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.



2017 Information Design Summer School: 4-8 September 2017


Our 2016 summer school welcomed seventeen people from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Austria, Belgium, and Ukraine. They were graphic designers, technical writers, contracts lawyers, forms designers, educators and statisticians – all wanting to focus on information design for an intensive week of lectures, discussions and projects. The next summer school is 4-8 September 2017, also in Bath, UK. It’s almost full up so get in touch quickly if you’re interested.
