I picked up a copy of MX today, (sophisticated reading I know) and noticed this advertisement by State Rail. It warns that anti social behaviour will attract an on the spot fine. I thought Aggressive Guy was pretty close to a persona in marketing. Not a very fleshed out persona I’ll admit, but I think we have all come across someone like this. Bogans, you have been warned!
Climate change, Copenhagen, Emission Trading Schemes, K Rudd, Malcolm Turnbull … it all gets a bit much sometimes. I don’t know about you, but the media landscape on this topic overwhelms me. So I am going to dedicate some time to reading Climate Debate Daily. It is information architecture for information overload.
I really appreciate when people share their definitions of job descriptions within the web industry. I just finished reading this post, Why front-end developers are so important to the future of businesses on the web [Sep 24, 2009] by Paul Carvill, a web developer for the Guardian.
Hereford Street and Surrounds was made with my boyfriend and housemates for a friend’s 50th birthday. All four of us contributed to the photos on an afternoon running around Glebe and Forest Lodge. I then did minor Photoshop tweaking and layout. Pretty easy stuff, for great effect.
Yesterday I discovered a great online tool, or thought I had. Coming across the site I went to add it to my Delicious bookmarks—but I had already added the site in 2006!
May 21 and 22 was the 7th webDU and my 3rd as part of the Daemon team who organise the event. WebDU is a technology conference, primarily but not solely, focused on developers. Amongst all the code and whiz bang-ery this year was an entire track dedicated to the consulting and planning side of projects: Team/UX (user experience). The room was packed for the whole two days.
I was chatting to a friend recently. She works in house as a marketer and is also responsible for the production of graphic materials — ads, posters, business cards, brochures and the like. What has happened, rarely, but disastrously, is incorrect phone numbers appearing on print material that was proofed and approved by the internal client.
At an IA-Peers Sydney meet up this week I discussed what it is that I do as a web producer. The group also chatted about the job titles Information Architect and Experience Architect. Anyone in this industry will know that job titles change all the time. This is something I would like to cover in this blog; speak to other professionals and get them to define their job title.
