Dates: 19 April – 26 May 2022
Running since 2013, the Information Design Summer School has gained a reputation as the best place to get a fast introduction to the concepts, principles and challenges of information design. It’s back online for 2022.
What to expect
Information design has developed as a specialist field, with a growing research literature and critical tradition. But education and training in information design is hard to find, and people who want to develop their expertise can find themselves isolated, without access to expert help, and often without like-minded colleagues.
At the summer school you will meet with experts in information design with a depth of experience in design practice, research and education, and who cover a range of different specialisms: diagramming, typography, clear writing, content structure, design education, health information design, financial information, government information, management communications and legal information design.
The programme comprises 3-hour sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All sessions start at 12 noon UK time.
The normal Summer School is an intensive one week experience when we hold it face to face, and the online version also requires a high degree of commitment, but spread over six weeks. We are very flexible in our approach and introduce new content in response to questions and issues that emerge during the projects.
The cost of the online summer school is:
Regular fee: £375 (approx €445/$510)
Student fee: £175 (approx €205/$240).
To ensure the course is viable, there are only 3 student places available.
Cancellation policy: if you cancel after 1 April, we will not refund your fee, unless you can find someone to take your place.
