Basically, various approaches could be used to create digital representation, but in information design, selected approach and type of representation should be well planned by considering the goal of communication and its target communicant. On this occasion, one approach utilizing computer graphic particularly vector graphic to reconstruct heritage digitally is discussed. This approach has wide potential application to answer the communication problems. Using Borobudur relief as a case, advantages, method, and application of vector graphic reconstruction in context of information design are explained.
