Research in prospect
Jeanne-Louise Moys is meeting with members of the team behind News24’s Election Maps to find out more about customising information and developing regional maps for South African voters. The app recently won gold at the 2015 Bookmark awards in Johannesburg.
Research in progress
Two of our design intervention projects are drawing to a close and we are working with our collaborators to embed the practical application of the research
– Alison Black will be filming a communications video with Southampton City CCG to support the launch of their medicines waste campaign, which will go live mid-March.
– Josefina Bravo Burnier is finalising communications material to support the launch of the new care bundle for management of acute kidney injury at Royal Berkshire Hospital Foundation Trust.
Dates to look out for
Thursday 5 March: Design Star PhD student, Andrew McIlwraith, will be presenting his research at our postgraduate seminar series. His paper is entitled ‘What makes museum maps different?’
Museum wayfinding was the subject of a recent Information Design Association talk by Marijn van Oosten who recently designed an innovative 3-D map for the newly refurbished Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
