Web Design for Generation Z

Web Design for Generation Z

Hot on the heels on the millennials comes Generation Z, who spend a massive 10.6 hours a day consuming content across various devices. The figure was published by Adobe as part of a recent report into the content-consumption habits of UK citizens.

1,000 UK consumers were polled for Adobe's new report. Here are the key findings:

  • UK millennials spend 8.5 hours a day consuming online content
  • The UK average for content-consumption is 6.9 hours a day
  • The most popular way to experience content is via a mobile phone: millennials spend an average of 5.2 hours a day using a smartphone, rising to 5.9 hours for members of Generation Z
  • 54% of respondents said they often used multiple devices simul­ta­ne­ously, with 1.8 devices being the average
  • With the rising amount of 'fake news' and clickbait, 77% of Brits are more cautious of the content they share with friends
  • 46% said that well-executed content inspires them to make a purchase
  • 21% said that well-executed content would encourage them to subscribe to an email database
  • 49% said that badly-written content is an issue, with 71% of people saying that such content would prevent them from making a purchase

John Watton is the Senior Marketing Director for Adobe EMEA. Commenting on the findings of the new report, he said, “Whether it’s across social, online, blogs, or email commu­nica­tions, branded content has to be well-designed, optimised for the device, and offer a genuine experience that goes beyond selling products. Brands that succeed will drive customer acquisition and loyalty; those that don’t will see customers swipe their screen in search for content that offers them a better experience.”
