Growing Information Architecture Communities Since 2012

World Information Architecture Day is a one-day annual celebration hosted by the Information Architecture Institute and held in dozens of locations across the globe. We are dedicated to the empowerment of local leaders. Our celebrations inspire the global growth of information architecture as a community of practice and we value diverse thoughts and thinkers in our celebrations.

Tampa Bay joined the celebration in 2015.

Ever since, she has volunteered on the Tampa Bay leadership team and, with the support of a friend and mentor, continues her education of IA. As a graphic designer, this new tool set helps her to create work that doesn’t just strive to look good, but be good.
