Summary "Information Design shows designers in all fields - from user-interface design to architecture and engineering - how to design complex data and information for meaning, relevance, and clarity. Written by a worldwide authority on the visualization of complex information, this full-color, heavily illustrated guide provides real-life problems and examples as well as hypothetical and historical examples, demonstrating the conceptual and pragmatic aspects of human factors-driven information design. Both successful and failed design examples are included to help readers understand the principles under discussion."
"Single source guide to information design shows how to clarify, simplify (without dumbing down), and make complex data and information accessible. Emphasizes principles and issues so readers can apply learned concepts to their own projects."
