Information Architecture Redesign Project: BoardGameGeek
Bianca Crouse and Shelby Popplewell, 2020 Showcase
: This proposal outlines a user research plan and redesign of the information architecture for the website BoardGameGeek. Our proposed redesign seeks to meet the needs of current website users while creating a welcoming and easy to navigate information architecture for newcomers. The redesign will help the website grow their audience while keeping the users the website already has. Ultimately, the redesign will better allow casual and serious board game hobbyists to use the website as a platform to share board game information.
