In the digital experience economy, the architecture and design of user interfaces are as critical to a business’s success as the architecture and design of the technology infrastructure that supports them. This poster leverages the DSIA UX design practice verticals to express key activities that shape digital experience architecture.
This is the DSIA Research Initiative’s official communication for a creed of IA practice.
This poster charts the basic skills for freshman, junior and senior tactical IA practitioners against the DSIA segmentation for UX design practice verticals.
This IA maturity assessment is one of the industry’s first methods designed to help practitioners quantify information architecture solutions in a tangible and actionable manner. This chart is used to generate a heuristic benchmark called a maturity index that measures the domain readiness of a site’s information architecture.
If you can imagine an iceberg and remember six important areas of interest, this poster can prepare you for understanding and explaining the purpose of information architecture!
This quick reference guide provides an illustration of the basic theoretical concepts and principles of the IA “common set.” If you’re looking for a cheat sheet for creating site information architecture, this is it.
This resource offers a sound perspective that allows you to take greater action against information overload (IO). The chart includes IO signature descriptions and heuristics for building an information architecture strategy with greater intention.
The DSIA Research Initiative promotes the idea that practice leads to discipline. Discipline is important because it leads to consistent and optimized performance. This guide advises on practicing with greater intent and shares insights into the perspectives that are valuable for producing discipline.
This guide is targeted for managers. However, IA and UX design practitioners of all proficiency and organizational accountability will find this guide useful.
If you’re responsible for site information architecture, you must ensure your site is search engine friendly. This shouldn’t be too hard since “what’s good for information architecture is good for SEO.”
This DSIA resource quickly explains why and how to include basic SEO thinking into your IA strategy.
This chart highlights information architecture and other major practice verticals that contribute to the scope of user experience design and shows exactly where the practice of UX design elegantly intersects across disciplines.
Information architects and UX designers will find this chart valuable on many levels.
