    Very general question .... probably you will have better success in the general forum !

    hang on ....
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    Information Architecture

    Buzz,

    maybe this article on Webmonkey can give you some ideas: Information Architecture tutorial.
    It's geared towards a professional web site, but it sounds to me like that's what you're looking for.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    I've found the book Principles of Web Design by Farkas and Farkas useful, particularly since it focuses on design concepts rather than coding.

    look at other sites which are similar. See how they're designed, and what you like and don't like about it. Design the navigation on paper (if you want) and then make a simple working model on your computer and see if its easy to use. If it is, then carry on from there and decide what all do you need to make the site efficient and better looking (just html needed or graphics, php, javascripting, asp, ssi...)
