About

Kurzgesagt – German for „In a nutshell“ is a Munich-based YouTube channel and design studio with a unique perspective on design, color and storytelling. We engage in information design projects of all kind, but are best known for our distinctive animation videos. We want our work to raise awareness for topics from the fields of science, space, technology, biology, history and philosophy. Our goal is to inspire people to learn – and we believe humor and a good story to tell are just as important as straight facts.

Team

Our in-house team consists of researchers, writers, designers, animators and producers. On top of that we collaborate with a wide network of experts, journalists, voice actors and sound designers.

  • Can I translate your videos into another language or dubb them?

    Unfortunately, no. We are thinking about providing our content in many different languages. Given the quantity of videos and amount of languages, this is a long process.

    No, you can not. You may, however, use the embedded youtube link which refers to our channel on your website/facebookpage, Our videos always have to be credited with „courtesy of kurzgesagt.org"

    We are taking every violation of copyright very seriously.
