Abby Covert

An independent information architect based in NYC Author, How to Make Sense of Any Mess (2014)

No matter what your job or mission in life: if you are working with other people you are dealing with information architecture. Information Architecture is the way that we arrange the parts of something to make it understandable. Whether it is determining the labels for your products and services or creating navigational systems to help users move through a complex ecosystem of marketing channels, everybody architects information.

The concepts one has to understand to practice information architecture thoughtfully are not hard to learn or based on expensive tools. In fact they are tools and concepts we at the Information Architecture Institute think everybody should know. This half day workshop is meant to introduce the concepts of IA and give you confidence in practicing IA yourself.

Free book!

All attendees will receive a paperback copy of Abby's book How to Make Sense of Any Mess. Already have it? Give it to a friend or coworker!
