good introduction to graphic/information design Oct. 16 2009
By G. Chen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very excited when I first saw this book in Barnes and Noble. But after reading it, I kept on turning the pages hoping that the next chapter will give me the insightful, in depth information was hoping to get from it. Instead the book gave me very basic information that most graphic designers with a college education would already know. Obvious things like consistency, gestalt theory, hierarchy are covered. There was nothing too new or unconventional or even inspiring. The best that I got out of the book was that it helped reinforce the importance of certain things that I have a bad habit of not doing (like using a grid). This is a great book for a beginner, but if you are looking to go into information design (I am not sure if there even is any book that will provide something more in depth) this book isn't one of them.

Excellent Info Design Book March 14 2009
By Sean P. Cowan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading many books on the topic, attending popular seminars and scouring the Web this book presented itself as a comprehensive, easy to read resource. If the purposed of good information design is clear, direct and easy to consume information then this book practices what it preaches. The material covered is incredibly relevant for anyone who is looking to improve their approach to interactive design. The book is loaded with real world examples that make the design philosophies covered something tangible for use in a designers daily thought process and client discussions.

The Information Design Handbook by Jenn Visocky O'Grady, Ken Visocky O'Grady Feb. 20 2009

The Information Design Handbook
It is a great handbook for graphic design students as well as for people interested in organizing information.
Clever, clear, easy understanding.
Well organized with many valuable links. I recommended for my students to learn how to design not only information, also their system of work with any project.

Good resource July 4 2009
By David B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great resource for discussing and developing info graphics for any level designer or person interested creating good info graphics. A good mix of examples and explanations makes this a great book with a great price. As a 10 year vet of the Graphic Design community, I highly recommend it.
