The IIID (International Institute for Information Design) is starting a new series of online conversations. Each month they are asking an information designer to talk about their work and ideas for around 10 minutes, then they are interviewed, and the interview morphs into a discussion which everyone can join in. The IIID researched what its members wanted, and many wanted a sense of community - they work in relative isolation and want to find out how other people do it.
IIID Conversations is free for IIID members, and €5 for non-members. You need to register first, to get the Zoom link.
The first three conversations are connected to the Information Design Summer School:
7 April 2022 at 1400 UTC: Rob Waller (Simplification Centre, UK), discussing the Information Design Summer School – how it works, who comes and how it links theory and practice through critiquing and practical projects. Register for this event.
26 April 2022 at 1400 UTC: Oliver Tomlinson (TDL Creative, UK). Oliver uses information design and visualisation in the construction industry, and will talk about the contribution information graphics makes to successful bid documents. Registration will be open soon.
3 May 2022 at 1400 UTC: Alex Tyers (Transmission Design, Australia). Alex’s practice includes financial information, medicines information, forms and other complex information. Registration will be open soon.
