MEI interview: Entretiens avec Ruedi Baur et Katherine Gillieson

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

I was flattered to be approached by Bernard Darras and Stéphane Vial, co-editors of a special issue of the journal MEI on Design & Communication, to respond to a number of questions around design, participatory democracy, communication and marketing alongside the legendary designer Ruedi Baur. The interview, published in June 2017 is fully accessible here.

Je cite:
Cet entretien avec Katherine Gillieson, Maître de conférences à l’Université d’art et design Emily Carr de Vancouver et Ruedi Baur, Professeur à la Haute école d’art et design de Genève, aborde successivement quatre grandes questions mettant en relation le design et la communication.

Information+: interdisciplinary practices in information design and information visualization.

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Information+ was an interdisciplinary conference, workshop, and exhibition aimed at bringing together researchers, educators and practitioners to discuss opportunities and challenges in information design and information visualization. The inaugural Information+ conference was held in June 16–17, 2016, at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC, Canada, with the workshop taking place on the 18th and the accompanying exhibition Information Everything, co-curated by Katherine Gillieson and Gillian Russell, running through the month of July in the Concourse Gallery at Emily Carr.

Co-organized by Katherine Gillieson, Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Isabel Meirelles, OCAD University, Information+ 2016 would not have been possible without financial support from our home institutions as well as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
