Since 1995 the International Institute for Information Design (iiid) has held its international symposia in different cities around the world under the Vision Plus banner.
Birmingham City University | 3-4 September 2015
In 2015, Vision Plus will be hosted in the UK by the School of Visual Communication at Birmingham City University and delivered in association with IIID and the IDA. The symposium will also coincide with an exhibition of the graphic work of Ivan Chermayeff, which will be shown in the Atrium of the venue.
Effective communication is a vital contributor to the peace, prosperity and persistence of our planet. With an incalculable number of people retrieving information through an unprecedented number of channels, information design needs to be more widely used so individuals can perform as citizens; governments can function; law can be observed; science and technology can be exploited; health and well-being can flourish; and the arts and culture can realise new levels of attainment.
Vision Plus 2015 will consider how information design can improve performance across a range of fields from the arts to business. It will also reflect on information design as a performance in its creation, delivery, implementation and impact across a wide gamut of disciplines and a range of platforms, which straddle geographical and linguistic boundaries. This symposium will not only deliberate on contemporary design, it will also consider information design of the past and invite visions for the future.
