We recently mounted a gallery of everyday information architecture photos taken during the planning stage for an application design. The application performs activity tracking and consolidated reporting for more than twenty organizations, each reporting to the same funder. Members of this federation ranged from small 3 person offices to larger non-profits with two dozen personnel.
Visiting and taking the pictures at various locations helped discover work patterns, as well as provide opportunities for further discussions with the people who would use the planned application.
