Information Design for Technical Communicators

Professionals who produce technical communications--whether they are technical writers, web and graphic designers, trainers, or engineers--can benefit from knowledge of information design. In broad terms, information design is the integration of words and pictures to help readers meet their goals for using the communication piece. We will study how to use clear writing, analysis of the audience's needs, legibility of typography, design of spatial cues, and the interplay of words and pictures to create documents, printed or electronic, that readers understand and respond to aesthetically and emotionally.
