IA/UXD Services

Challenge was organizing content more effectively, creating effective information architecture concepts that better organized her Website.

Successfully implemented IA design concepts and solutions.

Great team to work on—project was successfully completed.

Due to technologies, non-disclosure agreements and confidentiality, not everything can be presented here.

IA Structure

Four main categories are included on every Web page in the Website. Of course, other links (ad hoc and local navigational systems) are included on every page.

A site map and email were added for greater functionality as well as allowing for fast communication between professor and students via email. As the information architecture concepts evolved, it changed original concept.

User-Centered Design

The squared boxes (shown in the wire frame mockup) are photos that show end users what she does in the classroom, teaching students. While this was a draft to show what the client desired, I advised her that the main navigational system should be placed above the fold.

The main navigational system incorporates rollovers with text links below, having the same photos on every sub Web page helps end users to easily identify with the section they are using on this Website.
