The company name Information Design is meant literally: We design information - visible information as well as organized structures that turn data into information and information into knowledge.
Our job is beyond visual design. Before presenting well-formed information, it must have been transported, collected, filtered, integrated, stored and structured.
We take care of the conceptual design of all these steps:
- Architecture of 'machines' for processing information in the above ways
- Data modelling
- Modelling of Key Performance Indicators
- Visual design along the rules of a state-of-the-art information design
- Schemes for Graphical User Interfaces (GUI)
Our consultancy results in conceptual designs that cover all aspects of the respective information product, and that can form a perfect base for invitations to tender.
