What is Information Architecture?

Information Architecture (IA) are structures that we use to make sure that the information people need is easy to find and to understand. So when you use a website, a mobile application or go into a store and you can find what you need and everything makes sense, that means the information architecture is doing its job.

What is World IA Day?

World IA Day connects the world through Information Architecture. World IA Day is a one-day annual conference organized by the Information Architecture Institute and held simultaneously in dozens of cities across the world.

Who is the WIAD for?

Information architects, user experience designers, business owners, content specialists, developers and all you web enthusiasts.
