Beguiled by Design‘s first website was designed, coded by hand, and built in 1996, and the technology has rapidly evolved since then. While print has changed slowly over he centuries, web design has moved at lightning speed. In the early days of the internet, there was a massive design chasm between the screen and the printed page. That chasm has narrowed, thanks to technology. However, web design requires a different psychological approach than print design. Engagement period is much faster — a matter of seconds versus minutes to win a viewer’s attention. Web design must interact in several key areas: user experience (UX), functionality (loading time), ease of navigation (the user must be able to find what they need quickly), usefulness (the user must be able to find what they came for quickly), and lastly, an appealing design. All of these elements must be present in order to initially engage a viewer: and the current research states that a website has fewer than five seconds to win a viewer. Beguiled by Design takes pride in making sure all of these elements are met.
