A collaborative and active teaching approach anchored in info design

As an information designer, visuals–such as colors, shapes, and graphic elements–play a key role in both my teaching prep and my classes as they help me think, uncover connections, see hidden parts in a story, and work more collaboratively with

Don’t blame technology for poor information design

Many people new to design believe that technology occupies a big role and working with professional software is essential to create effective results. Moreover, many think that not knowing how to work with the appropriate software is the main difference

Design pillars: understanding, intention, consistency

Design education provides the theoretical foundation to understand why a design solution can be effective and why another solution is most likely to be misleading. This knowledge helps designers use design principles and visual skills with intention and in a

Event: Understanding and Designing for People

How can you help people understand something complex if you don’t understand people first? Rather than rely on intuition or assumptions, information designers need evidence gathered from real people about how they think, feel, and behave in order to inform

Implications of dual coding for information design

As part of a project I am collaborating on, I recently learned about dual coding theory which was introduced by Allan Paivio in the 1970s. In short, dual coding is a cognitive psychology theory that argues that the use of visuals and
