Though we began as an architecture and interior
design firm, passion and necessity have recently sent us into
the “information architecture and design” business.
This activity stems from and combines our internal and external
operations, project management systems, sales and marketing processes,
and communications and industry relations. From our own need for
these services, we have begun to offer them to our clients.
Information Architecture is the architecture of information;
it is the art and science of designing and building structures
for information. It involves analyzing and blueprinting the ecology
of information within an environment for maximum usability. It
begins with a well-defined blueprint, travels through intense
client consultation and creative team coordination, and ends in
top-quality deliverables that facilitate the success of the user’s
We think of information design as having three crucial aspects
– structural, organizational, promotional. Structural elements
involve the primary architecture of the system to allow for ideal
security and flow. Organizational elements dictate how you interface
with the system to most easily implement your ideas. And promotional
elements are those that face the outer world and “sell”
your message via our informational designs and marketing components.
We can help you achieve perfect results in all three of these
areas. We have arrived at our solutions through personal use within
our own business, so we know how they apply to real business needs
Our team consists of four web-based divisions: The Design Guy
E-magazine, My Design Guy Portal, the Project Management Console,
and the Client Project Interface. Each of these is designed to
satisfy varying objectives and service requirements.
The Design Guy E-magazine “raises the bar” as an
imaginative way to display and share creative design solutions
with industry peers, other design professionals, and prospective
clients. It is a model for the kind of promotional vehicles we
have designed and can design for other businesses. An E-magazine
provides a simple and concise way to establish yourself or your
business as an industry leader.
Our Project Management Console organizes all of our internal
communications, projects, calendars, tasks, clients, and even
generates “real-time” reports. The console is completely
Internet-based and is accessible via secure access codes globally
on any computer with an Internet connection. We have created the
beta.mydesignguy.info site for testing. You may log into the system
with the username: designguy, password: designguy. Give it a try
and see what color television did to black and white!
The communications and documentations needed to manage each project
are imperative yet tedious business activities and components.
We have created our Client Project Interface to work seamlessly
with our management console. The Design Guy tracks communication
exchanges, document exchanges, posted files, discussions, concepts,
and schedules with the client all in one place! Each client enjoys
the exclusivity of having their very own web site accessed via
a password and protected with a 128-bit encryption for security
This Information Architecture has created a virtual labor force
that works 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It facilitates and
manages our internal and external operations, project management,
scheduling, tracking, client interface, sales, marketing, communications,
and industry relations.
Adjoining to these informational architecture and design components,
we offer Internet, graphic design, and text and promotional services
to our clients. We can help you design a website, build and manage
a website, create text for that website, and create promotional
newsletters for that website so that your visitors are constantly
kept up-to-date on your activities. If you’re looking to
build a business or a community on-line, we can assist you in
realizing your ambitions.
The Design Guy team offers business solutions to an emerging
world of new entrepreneurs who will lead us into the 22nd century
