Information Architecture

The information architecture (or menu structure) forms the skeleton of a developed system.


  • list categories of users = personas,
  • analyze user tasks and list
  • all use cases,
  • map use cases to personas,
  • write names for the menu items using users language,
  • conduct card-sorting session with representative users,
  • create menu structure proposal based on card-sorting results,
  • evaluate (make prototype, ask users to find a specific item) and improve.

Expected result

An information (or screens) flow structure that could be presented as hierarchical tree or a flow-chart.
