In essence, a unified brand identity with website design refers to the elements that make a website credible, consistent, and reputable. In order to fully understand why website design is so important it’s best to take an approach that breaks things down analytically and emotionally in terms of what users see as good website design. It is not an oversimplification to say that good website design is important because it affects how quickly and easily visitors can find what they are looking for. In this regard, websites are either frustrating or engaging. To look at its importance on a more aggregate level, good website design engages visitors on a number of emotional levels, which is the first step to converting them from a visitor to a buyer.
Just as website design and usability go hand in hand, so too does website design and content. This is because it takes a quality website design to engage visitors enough to read the content.
The business’ core message and unique proposition are all part of an integrated website design that both satisfies the human eye, provides a unique proposition, and intuitively guides the visitor where they want to go. In short, the importance of website design couches the most important elements to a business’ goals through holistic and transparent SEO and branding that leads to high conversion rates.
Navigation and accessibility are subsets of usability, which is itself a key ingredient in good website design. By bringing all of these elements together, successful website design provides a unified, consistent and intuitive experience for the visitor. This keeps them engaged with the right information at the right time presented in the right way.
Although a website’s design is not the same thing as a business’s brand, it provides a cohesive branding platform that reflects that brand in a unified way. Website design requires balancing quite a few elements in just the right way to build trust with the visitor. That trust will ultimately lead to greater conversions, more loyal customers and a stronger business and bottom line.
