ABOUT INFORMATION DESIGN:
Humantific integrates information design (sensemaking) into all of our changemaking projects.
Information Design is one aspect of sensemaking and is the organization and design of complex and/or large amounts of data/information to make it more understandable and usable. It’s all about clarity of thinking and clarity of communication, a mix of organization and visualization/storytelling.
Information designers are natural born sensemakers. This means that they look at the world with a systems thinking and organization approach. They continuously question: “What does this mean? Is it clear? Could it be better organized and communicated?
We are not set up to teach the basic principles of information design so we are looking for qualified candidates who are familiar with the foundational principles and are already operating at high levels of proficiency.
Humantific works with organizational leaders from business and social entrepreneurship facing continuous VUCA change in their industries. We help organizations build and apply next-generation sensemaking and changemaking capacity. We do that by combining advanced knowledge of Design Thinking, Creative Problem Solving, and Information Visualization.
