Use an interesting layout for your website
A simple yet interesting website will
create great interest for the viewers.

An informative and easy to read
website to engage the readers
attention

" Agree
From Harbeck, 2012
Studies show that people read information
differently on the web than they do in print.
o For example, website users only tend to read small amounts of
information at a time, and they are less likely to read all of the
information especially if the information is poorly organized
or if there is too much text on a page.
Users are less likely to read information that
they must scroll down to find. (Harbeck, 2012)
From Hufngton Post,
2014
The content should provide valuable and
useful information to the reader. It should
teach them at least one or two things or
answer at least one question they have.
This can be adjusted depending on where
the content will be published
o such as a bIog, vebsile, add or sociaI media) and
vhal lhe main urose of lhe conlenl is.
You have to keep in mind that real people
are reading this content, so it has to be
interesting; the content needs to catch
and keep their attention from the title to
the last period

The content must be relevant to the niche,
business, or company that it's being
written about

Summary of Article
Web designer put top-notch graphics and sound into
their web page
Only 216 colours can be seen through the screen that
is between 15 and 19 inches wide
And most of the viewers view the screen at the inches
wide, can only download at 28.8 kb per second
Size of the page should be cut down, if viewers need
to wait for the page to fully downloaded
We agree with the article that website speed is
much more important then those fancy images and
sound.
No matter how great the web design, impatient
visitors will not wait around for slow-loading pages
Website Speed
Compare
This vebsile:
IIIecla Inleraclive, 2010
Versus
This vebsile:
Rochesler Inslilule of TechnoIogy, 2011
Which attracts?

And

Which loads faster?
In terms of visual, 1st website is more visualize
compare to 2
nd
website

But less graphic website like 2
nd
website, do
load faster compare to 1
st
website
We know that effective web pages have to
look great, and images play a huge role in
that.

We also know that images play an equally big
role in degrading performance.

As you increase the number and size of
images on your pages, load time uniformly
increases (Pinto, 2013)
Some facts
With the amount of content out there on the web,
a page or site that loads slowly is going to have
fewer visitors than one that loads quickly (Kyrnin,
2014).
47% of consumers expect a web page to load in 2
seconds or less, said Sean Work, Minister of
Propaganda, KISSmetrics (Neeley, 2012).
Therefore, loading speed is very important for web
sites.
Common Causes
Of A Slow Website
Large volume of unoptimized Images

Too Much Fancy Flash

External Media Usage
And so, here is some tips to speed up your website!
To speed up the website
i. Web images should be small
ii. Use graphic more, design less
iii. Use special effects sparingly
Web Images should be... SMALL
Web images take up the majority of the
download time in most web pages.
But if you optimize your web images you will
have a faster loading website.
The one way that will improve your speed the
most is by making your graphics as small as
possible (Kyrnin, 2014)
Iiclure from Visia, 2014
Ior examIe:
As mention from the article, web page should be no
larger than 50K and not lesser than 30K.
The number one visited web site home page is
under 21k.
Example given is Yahoos home page which is 20K
# More Design

$ Less Grahic
Instead of one long page.
The more you separate your content the faster it will
download.
Iiclure from HaIf Crealive, 2014
Use Special Effects Sparingly
Make sure that the site needs the effect you want
Iul imorlanl ones onIy.

There are onIy lhree image formals for lhe veb: GII, }IG, and ING
Image Dimensions
Most cameras take photos that are way
bigger than the average web page can
display.
By changing the dimensions to
somewhere around 500 x 500 pixels or
smaller, you will create a smaller image
Color of Images
216 is the number of colors you have on a
web safe color pallet.
Use solid colors when designing your
image.
The more color you have in an image the
bigger its going to be.

For example
This vebsile consisls of more coIors for lhe image, lherefore,
lhe image size is bigger

This vebsile consisls of Iess coIor for lhe image, lherefore, lhe size of lhe

Iiclure from Rochesler Inslilule of TechnoIogy
Therefore,
a web page to be successful it
needs to download quickly and
look good.
WHAT IS
NAVIGATION
Ease of navigation is
one of the biggest keys
to the usability of a
website. If visitors can
easily find what they
are looking for they will
be more likely to stay
on the website rather
than leaving and
going to another site.
Navigation is the way
to guide users through
a website, so that they
know how much
content is available
and exactly where to
find what they are
looking for.

Your websites navigation should answer the
following questions :

Should a visitor randomly arrive at your
website, it should let them know exactly
what website they are at, and what they
are reading.

Another way to ensure the user knows where they are
is by highlighting the icons in a darker color as an
indication for the currently opened subpage, as
shown by Bloom Search Marketings website.

Iiclure from Ioom Search Markeling, 2014
75B s website, while innovative in their use of icons
instead of words, is confusing because while mousing
over one icon, the user might have forgotten what the
other icons are for.

People leave websites that they cannot


navigate. Thus, your website should be
understandable, clear and intuitive and
utilize the three click rule.

confusing. Aim for a maximum of 7. Sub-ages shouId be

It is helpful to let users know what they
have already read instead of having
them to open and check each page
over and over again. That way, they can
spend more time on the things that
matter.

Visiled Iinks shouId be highIighled in a
dierenl coIor, or underIined (since some
veb users are coIorbIind) afler being

Avoid making ages loo dee and hard lo

A very prominent example of using highlights to


distinguish visited websites is Google. By doing
this, users can save time instead of re-clicking
links.
WHIRI WAS I ALRIADY
Color should be one of your first concerns
when it comes time to starting your web site
design.

You should always use a browser safe color
when using solid color as a design element.

You should NEVER irritate the visitor with bright
colors.

OF COURSE!

a website

(IaIIasarl Web Design, 1996-2014)
Before selecting colors, we
ask the following questions:
A good number of designers
recommend using only 3 main
colors on your website. (Bowers,
2011)
Create a strong contrast between a
pages background and its text. (Avangate, 2004-2014)
Iiclure from MassimiIiano, 2013
Understand the meaning
behind different colors
RED: Energy, passion, excitement, power
Blue: Depression, spirituality, freedom, loyalty
orange: Friendliness, warmth, playfulness
BLACK: Power, elegance, secrecy, mystery
(Avangale, 2004-2014)

Website Layout
o Simple yet interesting web layout attracts
o Text in web should be concise however informative
Website Speed
o Too much graphic and design would slow down loading of webpage
Navigation
o Easy navigation to explore the web should be easily access
Colour
o Too much colour would affect negatively on the web, keep colours to the
theme
o Readable colours are important especially for text
Simplicity is the key to sophistication &
