Watch Peter Morville’s “The Architecture of Understanding” talk at UXLX

Peter Morville’s User Experience Honeycomb, one of the most popular visuals in our discipline, encourages us to go beyond usability by creating products and services that are also useful, desirable, findable, accessible, and credible.

Now, for the first time, Peter explains why we must go further by creating “architectures of understanding” — and why designing for insight and inspiration is in the best interests of our firms, our users, and ourselves.
