|SADIM Design Cycle|
I've been getting really excited about the potential of infographics for improving permaculture communication and generally smartening up course materials. Above is a little SmartArt graphic I made in Microsoft Word to illustrate the SADIM design framework/process/cycle. I wished I discovered how to do this a bit earlier, as it would have made my presentation on Design Frameworks look a lot neater!
The supremo of infographics appears to be Edward Tufte, author of a few great books on the subject. Via his website I came across this great video he executive produced: Inge Druckrey: Teaching to See which is an introduction to observation and design thinking coming from a graphic design perspective.
