Monday 7 April: Crossing boundaries in information design
Session 4Presenting with Maria da Gandra
Informform – a platform and publication series
We will discuss the benefits and the opportunities created through the platform and publication series titled InformForm. InformForm examines how we generate, understand, organise and give shape to data and information. It has launched annual student live briefs since 2012.
InformForm is a guide for students, as well as a reference for tutors. It is to be used alongside other relevant literature, journals and online resources. It encourages reflective methods of understanding and process in a learning (academic) environment. Information design is a field of study as well as a vocation. For it to be of reference it needs to be knowledge driven, useful and accessible to a wide user range, especially in today’s overwhelming ocean of information.
