About Kurzgesagt

Kurzgesagt (German for „in a nutshell“) is a Munich based youtube channel and design studio with a distinctive perspective on design, color and story telling.

Founded in 2013 the studio engages in information design projects of all kinds. We are convinced that good things take time, care and precision. In an age of information overload we try to produce content that has value and that people actually notice and remember. There is no boring topic, you just have to tell a good story. Say Hello.

Kurzgesagt YouTube Channel

The basis for our existence is our Youtube channel. Kurzgesagt started as a passion project that we worked on at night and on the weekend and turned into our full time job. We use it to explore what is possible with videos that explain things, sharing our excitement about this universe with as many people as possible.
