About the book.

Information Architecture For Designers is low on theory, high on practice. It contains practical examples, how-to’s, do’s and don’ts and ready-to-use templates, illustrating concepts, tools and deliverables that can be used immediately in real-life by anyone responsible for designing web sites. Practical explanations and tips are illustrated with case studies from industry leaders like IBM and Microsoft, and clear explanations of the latest cutting-edge research from the academic world.

About the author.

Peter Van Dijck is a Belgian information architect who specializes in metadata and cultural issues. My website has more about that. I wrote this book because I felt the new discipline of information architect and the more established discipline of visual design needed to talk to each other.
