A journey from print to personal messaging...

What is Information Design? (15Mb PDF)

You may have missed the Information Design exhibition at St Bride's Library earlier this year, but the explanatory panels are now available to dowload. Here they are as a (whopping great 15meg) PDF document.

The panels offer overviews of:

Gutenberg - print comes of age

Robert Estienne - typography comes of age

Andreas Vesalius - modern anatomy

William Playfair - national statistics

Isotype - pictorial statistics

Henry Beck - non-geographical map

Jock Kinnear and Margaret Calvert - systematic road signing

Spencer, Reynolds and Coe - legibility research

Forms design research - helpful forms

Apple - birth of an interface

Text and instant messaging - making it personal
