Responsive Web Design At Artifact Conference : Slow Loading & Bloated As Design Flaws

Responsive Web Design At Artifact Conference : Slow Loading & Bloated As Design Flaws | Design Revolution | Scoop.it

Last week, Jeremy Osborn, Academic Director for Aquent Gymnasium, had the chance to attend the Artifact Conference. Here are his key takeaways.

Marty Note
This Artifact Conference looks interesting and worth checkout out (http://artifactconf.com/ ). I love this quote from the Responsive panel at the conference in Providence, RI:

"On the other hand, responsive design is forcing companies to prioritize site performance. The consensus is that slow-loading and bloated sites are just as much of a “design” flaw as confusing layout, clashing colors, and the rampant proliferation of typefaces on page. "

Most designers focus on how to accordion a website so it looks good on any device. The real challenge is deeper. How do we architect "less bloat"? How do we design information to be lean and responsive?

Couple of things I've noticed include:

* Building stories via visuals and rich snippets.
* Taking advantage of the swipe and spin options on mobile devices.
* Creating easier to understand backend functionality.
* Using a LEAN or MEAN filter forcing messaging to get to the point FAST.

The SEO and engagement benefits of the second half of responsive design - the information architecture half - are enormous. We know that as engagement goes up so do our site's heuristics and the "new Google" loves more time on site, lower bounce rates and other "engagement metrics".

The "Responsive Challenge" for designers is to realize more is involved than look and feel. The very core of our communication must be reviewed, reevaluated and changed to be leander and more responsive too or we design dissonance in. Confused customers do many things converting is never one of them.

Responsive & Web 3.0
Put aside the SEO benefits, creating responsive design is beyond important because the future is about having your content look great no matter what type of devices is receiving.

Responsive design also forces a new framework on your content marketing THINKING. Your content marketing begins to get away from the static and more toward the dynamic.

Since the future of web design is dynamic making this move now has many benefits.

Responsive website design as an approach is still quite new and it can be difficult to imagine the many new possibilities it offers. Here is some great inspiration!

Marty Note
At first responsive design seemed like a constraint. Now figuring how to build a content tree from mobile first adds speed, beauty and cool to whatever it touches (at least in my mind). As we've discussed before, mobile is NOT about the phone. 

The phone is the game console, but the real mobile differences are in how you organize, tag and structure data and its presentation. Responsive design, being platform agnostic bia an accordion-like flexibility, influences the process of digital assets and in a good way.
