InformForm #2: Pictorial Design System

InformForm is an impressive new publication from studio Mwmcreative. The first issue looks at the theory and practice of information design, while issue two is set to examine pictorial design systems, with help submissions from design students.

At just 48 pages, InformForm issue one packs a lot into its small format, with essential information on how to produce all manner of diagrammatic displays, charts and graphs. The journal is produced, researched and published by Maria da Gandra and Maaike van Neck of London-based, Mwmcreative.

Mwm has just posted a call for submissions on mwmcreative.co.uk for its second issue. The studio are currently accepting projects from design students (BA and MA) who have explored pictorial design and its applications. For more details on how to apply, visit the submissions page. A series of InformForm student briefs will also launch early in the new year. "A holistic approach towards research methods, technical glossary, interviews with professional practitioners will be key (pun intended)," write Mwm. "InformForm #2 will examine the student experience, process and development in information design."

The studio will also be visiting a range of institutions and universities in spring term 2013 for workshops, seminars and lectures. The second issue will be published autumn 2013.
