The Simplification Centre

I don’t know, you don’t hear anything for nearly a month, then two posts come along at once.

There is a new service being pion­eered by Reading University which trains civil servants on how to write better docu­ments. It’s called the Simplification Centre, and it offers much more than the usual plain English train­ing! They can teach you how to design your forms, brochures and docu­ments, with the end result that they’re easier to fill in, easier to respond to and easier to under­stand.

I met with Professor Rob Waller, Martin Evans and Jenny Waller in March, and they’re a very commit­ted team, work­ing on a revolu­tion­ary idea! Check out the Simplification Centre weblog, and Rob’s weblog the Simpleton, which has some great obser­va­tions on life and design.

The follow­ing two tabs change content below.

I believe design and design­ers can and should make the world a better place. I love design­ing things that help people under­stand complex ideas.
