The primary tenet of the RWS design philosophy is that the site's design should be functional, to ensure quick and comfortable access to the information the visitor is seeking; as well as visually appealing and quick to load, to ensure that the visitor remains on the site. The content must also be beneficial and engaging to help ensure the visitors return.
Repeated user psychology studies substantiate the philosophy that the keys to keeping visitors interested in exploring and returning to a web site are: short pages, combined with a logical structure and extensive cross referencing (hyper-text "links" to more information) and simple, yet eye catching graphics that are quick to load, along with easy-to-read buttons and icons
