Jorge Arango is an information architect and a strategic designer. He abandoned his work in (building) architecture to launch the first web design consultancy in Central America after witnessing the then-new World Wide Web in 1994. Since then, he's created information environments for a wide spectrum of organizations, from small nonprofits in underdeveloped countries to Fortune 500 enterprises. Information Architecture: For the Web and Beyond (2015), the fourth version of O'Reilly's famed polar bear book, is co-authored by him, Louis Rosenfeld, and Peter Morville. He's also the past president of the Information Architecture Institute, and he travels the world speaking and teaching about design leadership.
Jorge lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and three children. Jarango can be reached at [email protected], or you can follow him on Twitter at @jarango.
