I'm very excited at all the speakers we will have. Like last year, I am staggering their announcement through July/ Summer.
This blurb from Eventbrite sums up what The Design of Understanding is all about:
‘St Brides is the ideal partner for a conference that values insight as much as inspiration.
Looking at information design and beyond, our speakers are experts in their fields who practice and speak without ego.
This conference is about designers needing to understand their subjects before communicating them. It is also about subjects tangential to design and the universal lessons we can learn from them.
The format encourages concise crisp stories and we won’t be having any dull portfolio viewings.
We‘ll announce our stellar line-up through July. Tickets sold out three months before last time so get your ticket fingers ready.’
I've nearly agreed the speakers for Design of Understanding 2012 and a fine bunch they are.
I've done that same thing of getting together 12 people I admire and want to hear speak.
I need to sort out the DOU site, get tickets available and then start to publicise it over the next few months.
If you missed out on tickets for DOU2011 then keep an eye out in the next month.
Michael Blastland was one of the most popular speakers at the recent Design of Understanding conference.
Here is his new radio show - starts today. Iplayer available to UK people after.
Got any questions on News (Information) Design?
