David Sless’s journey to information designer coincides with the history of IDJ. David’s first paper was published in the second issue (1979). David’s journey alongside IDJ included the generosity of Peter Simlinger of IIID (1980s) and the encouragement of Paul Stiff of Reading University (1990s). IDJ is still a vital part of David’s life.
