Designing adaptive reusable components and pages

If your content is a mess, users can’t find what they are looking for. This means that people can’t use your website. The key to overcome or avoid this problem is a robust information architecture. I will teach you my step-by-step process to organise the content, and extract your full page information architecture and reusable components (at different sizes) from it. Learn how to save time by making the right decisions early, on low fidelity wireframes without the need for detailed mock-ups.

Attendees will learn my process to plan your content and information architecture to help build more reusable components. This process comes in 4 different steps, we will practise together:

  • Identify user steps, flows, and pages.
  • Content model: identify overview lists vs detailed pages, and what type of content users need on the detail pages.
  • Content priority: organise and prioritise this content, in a way that will help users accomplish their goals.
  • Modular components wireframes: use this content model, across the whole site, to build reusable components and pages that will work at different sizes and in different contexts. We will go all the way to low fidelity wireframes to share with your development teams.

You will work in groups on small information architecture exercises on my Miro board template. This process comes with a toolkit you can apply to any type of website, from simple sites to complex enterprise products. An empty version of that template will be available after the workshop so that you can re-use this method in your daily work.

We will use an online whiteboard tool: Miro. Participants need a laptop with a browser. It would be nice if you can also get familiar quickly with the tool before. You don’t need to create an account, but it would be better if you want to duplicate the template to re-use it after.

No prior knowledge is required. But some basic knowledge on user research and information architecture will help. Please note that we won’t enter into the details on how to conduct the research, though.
