Make your design minimalistic
It stands to reason that, when you produce a bare-bones design, your site simply has fewer elements to weight. When there are fewer elements to weight, you can meaningfully increase the speed of your site.
It all depends on your viewpoint of how you approach site design. You can save yourself a lot of trouble from the very beginning by designing smartly to avoid harmful practices that affect your site’s loading speed.
Designers need to stick to the true theory of minimalism to come up with a site that’s light on its feet and doesn’t take forever to weight from one page to the next.
Minimalistic features are:
- A hamburger menu instead of a standard navigation bar
- More white or negative space
- Short web forms
- Smaller images
- Just one font instead of different types of fonts on your site
