The nay-sayers below just don't get it. 24 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Don't read this book with the wrong expectations. This isn't a book about how to do information design. This is a book about being an information designer: theories, ethics, political and cultural issues, etc. I agree, the visual design is less than eloquent: standard MIT Press "academic." But the writing is exciting, so long as you're not looking for a how-to book. In fact, it's one of the lessons of this book that, so far as information design goes, our understanding of ID is still evolving and an how-to ID book would be premature.

Illustrates Why Info Design Is More Than Just Flowcharts 11 février 2000
Par Robert E. Dornbush, Jr. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am a professional Information Architect; However, I picked up the book without any preconcieved notions or superficial expectations. I found especially illuminating (and actually empathisized with) the comparisons between IAs conceptualizing Information Design and Traditional Architects conceptualizing "wayfinding" through building structures. For those of you who are looking for a Home Deopt style "How-To" manual on creating intuitive interface design for software applications; you simply have to surf the web for 1001 lessons on HOW NOT TO do it. Seriously, the only effective Information Design training program is years of experience in software development. A "blueprint" or plan is key to useful execution, but there is a lot more to good Information Design than a pile of flowcharts. The best an author can do is to share some of his/her insight on ergonomic design with the rest of us. While many of the reviewers found this book's exposition of visionary and philosophical approaches to design impractical; I found it to be both informative and refreshing. Information design is not about how rigidly organized the branching structure is; instead, it's about how the user "moves through" an application (hopefully with pleasure and ease of use). This calls for a combination of clever engineering and artistic design, and cannot be accomplished simply by "keeping all your ducks in a row" The most significant aspect of good Info Design, in the end, is clear, intuitive, useable interface.

Heavy reading 9 juin 2001
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book consists of a series of cross-disciplinary articles on information design. In the concluding chapter of the book, Jeff Raskin summarizes the volume by saying "I find that [the articles] accurately represent the diversity of the field - - from fuzzy New Age touchy-feely rantings to thoughtful studies." I'm inclined to agree, but fortunately, the thoughtful studies outnumber the rantings. I was fascinated most by Whitehouse's article on architectural signposting for the blind. However, many of the other articles were also exceptionally thought-provoking. Before I read this book, I thought "information design" had something to do with drawing effective graphs. But after reading these articles, I would say it is making meaning by revealing the relationships between data through planned presentation. Or something to that effect- -the field is much wider than I had ever thought before.

I organized and edited this book. The reviews are as good as the book, which is great 11 mai 2013
Par Bob Jacobson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am impressed by the symmetrical bimodal ratings for this book, with no middle ground. You, the readers, either loved or hated it. (I tried not to rate this book with this prologue, but the system persisted. So I rated your reviews.) Fantastic.

With the benefit of a decade-plus hindsight, I can honestly say I was pleased with the effort that went into Information Design but disappointed in the outcome. The book is good for what it set out to do, benefitting from the ardent enthusiasm of its contributors, each telling his or her story about the meaning of "information design" and its significance in his or her life. The negative reviewers who wrote that the book isn't a how-to are absolutely right. The field is still evolving: are there now innumerable variations on information design as a practice, and within each contending schools as to how to practice it right. Taking sides is a no-win proposition.

Still, I wish I had taken a stronger hand with the authors (who were paid nothing for their contributions). When one key author threatened to bow out, I thought, I'd better give these people more slack lest they all split and we never get to know what they have to say, not gathered together in one volume. is a cornucopia, not a flatline exposition.

That being said, the contributors did a good job interpreting my charge to them, each coming up with a unique but personally defensible characterization of information design. Taken together, they are an epistemological kaleidoscope. Every reader with whom I've spoken has his or her favorite chapter, and conversely , least-favorite chapter. That no two pairs are the same speaks to the variety inherent to information design.

Excuses needn't be made for this book in terms of its universality or timeliness. Individual case studies may become obsolescent, but not the issues they illustrate. Quite the contrary: the issues involved are controversial and live on, because fundamentally they are in the moment, irresolvable as absolutes. Information design intends to serve a purpose. It either serves that purpose or it doesn't. That's as much theory as the field realistically needs to generate, design critics notwithstanding.

MIT Press' unwillingness to spend a dime on this book's production, other than its dust-jacket by a little-known information designer (whom all agree was a genius) was the publisher's failing, and almost fatal. One of the authors, Judy Anderson, an award-winning book designers, offered to redesign the book's interior presentation, at no cost; MIT Press declined her offer. Readers and reviewers (the editor included) are right: MIT Press dropped the ball. The graphical treatment did not live up to the quality of the text. MIT Press paid for this hubris in terms in lost earnings. Information Design could have done even better than it did, which was grand. The excellent visual quality of MIT Press' new books show it's learned its lesson.

For those who have a hankering to learn more about information design, visit Dutch designer Peter J. Bogaard's comprehensive blog on the subject -- now in its 19th year -- "InfoDesign: Understanding by Design," at [...] It remains the go-to source in the field.

An intriguing look at the life of the information designer. 4 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Unlike the previous reviewer, I actually read the book and especially its introduction. INFORMATION DESIGN fulfills its promise: it reveals what it means to be an information designer at an ethical, even emotional level. I was especially impressed by the diversity of the contributors and their willingness to express doubts as well as hopes for this emerging profession. INFORMATION DESIGN isn't exclusively a how-to book. More importantly, it helped me to understand what information design is and why it's done in the first place. This is a must-read for those of you who aspire to become or already are information designers. You have your work cut out for you!
