Information Design merges data with dynamism. Visual literacy, like linguistic and mathematical literacies, is a key skill in this digital age. Introduction to Information Design focuses on how to visualise and experience content (research, white papers, social media posts, taglines, brand stories) through balancing form and function. From way-finding and warning signs to posts, articles, forms, and user interfaces, this course looks at the strategies, histories, and the applications of information principles and information visualisation to bring order and appeal to your content. The Quantico Company Pte Ltd is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified Organisation. This workshop has undergone and been certified by international quality assurance testing and audit.
Information Design Workshop Overview.
How we read and process a novel or poem differs intensely from how we process information in a form, social media posts, search results, timetables, parking signs, and e-commerce webpages.
Simply put, information design is about making data desirable by adapting content to appropriate reading methods. The networked world is a rich marketplace, where a single cellphone contains more information than entire libraries, museums, and exhibitions put together. This course responds to the demand for making complex content easy to understand and beautiful to look at.
Form and function fuse together to create familiar forms of physical and digital communication (social media posts, white papers, data tables, wayfinding signs, parking coupons, sign-up forms, medical leaflets) in uniquely pleasing combinations of words, images, and sounds which add to the integrity of your content.

Future: Information design in VR spaces
As information designers, we are tasked with creating meaning through graphical elements that include words, images, and sounds. In this workshop, we will study and understand why simplicity is both essential and difficult to achieve, owing to (i) data volumes; (ii) graphical limitations; (iii) user attention spans; (iv) information anxiety and over-compensation. Learning to narrate information is an essential skill that goes far beyond artistic or drawing talents. You will be able to think in systematic design processes, apply rational frameworks to problems, and translate your findings into appealing solutions. You will also be able to develop and package your content in a simple, clear graphical language (not art) alongside other mainstream semantic and linguistic representations. There are no conditions or pre-requisites for attending this workshop.
Workshop Learning Objectives.
On completion of this workshop you will be able to:
• Identify and implement simplicity principles in data visualisation
• Develop iconographic languages for your brand and individual projects
• Create infographics for print, digital, and AR + VR spaces
• Think in both linguistic and diagrammatic frameworks
• Manage information assets across markets and mindsets
• Understand audience expectations in cultural circumstances
• Orient your audiences towards meaningful data dialogues
