Illustrator, artist, and author, Christoph Niemann‘s work has appeared on the covers of The New Yorker, WIRED and The New York Times Magazine and has won awards from AIGA, the Art Directors Club and The Lead Awards. His corporate clients include Google, St. Moritz, LAMY, and The Museum of Modern Art. He is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale.
He has drawn live from the Venice Art Biennale, the Olympic Games in London, and he has sketched the New York City Marathon — while actually running it. He created The New Yorker’s first Augmented Reality Cover as well as a hand drawn 360 degree VR animation for the magazine’s US Open issue.
Niemann is the author of many books, including the monograph “Sunday Sketching”, WORDS and “Souvenir”, a visual dictionary for children. With Jon Huang he created the kids’ apps PETTING ZOO and CHOMP. In 2010, he was inducted into the Art Directors Club Hall Of Fame. His work is subject of an episode of Abstract, a new original NETFLIX series.
