Web Design Standards

What are Design Standards and How They Work

Creating a website design you need to remember that certain patterns or web design rules have been already developed. This is important primarily for new designers or those who have decided to create a site for the first time.

According to Google’s study, it only takes 50 milliseconds (that’s 0.05 seconds) for visitors to form a first impression of your website. Sad statistics, isn’t it?

The first and main goal of the designer is to make a person hold their eyes and stay on the page for further actions. Users can quickly rate anything based solely on emotional reactions and visual attractivness. The main designer’s task is to lure the user with at least one element on the page, because of which he won’t close the site in a second. Modern people who don’t even have any specific education in the field of design, feel the atmosphere of the site, the level of communication with the user and the overall appearance. That’s why you should follow some standard web design principles to make your website convenient and easy to use for visitors.
