Failed information design included in the book are usually the result of clutter, an unclear message, or information overload. An example I found was a website for Rhode Islands College Bookstore. The website has cluttered advertisements and information scattered randomly on the page. The website would be better if there was organization clearly defining subjects worth navigating too. Information design should be orderly, when the audience views the page they should be able to retrieve the information they want to capture the message.
