Have you ever needed to visually communicate the significance of quality APIs? For a long time SirsiDynix was the only company in the Library Automation Industry that offered database access. A few years back, one of SD’s competitors decided to make some APIs of their own available, but their APIs were lackluster, allowing “read-only” access alone. They also launched an email campaign targeting SD customers and mocking SD’s claim to “open” software. When customers started forwarding these marketing emails to us we decided to answer, and this was the answer we crafted. They told me to make an infographic about our APIs. I did the research and design myself and I used Illustrator during creation.
