3,621 views

Published on

With more Internet connected devices than people in the world, there has never been a more important time for information architecture. Now more than ever, the world needs unprecedented collaboration from all of IA's sub-disciplines to shore up the crumbling foundations our digital experiences are being expanded upon.

We can do this by focusing on "what" before "how" in terms of the experiences we create. We can patch these crumbling foundations and make them more organized and capable for a demanding future if we focus more on the foundations of IA.

  24. 24. @danieleizans | #CSForum13 PATTERNS ARE USABLE Definition: What does our content mean to our different user bases? Patterns help us align content to a common language to make the complex clear. Arrangement (“Systems”) What should we use to organize data for users? Patterns help us find logical ways to create relationships in data? Flow: What should happen when different content types occupy different spaces? Patterns help us to choreograph how content flows within a system. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattimattila/7661817032/
