From the Back Cover
Organizing information, especially complex information, is not an easy task, and doing so for others as a communication tool for an eye-catching image, is even less so. This book is a collection of over 140 examples of maps, sketches and diagrams, and graphs that have achieved this feat. The designers who created the work showcased in the following pages are truly international, and while they may not speak the same language as one another, they communicate common messages and themes through design—information design. Their work exemplifies how a single concept can be reprensented in several different and original ways, without losing sight of design’s main objective: to organize and communicate complex information in an easily accessible and engaging manner.
About the Author
Macarena San Martín studied design at the Catholic University of Chile, her birthplace. Before finishing her studies, she took part in a student exchange in Italy, where her experience and introduction to the world of design was an incentive for her to return to Europe and further her studies. Her destination this time was Barcelona, where she took a post-graduate course in Fashion Styling at BAU. She soon became involved in the world of publishing, thus combining all of her interests—design, fashion, and the written word.
