Thoughts on Designing Information
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.
