Teaching Information Architecture

Information Architecture is one of our favorite subjects: understanding how to use design to organize information in ways that appeal to and engage the user. It's a big subject and a complex one, especially when we're bombarded with so much information on a daily basis. How can design really help make things simple and informative but also create return interest and engagement? This class we're co teaching at the Kansas City Art Institute Graphic Design studio explores the above questions and seeks to answer them in the design of three projects: a website remake, a website showcasing a collection of collectables and the design of a mobile application for a museum.
