Vision Plus México
Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (UAM), Mexico City
29 – 31 October 2018
This year, Vision Plus will take place in Mexico City – the 2018 “World Design Capital”. The conference focuses on the influence of information design on the development and experience of cities.
International professionals, students, and teachers will come together at the conference to discuss innovative approaches and skills in information design. The UAM in Mexico City is this year’s venue creating the space for cross-cultural and interdisciplinary discussions on design and a knowledge exchange on methods and procedures. Since 1995, the International Institute for Information Design has been organising international symposia under the banner of Vision Plus. The global network of designers and organisations is committed to optimising information technology and business processes in education, science, and everyday life. Topics include the environment and climate change, urban mobility and associated traffic risks, disaster management, and crime and violence prevention and reduction. It also evaluates the cultural development of cities and the social lifestyles of urban dwellers. How can information design become an instrument for finding solutions to urban challenges? How can we make cities accessible, useful, and efficient? How does information design in cities influence the experience of urban residents? Vision Plus is held in English and offers the opportunity to participate in 20-minute presentations followed by discussion or in 90-minute interactive workshops.
