Information Architect (IA)

As the job of an Information Architect is a pretty new one and especially in Europe not quite common yet, I am trying to give an overview of the field of Information Architecture:

"Information architecture, is basically about

  • taking content and
  • creating a structure to
  • present that content to an audience.

The information architect's job to ensure that information is well-organized and presented in an easily accessible interface."

"The work of an information architect involves the design of organization, labeling, navigation, and searching systems to help people find and manage information more successfully."

Skills of an Information Architect

  • Sitemap and flow diagrams
  • Schematics
  • Content outlines
  • Labeling systems
  • Navigational prototyping
  • Task and function analysis and specification
  • Project management
