Teaching Information Architecture

Information Architecture is one of my 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 help make things simple but also create engagement? This class I’m 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 redesign, a website showcasing a collection of objects and the design of a mobile application for a museum.
