with Maria Giudice
User research and establishing measurable business goals provide the platform from which we base the design. The information architecture or site-structuring phase provides a solid foundation on which the redesigned site is built. We approach each web project by first understanding users needs and business goals through research and client collaboration methods. Users are then better defined through the creation of personas and user profiles. We'll create scenarios that lead to task flows and other design artifacts such as sitemaps and page schematics/wireframes.
