Improve digital design outcomes with better structure

Every digital product, service, and website has an underlying structure (often called “information architecture”) that supports the final design. However, most teams are unable to validate if their structures are sound. At Methodbrain™, we help digital teams improve and manage site structure.

Sound site structure empowers teams with key capabilities to improve design outcomes:

  • Enables systemic insights that are often hidden by complexity
  • Reveals key dependencies that impact strategy and design solutions
  • Connects business objectives to features and user engagement
  • Quantifies site structure to identify design risks and opportunities


Poor site structure complicates strategy and design decisions, and when unaddressed, it 1) only gets worse, 2) causes interfaces to fail, and 3) increases cost. Learn how we improve site UI structure and your team’s ability to design with greater clarity and better outcomes.

Enterprise-grade site structure diagnostics and workflow

At Methodbrain, we’ve created the industry’s first platform for managing human-centered information architecture complexity. Coupled with our managed service offering, we help teams reduce UI structural debt, and improve user and business outcomes.

UI Structural Debt

For every team member, digital organizations incur $8,000 of structural debt due to inadequate site structure.


Team members spend part of their time resolving structural issues. Methodbrain can improve structure-related tasks and inquiries by up to 80%. 

Cost Reduction

Methodbrain produces significant returns that impact usability and performance, design operations efficiency, and time-to-market.

We’re pioneering site structure, diagnostics, remediation, and managed services.


System-wide inventory of digital assumptions, concepts, and content to baseline structural inputs.


Heuristics and quantitative analysis to baseline site structure.


Information architecture science and modeling best practices to close critical gaps that impact site usability and outcomes.

Managed Services

Operationalized structural design and engineering to manage scale and deliver continuous value.

UI Structural Engineering 101

Objects in nature and those that are made by humans have structure. The same is true for application user interfaces. In this post, we describe UI Structural engineering and review its function in the creation of websites and other digital forms of communications, products, and services.
