Many times clients want to have many objects on their first page. What ends up happening is the visitor becomes to distracted by all the clutter and does not really know where exactly to go. That is why good design leads the visitor where they need to go without flashing neon arrows. Balance needs to be kept in mind because if the balance is off the design will not look right. However, some visitors may no know what exactly is wrong. They will just get the feeling it is not designed well in which could aggravate the users. Remember we want to keep the visitor happy and that includes keeping the design pleasing to the eye in all aspects.
