Blog Dedicated to Edward Tufte
Edward Tufte is a self-descide “Data-Scientist” – but graphic designers know him as the designer-analyst of all things information. I took his course many years ago in Boston and thought the man was laying out my entire life – all the interests I’ve ever pursued and enjoyed. To be honest it was very revelatory to find that a professor at Yale would analyze good and bad information design – with surprising results and damaging evidence for when very public events went very wrong because decision were made looking at data that was organized and presented in a confusing visual manner. I will be posting in the future more about his research and writings.
