Context

Context is all around us. It shapes the meaning in all types of communications. Without context, you can’t communicate effectively. Without context, you can’t understand meaning. Context is fundamental to the way we come to understand people, situations, and ideas. Context inspires feelings, thoughts and beliefs of groups and individuals. It is the background information that allows people to make informed decisions.

Venue

The event will take place in the Volkshaus at Helvetiaplatz, just a 10-minute walk from Zurich main station.

About

No matter if you are new to information architecture or an experienced professional, let’s get together and share the ways information architecture makes a difference in our lives.

What is Information Architecture?

Information architecture (IA) are structures that we use to make sure that the information people need is easy to find and to understand. So when you use a website, a mobile application or go into a store and you can find what you need and everything makes sense, that means the information architecture is doing its job.
