About This Class

In this project-based class, you will design navigation and a home page for a moderately complex website. The goal of the class is to introduce you to the user experience design process and Information Architecture (IA), the discipline concerned with organizing information for the web. 

Along the way, you will be introduced to a number of IA methods & tools, including competitive research, design patterns, site mapping, wireframing & prototyping. You'll leave the class with a site map and simple prototype that you can use as a portfolio piece or as the starting point for a real world website redesign. 

This class is approppriate for:

  • User experience students
  • Those wishing to transition into a UX role from another discipline (dev, marketing, visual design, tech writing, etc.)
  • UXers building their portfolio
  • Project & product managers, designers and developers who need to understand UX design
