To make sense of the world, we're always trying to place things in context, whether our environment is physical, cultural, or something else altogether. Now that we live among digital, always-networked products, apps, and places, context is more complicated than ever--starting with "where" and "who" we are.

This practical, insightful book provides a powerful toolset to help information architects, UX professionals, and web and app designers understand and solve the many challenges of contextual ambiguity in the products and services they create. You'll discover not only how to design for a given context, but also how design participates in "making" context.Learn how people perceive context when touching and navigating digital environmentsSee how labels, relationships, and rules work as building blocks for contextFind out how to make better sense of cross-channel, multi-device products or servicesDiscover how language creates infrastructure in organizations, software, and the Internet of ThingsLearn models for figuring out the contextual angles of any user experience
