Will Burtin: neglected giant of information design

I learned about Will Burtin’s work through R. Roger Remington and Fripp’s book a few years ago, but it was love at first sight. The combination of Burtin’s thinking process, ingenuity and direct relevance to what today we referred to as

Visual reasoning through information design

The visual communication of complex or less known topics (e.g. science, medicine, mathematics) in simpler and clearer ways appeals to users and readers’ visual reasoning. Visual reasoning is the process of both analysing information presented in visual form (e.g. pictures, diagrams, drawings) and solving problems

Improve your info management & conceptual design skills – Help test MapCI Cards!

I started my information design practice in the editorial world creating diagrams, information graphics, and information panels. In this context, I frequently encountered unintelligible and cluttered information design outputs: intended messages were not clearly communicated or were hard to understand. These ineffective outputs had major

Turning Data Into Diagrams, An Exhibition

Today I visited the “Beautiful Science: Picturing Data, Inspiring Insight” exhibition at the British Library. The small exhibition explores how scientific information from different areas, including health, weather forecast and human evolution, has been visualised throughout the years. It also

Visualisations & the Process of Abstraction

When information is visualised it can take many forms from diagrams, maps, and information graphics to PPT presentations and wayfinding systems, to name a few. Any of those visualisations can support the processes of learning, teaching, managing information and communication,

First International Workshop on Schematic Mapping

Next April will take place the first 2-day Schematic Mapping Workshop held at the University of Essex. The aim of the workshop is to investigate how people use diagrammatic transport maps to navigate around cities, and to gain insights on

Diagramming/Mapping (complex) information

In the current information age there is a boom for visualising data, there is no doubt about that. Almost everything which is produced, it is visualised. Infographics, information design, diagrammatic representations, diagramming, data visualisation, mapping, these terms have become commonplace
