Information Architecture

Information Architecture

 
 

Information Architecture is a broad term. When we look at the way that information is organized, we take into consideration the data, the way that the data needs to be accessed, how it will be maintained, and the frequency of which certain activities need to ocure. We drive this information down into:

  • site maps
  • wireframes
  • use cases
  • functional specifications
  • software architecture designs / UML diagrams
  • user interfaces
  • data topology, and
  • contextual relationships

 

As needed on a project-by-project bassis. For some projects, we also break down each design/functional requirements by its cost estimate, so that a project's scope can also be determined by what features are selected.

Wetake the time to configure our CMS systems, so that your experience editing your website is cake, and only relatively more complex than editing your facebook or blog page. Adding pictures is just a question of hitting an upload button.

To make things extra-clear, we also make sure that you only see the administrative options that relate to the type of work that you do, by turning off more advanced features [unless you need them or want them].

We have sites available where you can demo the system, please contact us if you would like to have an example of what the content-management experience is.
