Information Design Theories
Pettersson, Rune
Journal of Visual Literacy, v33 n1 p1-96 2014
Information design has practical and theoretical components. As an academic discipline we may view information design as a combined discipline, a practical theory, or as a theoretical practice. So far information design has incorporated facts, influences, methods, practices, principles, processes, strategies, and tools from a large number of disciplines. Information design also needs to incorporate theories, or parts of theories, from other disciplines. This essay presents seven information design theories with more than hundred facts, hypotheses, and postulates.
