Information Architecture

Like architects create environments of brick and morter to work and live in, information architects create environments and places of information to work and live in. I see this practice of #placemaking and #sensemaking as one of the fundamental traits of designing our new age.

As a result, you will #experience a digital #product or #service that makes sense to you, and which may be #fun. If so, this is a result of a thought-through #structure and #ontology which lets you form a correct #mentalmodel of the product or service.

Ping #me if you have questions around information architecture, since this is one of my favourite topics.
