An interview with Information Designer: Eric Kavanagh
Eric Kavanagh, a professor of information design at the École des arts visuels at Laval University in Québec City, Canada, represents a new generation of information design researchers. Although young, he begins his academic career with a decade of practical experience behind him, and, therefore knows documents as more than artifacts of study; he has a first-hand knowledge of their production and use. This understanding of the importance of documents in everyday contexts, and in unique cultural contexts, drives Eric’s passion for information design as well as his research agenda. In this interview, Eric describes his background, his current work, his thoughts about the current state of the field and his hopes for the future.
