When I started doing IA for agencies, it was definitely “small IA”, and I had the JJG diagram printed and taped up at my desk for quite a while. I still feel like organizing information, developing the conceptual picture of what the data “looks like” for consumption, and all those IA tasks are really my bread and butter. I enjoy it. And with “UX Design” being both trendy and chronically misunderstood, I often find that aspect of what I do minimized.
