Welcome to the
Simplification Centre

Most of us struggle with the complex information we rely on to live our lives — forms to tax our car, contracts for mobile phones, loan agreements, user guides. We don’t think it has to be as bad as it so often is.

The Simplification Centre works with organisations who need to communicate complex information. We explore new ways to communicate, we help, we educate, and we put them in touch with their customers.



2018 Information Design Summer School

The 2018 summer school is 9-14 September at the University of Bath, in the new architecture studio. This is a change to a larger location, so there are still some places left. And we’ve added a new advanced programme for people who’ve been before.

This year we’ll starting with a one day conference on the Sunday, together with the Executive Board of the IIID (International Institute for Information Design) who will be in Bath for a meeting. And we’ll be hosting the UK showing of the 2017 IIID Awards too.
