Information architecture, or interaction design?
A very nice (and informational) interview with information architect and interaction designer Donna Maurer, at the Web Standards Group site.
Information architecture projects need:
skills in organising content — figuring out how to put it together in ways to help people find what they need.
Interaction design projects need
people with the ability to understand task flows, how a detailed task works end-to-end and how to design good interaction models.
Both information architecture and interaction design “require good interface design skills.”
