This week I wrote an article on the iWeb blog about performance driven web design. This is a more in-depth of an article I wrote a few weeks ago on this blog called Speed is design.

Spoiler alert: Team work is vital.
A fast website requires a team effort where performance is put at the forefront of all decisions. Every feature or designed element has a cost to performance. It’s a balancing act between features, design and performance. As a team, we need to weigh up the pros and cons of each element and decide whether it’s inclusion outweighs the cost to performance.
