Information Architecture is the foundation for a great web design.
IA is the structural design of shared information environments; the art and science of organizing and labeling websites, intranets, online communities and software to support usability and findability.
Also exists an emerging community of practice focused on bringing principles of design and architecture to the digital landscape.
Typically, it involves a model or concept of information that is used and applied to activities which require explicit details of complex information systems.
These activities include library systems and database development.
A good IA is incredibly effective, and knowing the basics of the IA process can save both time and money in the long run. Also, you don’t need to be an expert to use it to your advantage.
