I'm about to embark on a website re-design. I'm trying to get an idea of the tasks I should be doing prior to wireframing. The site is a large corporate site and the reason for redesigning is the client believes the site is hard to navigate, it's difficult to manage the site's content and the site doesn't effectively promote it's many sub-brands or show it's global presence. Since the site is already existing I believe one of the first tasks I should do is examine the site's content to get a better understanding of scope and quality.
- Content Audit
What other tasks should I be doing? Asking for existing user research?
