    An Information Design Association evening talk by Dr Sue Perks and Rebekah Taylor

    Bruce Robertson, Managing director of book design and packaging company Diagram Visual Information sadly passed away in March 2014. Since 1960 Diagram has been acknowledged as the leading creator of informative charts and diagrams for books of their time and many designers and artists have been trained in their studios. 

    In 2013 Bruce kindly donated his archive of artwork and back catalogue of books to University for the Creative Arts. This talk will discuss how the Diagram archive was created and the significance of Bruce's methods of graphic explanation seen through artefacts from the archive.
