Review:


"It is a unique privilege to help shape a profession .... Information architecture has emerged from a diverse set of people with skills in structuring information to make it useful, applying their skills to what at first appeared to be a new kind of documentation .... This book not only reviews the profession in order to train new professionals, it is an important contribution to creating it." — Dr. Arnold Lund, Director of Information Architecture, Sapient




""This book provides exactly what is needed at this point in history-a solid framework which I feel the vast majority of practicing information architects will agree with." — Karen Young, Information Architect, IBM

About the Author:

Earl Morrogh is a writer, designer, and educator who has studied and worked for 30 years in several fields including architectural and visual design, multimedia design, communications, and education.

He holds an undergraduate degree in sociology with a minor in architecture and a master's degree in mass communication with a specialization in interactive communications. At present he is a consultant and visiting scholar in Florida State University's School of Information Studies where he has taught undergraduate courses in information architecture and design theory.

Born in southwest Louisiana, "Acadiana," Mr. Morrogh has lived in the Florida panhandle since 1972 where he enjoys living in a rural setting in a house he and his wife of 23 years designed and built. He also enjoys sea kayaking, sailing, scuba diving, and other water-related recreational activities.
