One of the great things about being in this hemisphere is that it makes it all the more easy for me to get to some of the conferences I’ve been dying to get to for ages. March this year is going to be very exciting because I’m going to both SXSW and the IA Summit.
Anyone else heading in that direction? I’m looking forward to putting some faces to some names!
I’m also very excited to be participating in a panel at the IA Summit. Chaired (and organised) by Peter Boersma, and featuring amazing people like Peter Merholz, Livia Labate, Larisa Warnke and Josh Seiden (and me!), we’re going to be discussing where in the design process information architectureÂ fits.
Some of the questions that Peter says he’s going to ask include:
- When should IAs be part of a design team?
- How do IAs work together with other design team members?
- How do you communicate your design process to clients?
- How do you measure improvements in your design process?
Â I have a few opinions… but I’d be really interested to hear how you’d field these ones!
