Consider the loading time of your website when it comes to design

Designing a website can be fun. You finally get to put al of the ideas you have down on paper and then see a visual of what your end product will look like. Often people do get a little carried away with web design though and can over complicate it, this can mean the site starts to become confusing and over crowded, which many visitors find off putting.
You should also consider the loading time of your website. If a site takes too long to load, many people will leave and not return as they have not got the time or patience to wait. Not only this but the search engines do not favour sites with long loading times so you may find your site slipping down the rankings.
Images and videos can take a long time to load and slow the page down, especially if they are not optimised correctly. Any good programmer / designer will be able to advise you on this and suggest a sensible balance of graphics / text.
