SILS alumnus Luke Miller (MSIS '10) has been appointed information architect at the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) in their Online Products department.
Miller primarily works with designers, developers and content providers to curate the online presence of a major business source at WSJ. His responsibilities are extensive; he is responsible for creating wireframes as well as user flows for mobile and tablet applications that specify the highest level of conceptual structure. His team at WSJ consists of XHTML/CC experts, information architects and visual designers.
He says SILS prepared him for the position by challenging him to think differently.
"What I value from UNC SILS was the challenge to think in different perspectives--as a researcher, developer and designer--all the while maintaining an unbiased approach when assessing and creating interactions with the world's information," said Miller.
Miller graduated in May 2010 with an MSIS degree. He expresses a deep gratitude to SILS faculty and staff for their contributions to his new success. Congratulations Luke!
