Navigation Card Sorts

The goal for these card sorts was to figure out how users would sort all of the information on the Yale School of Art website. Since it is currently difficult to find information on the Yale School of Art website, I thought this would help make sure that my redesign was easy to navigate.

My biggest takeaway from these card sorts is that users tend to categorize the information into larger categories like finances, events, and different types of people that would visit the site; such as current students, prospective students, and alumni. I also learned that users commonly categorize course/academic information together and information about visiting the school together. With these trends, I now have a good idea of how I can restructure the information on the Yale School of Art website to have it make the most sense to its users.
