This week’s pick: Treejack by Optimal Workshop. Let’s face it, information architecture (IA) is paramount when it comes to designing cohesive user experiences. As designers, we tend to employ several methods that help us structure the data in a truly meaningful way, but what we usually lack is enough evidence to back the sitemaps, menu structure, and general IA well. And this is where the tool like menu tree testing Treejack comes in hand.

In the video, I’ll show how I’ve to test your new information structure ideas and menu hierarchies that need improvement in a few steps. I’ll also use my own blog as an experimental ground to better understand how designers like you engage with my website, how they navigate and find the information I want to surface and more.

Note: we’re not affiliated with the tool makers. It’s just a great UX tool you should know about.

In this new weekly UX design, user research and product design tools series I’ll share some of the best picks I’ve encountered to date. You’ll find out about the best apps, extensions, websites and other helpful tools.
