Navigation, Labeling, and Architecture Components
Navigation is the way people will get around the site.
It is absolutely dependent on the Information architecture, but in a project it is done after the
is drafted. It will include things like:
in-page navigation elements (such as hyperlinks)
helpers like A-Z indexes and site maps
Learning Web Design
1) Global navigation elements are site wide, such as graphical navigation bars that appear on most pages in the site.
2) Local navigation elements appear only as a collection of pages within a larger site.
3) Supplemental navigation elements are secondary features that supplement the primary (global and local) elements.
4) Labels are classified as textual or iconic. A textual label is a word that can be either a literal table or can suggest a concept.
5) An iconic label is a visual image that looks like the thing it represents, such as desktop icons like "My Briefcase" and "Recycling Bin."
