5- Texts: When you touch diagramming texts, READ THEM FIRST. Think about how someone with less interest than you, could take a look. Another thing that is helpful is the width of the texts. Often there are websites with their texts running from end to end of the page. How can you read that? Better try their texts are kept in a width of 400 pixels, or at least one third of the screen.

6- More color and graphics, fewer images and effects: The line art, vector shapes and color plane carrying wonders with the web. To be clear, if your designs use more Freehand Photoshop is sure that your page will load much faster.

7- Text and graphics: no, never, insert text into a graphic. Text is text. The graphics are graphics. Do not confuse them.

Then, put all their efforts so that what you want to display on a website appear immediately, and interesting way.

9- Draw-simplify-go that matters: You have 30 seconds to load a page ALL in the user’s browser. Perhaps least 15 secs. BE FAST!
