The IIID Award celebrating our best work

The IIID Award is a great celebration of what information designers contribute to society. They apply creativity and design thinking to solve complex communication problems, and to improve every aspect of human life.

When we travel, information designers help us find the way. When we buy things, they help us to make informed choices. When we pay tax or claim benefits from government, they explain our rights and responsibilities and make the process run smoothly. They reveal what data means, they help us find information quickly, and they explain how complex systems work. Information designers help us understand health and healthcare systems, and how our pension works. And more.

In spite of all this, most people know too little about information design. The IIID Award seeks to put that right by showing off our best work, and I look forward to seeing the 2020 entries and prizewinners.
