Mount Royal University information design students learn to produce clear, concise and visually attractive materials, enhancing how people read, understand and use information.

OUR DEFINITION

Information design is the art and science of preparing or “designing” information so that it can be used by human beings with efficiency and effectiveness. Information design applies traditional and evolving design principles to the process of translating complex, unorganized, or unstructured data into valuable meaningful information. In short, information designers design understanding and there are few, if any, occupations that do not feel the influence and benefits of good information design.
