Using graphics to convey information has long been a fundamental design challenge. How do you get people to notice and absorb data that may in itself be quite mundane — but that it is necessary for them to know, as well as making it beautiful? In this special issue, we present more than 120 examples of this all-important design genre.

When a database becomes a thing of beauty

Infographics or information graphics are visual representations of information, data or knowledge. They are often used when complex information needs to be presented as quickly and effectively as possible, such as signs and maps. Infographics can be as simple as a bar chart or a pie graph to represent percentages in business information; or as elaborative as some of the examples in this book to communicate stories in newspapers and magazine.

Infographics can be entertaining when the information they represent is of personal interest; but it is especially fun and challenging when the topic may be as dry as representing concepts in technical manuals or scientific statics.

"To me, though, the main objective of good package design is to create a connection between the product and the end-customer. Like any well-made art, effective design evokes a reaction from the viewer. Whether the reaction is positive or negative is irrelevant. The key is to demand attention and, ultimately, more interaction through the package design."

"Good packaging design needs to function well. There’s nothing worse than a peel-off covering with no tab. Madness."

"Good packaging is all about understanding the three dimensions and the way the object will interact with the space and the final user. It is all about the impact, concept and final materials. Good packaging is meant to enhance the product’s features and transmit the brand values. Finally, good packaging has got to be original, creative, functional and environmentally friendly."

"Every single package asks for a peculiar way of developing it. And even if generic, we think that this is the first main rule because it contains the idea that the designer should avoid using the package just to express his own idea, a style exercise. Content comes first."
