If it is absolutely clear on what the website wants to achieve or what its objectives are, it will be easy to shortlist the emotions on which the design can be based.

5.    Working or sizes, fonts and placements: Which is the best way to put all the required information on the site so that the design has impact on all three cognitive levels of emotions of the visitors (visceral, behavioral and reflective)? What shall be size and number of images or graphics to be used? These are some of the most important considerations for developing an effective emotional website design.

6.    Simplification of workflow and ease of navigation: While talking of performance of website with respect to its functions, it is important that the workflow is simple and short. Practical and smooth navigation is another important consideration for better performance.

For this it is important that the element of attractiveness shall not overshadow the functionalities of a website and both shall balance in the right measure. Once a design is developed, it shall be able to generate emotional appeal for the visitors for a long time to come. Frequent changes to the design work contrary to desired objectives of emotional design.
