Kurzgesagt (German for „in a nutshell“) is a Munich based youtube channel and design studio with a distinctive perspective on design and animation within the fields of education, science and commerce.

Founded in 2013 the studio engages in information design projects of all kinds. We love science, minimalism, colors and music. But most of all combining them to tell stories.
