World Information Architecture Day 2019

Date:

Ann Arbor District Library (343 S 5th Ave, Ann Arbor)

Ann Arbor World Information Architecture Day (WIAD) will feature talks on the 2019 WIAD theme, "Design for Difference." 

As designers, we are responsible for creating worlds of experiences, environments, services, and systems that impact millions of people – with lasting impacts. While we don’t have a Hippocratic Oath, it’s important for us to follow a similar goal to “do good” and “do not harm.” It is our responsibility as IAs to consider the consequences and impact our design decisions have on humanity and society as a whole.

How do we as information architects and designers design for this difference? What is this difference that we’re designing for? How can we better understand it and become more engaged and mindful for our different and diverse users? How might we communicate this understanding to others and provide more meaning and depth?
