Everything needs to begin with a goal of creating an amazing experience for the user. Without great UX even the fanciest, most beautifully designed, website will rapidly drive users away and fail to convert sales.
An effective website should be beautiful to look at without drawing attention to its own beauty. Users should not notice your site's design. Rather, they should feel comfortable in its style while having their focus anchored on the content.
Performance drives a great user experience and snappy performance is driven by simple, optimized, development that prioritizes the shedding of unnecessary elements to ensure a robust and scalable structure.
Elysium was designed as a content management alternative to tools such as Wordpress. As a simpler, yet more flexible alternative it allows for a faster development cycle while making content more user friendly to update. Elysium benefits from a lightweight core structure that empowers it to deliver, smaller, faster loading webpages than many other professional content management systems.
