Information Design Problems and Solutions

A day discussing information design, just before the summer school: 9 September 2018

This September the IIID Executive Board is meeting in Bath, just as the summer school participants are arriving. We thought it would be good if we could all meet, and spend a creative day together. 

For the Board members it’s a chance to work together, and to hear summer school participants talk about what they think information design is, the problems they want it to address, and the connections they see with their own field (many are from fields such as health, law, technical writing and other application areas).

For summer school participants, it’s a chance to interact with some of the most experienced information designers. 

So we’ve arranged an informal day of presentations and discussion, on such things as:

  • – a finished project you’d like to share
  • – a problem you’d like to pose and discuss
  • – an idea for a dissertation you’d like feedback on
  • – a connection you’d like to make between information design and another area.

Presentations will be expected to be short and fast-paced, allowing generous time for discussion. We hope that interesting problems will be revealed, which we can return to in the summer school.

Everyone is invited (not only the speakers) to contribute to a book of the day, if they wish to, which will be published online. We’re modelling this on the book of the IIID’s 2014 Vision Plus conference:

We will meet in The Edge, the University of Bath’s arts centre (, starting at 10.30, and finishing at around 16.30. The end time may change depending on the programme.

How much?

There is no cost for summer school participants, or IIID board members.
Others are welcome to join us, and we ask for a £30 donation towards costs.
