Richard Saul Wurman is an architect, a cartographer, the creator of the Access Travel Guide Series, and the author and designer of more than eighty books, including Information Architects (1996), Follow the Yellow Brick Road (1991) and Information Anxiety (1989). He has also served as chairman and creative director of the TED conferences. For Wurman: The only way to communicate is to understand what it is like not to understand. It is at that moment that you can make something understandable. In the end, all I am ever trying to do with every project I do is to do good work.”
