Information design must be:
-not for persuasion, but presentation
-informing the traveler
-explaining how things work. ex. ipod diagram
-guidebook, bar chart, diagram
- AIGA link: http://www.aiga.org/content.cfm/complexity-plus-interdisciplinarity-plus-experiment
- ministryoftype.co.uk/words/category: used only type to show how over 2 mill. people are employed by government, interesting space as a whole.
- ministry of type: map using shape and type
- catalogtree.net: shows some process and diagramming complex information, laying it out in a way that is easy to understand, without scientific information behind it.
how do we approach information design projects?
-gather data: what are all the possibilities
-organizing categorizing the data
-create a system/identity (overall style, symbol system, color key)
-what form does it take?
questions to consider:
what do they know, what to the need to know?
how do they typically get their information?
