source SIGraDi 2017 [Proceedings of the 21th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-227-439-5] Chile, Concepción 22 - 24 November 2017, pp.93-99
summary Oriented to discuss about how information contributes to resilience, this paper presents a research-based project that integrates design and performance measuring. This project is Guemil, an open source initiative aimed to represent risk and emergency contexts through icons. As a simple solution with a focus on risk management cycle + user experience, the set of icons is designed around a ‘before > during > after’ concept. To verify performance about interpretation from users, icons are currently being tested worldwide. Reflections from the process and future projections are presented as conclusion.
