Here is my second design and i think my best design. Here i have been looking at various websites on the web for inspiration, and i have mocked up this one which i think its going to be my main design. This index page will have a bit of everything on like Jquery, some text boxes. Also i have decided that i will have the global navigation in header because as you can see from the other design, it looks more stylish for the navigation to be in the header because the user will automatically know where the nav bar will be when they open the page. Unlike having the nav bar on the left, right or on the bottom. Also to make a point none of these two designs have a nav bar on the right because if the user happens to minimize the page it will cut the nav bar off and that will not happen in my web pages. This is my final design because i didn’t really have any more designs to give to Information Architecture so Kevin said that it was alright to stick with 2 if i couldn’t think of 3.
Following on from my final idea, i have produced a site map that is my final template on which my website navigation will be based on.
Index – This will be the main page with all the links to other pages and basically introducting you into the website
History- This will display all the vital history of Liverpool Football Club
About Us- Details of website, admin and even maybe a contact form for feedback for the website

The Image below will show the first site map i have created for my project website that i am currently working. As the Site is still only being planned out this site map might change.
This site map shows how the back-end of the layout will be based on. The index page will be centralised as you can see with all the other pages being easy accessible on the page but as the user changes pages he can still navigate back to the index and all other pages related to the website.
