The Information Design Handbook

  • Jenn and Ken Visocky O’Grady
  • Copyright 2008, HOW Books

I found this book to be very informative on the history of information design and does a great job of presenting the principles and theories that drive this important area of practice.

“…to create concise and unambiguous message. While virtually all forms of design are human-centered, information design focuses on the accurate representation of specific knowledge sets and the unique needs of the end user receiving that content.”

I am a technologist with a strong background in software engineering. I have many interests. My current distractions are 70s-80s-90s music [it's a very eclectic collection], ontology, information architecture, mobile device technology, medical bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and nanorobotics.
