Design for Difference

Global Theme 2019

Designing for difference is fundamental for Information Architecture. Users have different premises, needs, approaches and means to access information. They act in various contexts and have different requirements to the language and depth of content. It is our job to make sure we understand our users and their needs and to develop solutions that work for real people.

WIAD Switzerland will present a wide array of different projects to show the broadness of our field and the questions it involves.
