The Museum of Architecture and Design published together with the co-publisher The Pekinpah Association an electronic book On Information Design edited by Petra Černe Oven and Cvetka Požar. The book registers one of the series of lectures in the theory of architecture and design Information Design 2009/2010 that ran from November 2009 to October 2010 at MAO. The lectures were the first lectures in our cultural region ever to focus on the topic of information design.
Six internationally recognized experts presented the field of information design to the Slovene public: Yuri Engelhardt, Rob Waller, Jorge Frascara, Karel van der Waarde, Malcolm Garrett and Karen Schriver. They spoke about the selection, visualization, interpretation, and communication of data. Each lecturer addressed a specific aspect of the information design, but the contributions have a few themes in common; information design that is focused on the needs of people, that is gaining interest among an increasing number of visual communication designers, that depends more on theory, empirical research and testing and improves communication.
