Event Details

Summary

Good visual communication is essential, yet graphics are often an afterthought in DITA implementations. We need a new approach to make them work well over an increasing range of screen sizes, devices, and contexts. Graphics illustrate relationships, demonstrate subtle concepts, and build emotional connections with brands. But they have to look clear and attractive over many screen sizes and software tools. As our image libraries grow, we can't keep manually tweaking different versions for different outputs. Image processing tools are smart enough to handle this automatically; we just need to set up the rules. But the key to success is information architecture: the same needs analysis, planning, and content type definitions that we'd apply to any structured content solution.
