The Understanding Group (TUG), an Information Architecture practice headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is pleased to announce that Andrew Hinton has joined the company and will be based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Andrew is veteran in the information architecture field, and a co-founder of the IA Institute. Over the years, he’s worked with clients and employers of all shapes and sizes, including Kimberly-Clark, RF Micro Devices, SRC.org, Vanguard, Sealy and Lowe’s Home Improvement. A long-time evangelist for the practice of information architecture, Andrew is a well-known speaker and writer in the field. He’s currently at work on a book for O’Reilly Media on how information creates and shapes context, and what that means for design.
“I came to know Andrew’s work as a thought leader in the field of information architecture many years in advance of having had the opportunity to meet him” notes Dan Klyn, co-founder of The Understanding Group “Hinton’s closing keynote at the 2008 information architecture summit had a giant impact on many of us second wave IAs pushing beyond the boundary of IA as a set of approaches for organizing information. Andrew’s known all along that the connections between structures are as much a part of the work as the structures themselves. It’s literally a dream come true for me to be able to work with him at TUG.”
