Visual Communication Principles

Summary

The paper describes a three step principle on how to automate design of vast amounts of information being created every year. Using well defined design principles and comparing the similarities of these principles design algorithms can be created.

Pros

  1. This new approach successfully uses design algorithms to help display both models for academic use and personal furniture building.
  2. This will certain help content creators to quickly create aesthetically pleasing content.

Cons

  1. Since the best design improves the function or use of some information, changing the design can make content harder to understand depending on the user. An example would be the example of the subway map. With the new design the stops are clearly marked, but any information of where say a landmark is now unclear.
