Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.

Intended for web designers, this text delivers information on how to employ information architecture to create intelligent sites that produce hard sales. In today's drastically reduced web market, measurable business returns are essential to clients and this book should equip the designer with the tools to deliver the goods. It is low on theory, high on practice, containing practical examples, how-to's, do's and don'ts and ready-to-use templates that illustrate concepts, tools and deliverables that can be used immediately in real life by anyone responsible for designing web sites. There are also case studies from industry leaders like IBM and Microsoft and clear explanations of cutting-edge research from the academic world. An accompanying web site features all the model templates explained in the title and a free sample chapter and free access to sample templates.

Review Text

  • By Darren Azzopardi on 18 April 2016

    Although it's rather old now as I write this review in 2016, the points mentioned and raised still carry a heavy meaning. That spending the right amount of time collecting, reviewing and researching information to put on a website is paramount.The website examples used, such as those in the case studies are old which is as aspected but the text to support these is where the gems are found. You'll get an idea of the structure, of what to do when you take on a project and implement the authors suggestions.The book is very nice to look at, visually big and bold images with the text being the right size to read. With each section mentioned in the author provides further reading material. He also provides a sense of reality because you wont be able to perform each of these steps on a project because it comes down to the websites budget. But encourages a degree of user testing should be taken, which is something I highly recommend. Also that if you're the only person in a company looking after the site then it's also about managing people, as each colleague has a different need/desire to even take part and to gain.I've been designing websites for a while now and none of this is particular new to me, I wanted to have this on my shelf. If you've been designing websites and you know zip all about information architecture then grab this book as a quick primer and a quick slap around the chops from me. Why? As a designer you should know these things, because a 'designer' is about providing solutions. The title should be called '.....for Coders' ...the book either misinterprets the meaning of the word 'designer' or it had to different connotations when the book was originally released.The isn't an overwhelming book, which is a good thing, it lets you pick parts to visit. Then it's up to you to find out more using the authors additional reading support.Now go forth and be a better web designer.
