Book Description

September 2003
This must-read text for all web designers delivers vital 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 equips the designer with the tools to deliver the goods.

Information Architecture is low on theory, high on practice. It contains practical examples, how-to’s, do’s and don’ts and ready-to-use templates, illustrating concepts, tools and deliverables that can be used immediately in real life by anyone responsible for designing web sites. Practical explanations and tips are illustrated with case studies from industry leaders like IBM and Microsoft, and clear explanations of the latest cutting-edge research from the academic world.

Readers can also access a web site where all the model templates explained in the book are ready for use, and a free sample chapter and free access to a sample templates are available.

4.0 out of 5 stars As the title says, it's for designers Nov. 14 2006
By Michael Betts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am a web professional, with a background in writing. As the name implies, Van Dijck's book is geared toward those with a need to know the basic ideas and practices behind IA, without requiring a great depth of knowledge. It would be useful for copywriters, designers, project managers, account managers and others who work with or must dabble in information architecture. Exhaustive it's not - I read 75% of the book in about 3 readings. But that's just about what I was looking for and it lays a framework for diving deeper in areas of personal interest. Kind of like good IA, don't you think?

3.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning, but not much useful content March 31 2006
By Junius Gunaratne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not surprisingly this book takes a visual approach to explain information architecture. The layout and design of the book is superb and there are lots of nice visuals that diagram information architecture processes. Unfortunately, there's not much to be said about the actual content of this book. I found it to be too simplistic with generalizations about the obvious (e.g. design for your users, not the business experts or developers creating the site). This book is for beginners with no background in IA or design. Try Information Architecture by Louis Rosenfeld and Peter Morville for a comprehensive overview of what IA is about--it's not as pretty though.
