Digital Experience Architecture

Methodbrain™ is a private research practice that studies the science behind information architecture for complex Web environments and other indeterminate information systems. Our research has practical applications in the following areas of human-computer interaction:

  • Information Architecture
  • User Experience (UX) architecture
  • Digital Experience Architecture

Our first project is the DSIA™ Research Initiative.
