Information hierarchy: mapping content

Assignment 6: Hierarchy and organization. In this assignment the objective was to create clear hierarchy and to organize information so it was easy to navigate. These are the pages that best demonstrate those characteristics. A few are not free of problems but are worth showing.

The feature story in the upper left example needs to be adjusted so it is less crowded by the very dominant elements that surround it.

The lower left example is organized effectively on a five column grid. However it does not make the best use of the second color. And a heading above the features is needed.

The lower center example shows excellent hierarchy through contrast in scale, weight and color, but does not show a feature story prominently and so is less well organized than the other pages here.

Notice how the white space on four of the six examples provides those pages with an elegant appearance.
