The Meaning of Information Design

In Janet H. Murray’s text, Inventing The Medium, information design is defined as the arrangement of information in any medium so that it is available for retireval and optimized for understanding. To me information design means how easy information on the web or in print is to access and understand. I think of it as if someone new logged on to your webpage or web site would they be able to fugre out what your site was about and easily learn information from it. When the information design on a web page is done well it makes the web page more user friendly, and therefore it attracts more users. I believe that information design is a very important aspect of designing a webpage, because being able to navigate and understand a webpage or website is extremely important.
