Devilish Design

Graphic design is currently a $43.4 billion industry, and it has risen in value thanks to the role logos and visuals play in audience persuasion and information consumption. 

92.6% of people say visuals are the number one factor influencing purchase decisions, and the average person has been found to spend around 6.4 seconds focused on a brand logo when visiting a website. Graphic design also helps you stand out from the crowd; statistics say that 73% of companies invest in design services to support their brand’s differentiation. 

(Spider) Web Development

Visiting a website is a lot like trick or treating: either you go on a site and get treated to what you’re searching for or you get tricked by a poorly designed site. 

It only takes users about half a second to make their first impression of your site. 61% of users don’t find what they are looking for right away move to another website to find it. Your site also can’t be a zombie; digital marketing statistics report that sites with load times longer than two seconds increase their bounce rates by 50%.
