Building Intuitive Digital Spaces with Information Architecture

Without information architecture, a website is a content black hole. But, with organization, labelling, and clear channels, you have a structured solar system.

Your website’s information architecture (IA), is its backbone. Essentially, it’s your sitemap, your navigation, your menu systems, your content layout, and the pathways you create to direct users to new pages. The goal of developing an optimized IA is to create intuitive and user-friendly website experiences for your audience. In turn, you’ll be creating memorable ventures that translate into positive usage metrics, brand awareness, brand recall, brand trust, and conversions.

Let Your Users Find What They Need, When They Need It

Optimizing your IA comes with a host of benefits. From improving your user experience and increasing your engagement potential to improving your search engine optimization (SEO), simplifying content management, and enhancing brand perceptions. 

One of the starting points for optimizing your site’s IA is to audit and re-design your navigational structure based on the three pillars of IA:

The way users interpret the words they read. Hence, the importance of using familiar ontologies and syntax to promote ideal user journeys.
The schema of words with their hierarchical context, most effective within the main navigation where it’s advised to keep between 3 and 7 options.
The journey mapping for your users. You want to capture and maintain their attention by keeping their user journey to 4 clicks and under.
