There aren’t many sites as big or complicated as Disney World or other complex campuses that integrate a variety of buildings with the people who live, work, and visit there.

Wayfinding is the profession of crafting buildings, rooms, and campuses so that you can get to where you want to go – and many of those tools and techniques apply equally well in your site’s architecture to help your users get from “here to there.”

In this talk you’ll do two things:

  • See how to recognize the wayfinding clues that are embedded in buildings and applications you use regularly
  • Leverage those clues in your own sites to craft a wayfinding-enabled UX that lets your users find your content

What You'll Learn:

  • To include architectural cues in your website to help users find their way from “here” to “there”
  • To identify navigation scenarios and leverage navigation patterns that enable users to find what they want

What You'll Do:

  • Analyze the real world and websites to identify the cues that aid people in navigating through a site in the physical world and the web
  • Leverage navigation patterns to support typical navigation scenarios
