Information Design

  1. 1. Make your data talk! Using Information Design Dedicated to:
  2. 2. HURIDOCS Chicken Analogy
  3. 3. Second Newsletter, October 2006 http://www.humanrightstools.org/newsletter.htm “ Let’s face it. Advocacy reports are often tedious to read. Too much text, and too few graphics. Most readers only have time for the executive summary, and a 20-second browse through the main body of the report. What a pity! How can we make our reports more appealing? How can we capture our readers' imaginations, and imprint a lasting message in their minds? ”
