Eight Principles of Information Architecture
For the last few years, I’ve been informally codifying some universal principles that guide my work as an information architect. They’re not guidelines or patterns… just some things that ring true and that help inform my designs.
These principles were the topic of my short session at this year’s IA Summit (taking place in the arid, strangely quiet Phoenix, Arizona). I’ve posted the slides to SlideShare (also embedded below), and the speaker’s notes are intact. For those interested in the process that got me to the slides, you can download a PDF of the outline I prepared.
