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.

The 2015 Information Design Summer School


Our 2015 summer school is being held on 7–11 September in Bath, using the facilities of Bath School of Art & Design. The programme is similar to our successful 2013 course, organised in partnership with the University of the Aegean, in Syros, Greece. This time there will be an emphasis on students’ own projects, sharing and developing ideas during the week. We’ve timed it so it follows on from Vision Plus 2015, at Birmingham City University – the latest  in a series of conferences from the International Institute for Information Design (IIID), who are also partners in our summer school.

The summer school is a great social experience, as well as a chance to immerse yourself in information design and simplification for a week, sharing experiences and with access to expert tutors. Follow this link for more information.
