About Me

Hi I’m Grace Mitchell (designing under Grace Elaine Design), I’m a design student from Sydney, I have a love of learning and a love for design, I’m always interested in learning new techniques and I am open to new ideas. I like to gain inspiration from the world around me from absolutely everything, from nature to architecture to art. My design experience involves print design, logo design and publication design. I am a regular design contributor on my universities’ student newspaper and currently the head designer for the WSLSA clerkship guide which is due for publishing mid 2017.

What is information/instructional design?

Information design is where complex information or mass information is organised and designed to be read simply and tell a story. Instructional design takes a set of instructions and displays them in a way that is easy for the user to understand.
