Denver, CO, February 22, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Imagine walking into a grocery store and the aisles have no overhead signage, product labels are missing or misplaced, and the cashiers are randomly scattered around the store in no particular order. If this sounds stressful and unappealing, then you may already understand the importance of information architecture. The way humans navigate the world versus the way humans navigate the world wide web is entirely different, but the common thread is the need for structured information in an easily consumable format.
The Front Range UXPA (User Experience Professionals Association) of the greater Denver area is hosting an event at General Assembly in the River North Art District (RiNo neighborhood) this Saturday, February 24th, in recognition of World Information Architecture Day (World IA Day). The event runs from 12:30pm to 2:30pm and will be highlighted by an official satellite watch party for the world premiere of a special episode of Project UX, a web series in which a panel of user experience experts ("UXperts" Jared Spool, Alan Cooper, Bibiana Nunes, and Debra Gelman) coach and critique startup tech company's products on usability, which is a core component of information architecture. Following the viewing, a panel of local UX professionals will hold an open discussion addressing popular topics in the industry. Food and drinks will be provided.
World Information Architecture Day is an annual celebration held by the Information Architecture Institute since 2012. Events take place in six different continents, spanning countries all over the world. World IA Day is only growing in stature, as participation has grown by 33% and 18% over the last two years respectively.
