Speed the measurement of how one object moves in relation to another.
- Parallax websites work by having objects moving at different speeds.
- You can see things moving fast compared to others, hear the speed of something coming towards you, and feel the speed you’re moving if you’re on a bike.
When the element is used to portray time, it could be informational. Or, when it is comparing different speeds, it could be just giving out that information.
The hands of a clock move at different speeds to indicate time:
- If speed was used for directions, maybe it could indicate how fast or slow a route would be.
Speed has varying amounts of importance to different populations. Some cultures value speed, while others might value slowing down and enjoy the experience.
- If users are competitive, an indication that others are going faster (towards “the finish line”), might encourage them to speed up.
