Thoughts on designing information

As a spin-off of their successful Shapeshifter annual lecture series, Brussels designers and educators Inge Gobert and Johan Van Looveren have just published thoughts on designing information with Lars Mueller Publishers, including some thoughts by myself. 


Here is the blurb: This book presents the reflections of 16 designers of international renown, all of whom are active in the broad field of information design: interactive, editorial and environmental design, data visualization, wayfinding, typography, cartography, etc. Through interviews, Inge Gobert and Johan Van Looveren provide insight into the field of information design, its working methods, possibilities and limitations, attitudes, dreams and frustrations. Special emphasis is placed on how future information designers can be effectively prepared to work in a world where the nature of information is constantly changing.
