Pageless design creates a uniformity across platforms where users are already used to scrolling content, interactive elements and intuitive navigation. The apps on our smartphones and tablets are leaps and bounds ahead of current web design standards when it comes to creating memorable and enjoyable experiences.
This is mostly due to their unique limitations which encourage designers and developers to come up with new solutions that don’t lean as heavily on outdated conventions (like pages) but on new technological advancements. This results in new kinds of interactions native to a digital environment; swipe gestures, pop-out menus, use of gps information, gyroscope aided movements, animations, etc.
In many ways pageless design can do the same thing for the web by offering a simpler, more intuitive user experience full of delightful web-native interactions. This can be accomplished by utilizing a design concept we call Responsive +. This will not only ensure that your design adjusts in size to any device but that it feels right when viewed on any device.
8. It’s Affordable
Finally, we come to the crucial point: the price point. Traditionally, it’s been quite an expensive endeavor for both businesses and individuals to create beautiful, custom websites. Not just thousands of dollars, but tens of thousands of dollars. Thankfully, with a pageless website that’s no longer the case.
Particularly with services like Impress, a beautiful one page site can be delivered in just two weeks and at a price point just under $5,000. Something you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else when combined with the other benefits I’ve listed in this post.
With pageless design we might actually see, for the first time, the democratization of beautiful and effective web design. Making it possible for anyone who wants one to have a website that feels right, looks great and gets results.
