    • Information Architecture Tutorial- Lesson 5
    • Visual Design Main purpose is to provide users with a sense of place. (Where am I on this site? What pages have I been to? Where do I need to go? Why am I even on this site?) The goal of this lesson is to take the site’s structure and map it into visual design.
    • Layout Grids Contents that describe web pages and defines structure and organization of the site: List all possible page types Have several different layouts and styles Create a rectangle, then block out elements of design: branding, advertising and sponsorship, navigation, page titles, header graphics, and footers including copyright.
    • Principles of the Grid  Branding- Informs users that they are still on the site, usually the upper-left corner.  Advertising and Sponsorship- Banners (Where does it go? On each page? Logos?)  Navigation- Must be consistent on every page
    • Sketches don’t necessarily need to representstructure or organization. *all images are from google
