Information Design is rapidly becoming one of the foremost challenges of our age. With media consumption habits and channels fracturing and proliferating, how museums choose to deliver content will be an ever more critical factor in our ability to create rich experiences for our visitors. Over the course of multiple events in 2020, the Interaction Lab will explore the relationship between information design practice, content strategy, and technology platforms as they relate to museum visitor experience in general, and to our work here at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
For this first event, we will be joined by Giorgia Lupi, Information Designer, Pentagram Partner, and Data Humanist. During the first part of the evening, Giorgia will share various approaches to information design to frame our thinking. Then, we’ll move into the galleries to think together about how we might apply those same ideas within the physical and theoretical walls of Cooper Hewitt.
