You don’t hear the job title ‘information architect’ so often these days.

It’s all ‘UX Designer’ this and ‘UX Architect’ that.

However, information architecture (IA) as a discipline is more important than ever.

If you’ve ever begun a large web design (or redesign) project, looked at the masses of disjointed or outdated content, and realised that you’d bitten off more than you could chew, you’ll know what I mean.

Information architecture—the organising and structuring of content—feels like one of those nebulous fields for those who haven’t studied it. But it’s the principles behind IA that can turn a daunting, messy hodgepodge of content into a findable, usable collection of useful information.

It’s also the topic of the next UX Mastery ebook, to be released on Thursday, June 26, titled A Practical Guide to Information Architecture. The author of the book is arguably one of the foremost experts on the topic, Donna Spencer.
