Visual Complexity vs Prototypicality
Visual Complexity measures the amount of visual differences in your website such as website layout and font differences.
Prototypicality determines how representative the overall design is to your website. In short, it is the overall combination of design elements in your website that allows people to associate with your brand such as such as font consistency and color consistency .
It was investigated in an International Journal of Human-Computer Studies in 2012 (vol. 70-11) that most people perceived websites with high visual complexity and low prototypicality as highly unappealing.
