Information Architecture

Create meaningful information architecture for better user experiences

A good information architecture (IA) enhances information access, relevancy, and usefulness, enabling your users to quickly and easily find what they’re looking for on your website or web portal. Based on our deep industry expertise and extensive information architecture experience, we research, organize and structure your information clearly and purposefully. Our process ensures you deliver an overall positive experience and enable users to successfully complete their tasks.

ENHANCE FINDABILITY in ia

Based on rigorous processes and industry best practices, we create effective information architecture that improves access and usability – solutions that reduce ‘information overwhelm’ especially for content heavy sites.

SCALABLE INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

We create robust, highly scalable information architecture to help you improve your organization’s ability to develop and maintain your content over time as your site grows and changes.

where to start

In information architecture, we begin by understanding your business goals, requirements, and vision information needs for your website or portal.

We then typically conduct card sorting research. Using open and closed card sorting techniques, we work with representative end-users to analyze and organize information into content groups that make sense to your customers.

Before commencing information architecture development we usually also conduct content inventories and content gap analyses.

TIMING
The typical duration of IA development is 2-6 weeks.

how we do it

Once we understand our users, tasks and content, we look at the content from both top down and bottom up angles to devise the best structure for the content.

We look at content management and conduct a content inventory analysis with a long term point of view to allow the information architecture to be scalable in the future.

We then architect how to structure the content of the site to best allow users to flow through their tasks.
