What is information design?
: The discipline of developing structures which allow people to find
information that's relevant to them, and use it to make decisions which
enhance their lives. . . .
If we are going to help people cope with the arrival of the
information society, where information can be delivered “any time, any
place, anywhere,” then information design needs to stake a larger claim
in the corporate world. Information design must rise to the challenge,
to rescue us from the increasingly tangled complexity we are
collaboratively creating. [Communication Nation]
