Design for Understanding: Solving the Small Data Problems

A session at IA Summit 2013

Thursday 4th April, 2013

8:30am to 12:30pm (EST)

As IAs and designers, we put a lot of content in front of users. But how good are we at helping people make sense of that content once it gets published to the page? Ready access to information is great, but we need better interactive tools to make sense of it all, tools that let us explore content, in rich, visual ways. In this workshop, Stephen will share the process he uses to create rich visual representations to help people make informed choices and understand complex information.
