LONDON (Sputnik) — Stepanov spoke about the importance of visualisation and analysis during construction projects and during periods of social change, using examples from Russian history to support his case.
The world-renowned design expert also discussed the return to infographics in the design industry and their importance in presenting information in a clear, simple, and easily understandable way, drawing on examples from the ongoing international public opinion project – Sputnik.Polls.
"The London Design Biennale is an excellent event and it is a pleasure to represent the Sputnik design centre at it. The Sputnik design centre is at the cutting-edge of modern design and our various projects and dedication to professionalism keep us there. Just one example is our contribution to the Sputnik.Polls project which sees us provide engaging and useful infographics to support the data," Anton Stepanov, head of the Sputnik design centre, said.
The first ever London Design Biennale, held in the luxurious surroundings of Somerset House, brought together participants from over 30 countries including Japan, the UK, Russia, and the United States for a celebration of the best in design. Representatives from top centres of design, including the Moscow Design Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, were in attendance for the presentation of many newly commissioned works that explored the theme of the Biennale – 'Utopia by Design.'
