In Praise of Information Design

Information design is far from a lost art. But it has lost its lustre, as brand and interactive design now dominate the discipline.

That’s why I was thrilled, perhaps nostalgically, to see this proposal for taming ungainly credit card information in an opinion piece in The New York Times.

Kudos to designers (and AIGA Design for Democracy directors) David Gibson, Carla Hall and Sylvia Harris for taking up the challenge, and for reminding us all how it’s done.
