Information Design



The term 'information design' emerged as a multidisciplinary area of study in the 1970s. There had been a NATO-sponsored conference at Het Vennebos in The Netherlands, and its proceedings were published by John Wiley under the title ‘Information Design’ in 1979. Quoting the definition of the Information Design Association: "...the discipline applies processes of design to the communication of information (its content and language as well as its form). It was intended to be a counterpoint to the corporate identity and glitzy graphics that seemed to take over graphic design in the 80s."

Today, the field of Information Design is often connected with data visualization, information architecture, and visual journalism, as the main focus of these disciplines is on displaying information effectively. As an Information designer, I can actively research or refine data related to any kind of topic: I often design not only a bespoke container but also the content. Combining data journalism techniques and storytelling, I craft compelling visual stories with the most appropriate medium. I can support researchers, journalists, scientists, etc. in extracting and organizing data (text, images, charts, numbers, maps, graphs, sound) for digital, printed, or interactive outputs.
