Information needs architecture, but they’re not the same thing

Slightly spooky voiceover (always unnerving to have recorded ‘live’ pauses thrown in), but we’re enjoying the simplicity of these pieces about information architecture, stripped down to the bare essentials, and split into a piece on architecture and another on information. Cool animation too.

From MAYA Design in Pittsburgh. And here’s how they talk about the nature of information architecture.

“By thinking about the architecture of how information is used, how it flows, and how it fits within the user’s world (its context), you can capture the essence of how to build a system that is not only intuitive but futureproof.”

Thanks to @daveElf for drawing it to our attention.
