Site structure

Large websites are complex information environments that are constantly growing as new pages and resources are developed. To be effective, they must accommodate a variety of information retrieval needs and techniques.

With card sorting exercises and task-based testing with page mock-ups, Web Usability can help develop the information architecture for a site in a cost effective way.

Good information architecture can set the groundwork for an effective site.

We can help you:

  • Clarify the aims of the site and balance the needs of the organisation with those of site users.
  • Identify how users will find information on the site
  • Design effective site navigation systems and labels
  • Specify the content and functionality of the site.

Most sites are multifaceted and non-linear, so there are many ways information may be categorised and presented. Web Usability can help you determine the most appropriate Information Architecture for your site.
