Event description

Description

World Information Architecture Day Pittsburgh presents:

2019: Design for Difference

As information architects and user experience designers, we are responsible for creating worlds of experiences, environments, services, and systems that have lasting impact on numerous people. While we don’t have a Hippocratic Oath, it is our responsibility to consider the consequences our design decisions have on people.

Research is a foundational step in the design process. It ensures that we understand and account for diverse user needs within communities, both in our own domains and globally. There is no average user; there is no ‘norm’. We seek to understand and design, among other factors, for:

  • Difference in ability and disability

  • Difference in access to information and technology

  • Difference in language and cultural understanding

  • Difference in age, gender, and identity

  • Difference in experience


World IA Day (Saturday, February 23, 2019) is an annual, global, conference-like celebration of the practice and education of Information Architecture, with distributed events organized by local volunteers.

This year in Pittsburgh, spend a fabulous day hearing from experts in our community and participating in a choice of workshops. The conference's excellent value is made possible, for an affordable ticket fee, by our wonderful local sponsorsincluding headlining sponsor TEKsystems Digital.
