About Information Design

In an increasingly competitive and visual world, you need experts to help build understanding, effect change and make memorable impacts on your audiences. You need excellent information design.

This is not about market positioning, this is making sure that when you need to communicate complex ideas, that those communications are designed for your audience and are developed on a framework that is designed to translate information into knowledge.

Hothouse Design is the only communication design company that focuses solely on most cost sensitive element of your communication to customers, staff and stakeholders: your expert and complex information.

Decades of experience in explaining complexity enable us to work with our clients’ C-Suite, L&D Managers, senior marketing leaders, engineers and internal experts to help find the right way to communicate complexity.

Most of our experience has been focussed in transport, mining and infrastructure – we know these industries better than any other agency. And our staff have the technical background to back it up.

How do we make it happen? With capabilities like these:

WE USE DESIGN THINKING FRAMEWORKS TO DESIGN FOR THE END USER

As information designers we take a user-centred approach to communicating complexity, framing the information to suit the user’s perspective.

Our creative process includes using design thinking frameworks to ensure that information is translated into knowledge using the appropriate visual language.

OUR HAPPY PLACE IS IN THE TECHNICAL SPACE

We love working with experts in the technical and engineering space. We can read engineering drawings, design production processes that work and aren’t freaked out by data and spreadsheets! Our team have both technical and design qualifications as well as years of experience in technical and engineering projects.

WE INVEST IN THE ACTIONS THAT MAKE RELATIONSHIPS STRONG

Our clients and suppliers tell us that they like the way we work. We take a long term view to relationships and invest in the actions that deliver on the basics of being reliable, consistent and effective. That means having processes that work, being systematic and considering the needs of all the actors.
