World IA Day 2020 Los Angeles
The IA Element. Past, Present, and Future
Each part counts for its own purpose. But all elements must work together. The meaning behind it is the IA element.
The World IA Day was created to celebrate Information Architecture (IA) and to empower local leaders keep growing and sharing within their communities.
In 2020, more than anything, we want to reinforce this celebration – highlighting how IA is Elemental (or integral) to having the best results.
How IA ties and binds different ideas involved, the end users, the stakeholders, the designers and the developers. How IA is often the bridge element between them all and tying together through understanding. How IA filters the noise for a better collaboration for a growing community.
IA is essential, IA is key, IA is Elemental.

Natalie Dunbar: Enterprise Content Strategist - Information Architecture and Content Strategy: The Experience-Making Magic of Tidying Stuff: If we assume that content contained in information spaces is meant to be found, interacted with and consumed, what IA and Content Strategy have in common is a desire to improve wayfinding and navigation in those spaces to help users complete a task or transaction.
Geremy Mumenthaler: Design Philosopher at Philosophie - The Architecture of Typography: Typography as a tradition favors strong structure born from the technology that created it. Just because the capabilities of using type have become virtually endless doesn’t mean we can’t learn from strong communication patterns of the past. You’ll learn a few things you can use today that will last you a lifetime.
