Your design has 500 milliseconds (or 0.5 seconds) to help users form an opinion about your website, and whether they will stay or leave
(Lindgaard et al 2006)
Visual design is so important to provide support to your underlying user experience. But on it’s own, it’s not enough. At the heart of a design is the user experience. You need both great visual design and great usability to achieve excellence.
A disciplined and judicious use of graphic design so that user experience leads the process and visual design adds beauty to a solid underlying interface. This is important to avoid the classic mistake of creating “eye candy” with a poor underlying experience, otherwise known as “putting lipstick on a pig”.
- Keep UX and Visual design under the same roof, so that each discipline does not go off track.
- Use Visual Design according to best practice, at the end of the UX planning phase.
- Leverage our superior understanding of usability to deliver a compelling visual design.
