Information design touches nearly every aspect of our lives. It is hidden in school books, financial statements, digital interfaces, street signs, food packaging, instruction manuals and much, much more. Information is always embedded within a complete system, an information space of context, experience and expectations.
We facilitate understanding
Making it easy and enjoyable for people to perceive, access and understand information that matters to them.
We design information
Information design helps understand and use documents, environments, systems or objects when and where they are needed.
There are no instant solutions.
Use analysis, strategy, process, evaluation, implementation – with our partners we work to create measurably better interaction experiences for everyone. The result: sometimes unexpected, sometimes obvious. But in any case improving quality of use in the following application areas:
- Orientation and wayfinding
- Medical information
- Product information
And with a design for all / inclusive design approach in all our projects.

We use various qualitative methods to implement a holistic, user-centred process.
- Four times C for quality of use: Context, Cooperation, Content, Concept. Plus an iteration between the design process and evaluation, revolving around the people who use the application, space or service.
- Understanding the requirements: By asking „Who?“, „Why?“, „Where?“ „When?“ and „How?“ we gain an insight into peoples‘ values, expectations and actions.
- Perception, orientation, action: We want people to feel comfortable and enable them to complete whatever task they need to perform – in short: create a positive experience.
- Good design is measurable: How people use the document, space or object, how the interaction works for them, where they fail – in a railway station, on a website, with a medical leaflet or washing machine.
Regional, international, multidisciplinary: is-design is active in several (worldwide) networks of people concerned with high quality information and user experience.
Such a network enables us to easily connect with partners who contribute specific knowledge or resources required in the delivery of a commission.
