At our startup Twygg, our mission is to represent key information about software projects. We will show how our interdisciplinary team went about developing a new visual language about this highly abstract subject. Physical structures started to emerge as we aggregated data and looked for meaningful ways to organize it. Mixing graphical design with data engineering and ontological work has been challenging. However, information is always subjective, and architecting it greatly benefits from different perspectives.
Based on a few real-life examples, we’ll share our learnings on what has been helpful in getting over the disciplinary divide. This is relevant for information architects who tend to work at the intersection of different fields.
