Hi! I'm Giovanni Abbatepaolo :)
When I grow up I want to be an information architect: I *deeply* like organizing information (but also other stuff, like shelves and drawers).
Currently looking for an MA in the field.
At the moment I'm co-coordinator @ La Scuola Open Source. We're working on organizing all their data and trying to map all the processes and procedures, in order to make them more accessible for members.
I see a strong bond between information architecture and learning. I think that properly organized information (both semantically and visually) can really help people understand even hard concepts.
My BA thesis (you can read it here – italian only, sry) deals exactly with topic. I designed an application that can help people easily rearrange and structure visually the content of books (I'll develop it soon).
BA: Graphic Design and Visual Communication @ ISIA Urbino
Because of this bond between information architecture and learning, I also like teaching. I have a background in graphic design, book design, typography. And I like to code – so I teach generative graphics, generative books, generative typography.
- Generative typography – 1
- Generative typography – 2
- Generative typography – 3
- Generative typography – 4
- Generative graphics – 1
- Generative graphics – 2
Last but not least: I like to code tools for designers – mostly web apps but also simple python scripts.
All code is open source (and moderately documented). Here's my GitHub.
