such iconic work? What is his story? Christoph Niemann is an illustrator and graphic designer whose work has frequently appeared on the cover of The New Yorker, Newsweek, Wired, Atlantic Monthly, the NY Times, and American Illustration. He has been the soul creator for Abstract Sundays, a NY Times blog, since 2008. Although Niemann is an AIGA award winner and author of several children’s books, he has a few hilarious confessions to make about his work ethics, his life with the editors, his version of the periodic table, and many other amusing points of view. Christoph Niemann continues to create simple, yet meaningful imagery that many can relate to, New Yorker or not.
