PUTTING THE FORM IN INFORMATION SINCE 1987
Information Design Solutions
The primary job of an information designer is creating the bridge between data and knowledge.
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
-Hans Hofmann, painter (1880-1966)
Our standard board exhibit is printed with Canon 12-color fade-resistant inks on fast-drying high-quality media (to meet short deadlines) and mounted on Ultra clay-coated foam board (to resist warping).
Quality exhibits at a reasonable price.
The reason we take the extra effort in our prints:
1.Our graphics are worth it.
2.We’ve seen many cases where trials are continued, appealed, etc and the competitions exhibits are deteriorating and warping while the case drags on.
The information will usually dictate the best media choice.
For example, a timeline or chronology can frequently be a keystone exhibit - referred to frequently - as you present other evidence related to the events on the timeline. It is best suited as a board.
If it presents an intricate series of information it may be important to reduce the complexity by introducing the timeline components as builds with on-screen presentation before introducing the board.
Putting mind’s i media in charge of the production of your visual communications assures that we will do our best to:
• Minimize cost - With advance planning and clear communication, we can present you with a range of options to make your point and fit your budget.
• Control quality - By using our own tools and experience we can take responsibility for all phases of presentation production
• Assure confidentiality - We are very aware of the confidential nature of your data. Our experience with graphics for the legal arena, helped develop our commitment to security.
• Shorten development time - Our experience allows us to recognize when a familiar problem can be solved with a technique used in the past. We recognize that no information design problem is identical to another, but basic templates help speed up the initial development process.
We take responsibility for the details - In short, we deliver what you need, on time, in a form that exceeds your expectations
Effective visual communication must be strong in concept and design.
Understanding is a path, not a point.
We can help you process your information.
✔ By helping you organize and visualize your essential points.
✔ By assembling your data into a story of easily understood, persuasive information.
✔ By clarifying, not just simplifying, the information.
✔ By repeating the information. There is room for redundancy.
✔ Be offering a layman’s or juror’s perspective.
One of the most valuable things an information designer may have to offer is not expertise or creativity, but ignorance and curiosity. You may be so familiar with the details of your information that you may have forgotten what it is like to not have the knowledge you worked so long to obtain. You may need reminding as to what building blocks of information are required.
