    1. DeEtte

      Great article & very practical. Thanks for all the tips – I’ll be thinking about them for awhile as we work on our website redesign. [But by the way, your photo under #2 is of the PARTHENON (temple in Greece), not the PANTHEON (church in Rome or church/crypt in Paris).]

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m
    trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please
    share. Cheers!

  12. Taylor Dean

  13. Another amazing blog post Peep! How the heck did you learn about all these laws and then apply them to design? Brilliant!

    Web designers would be wise to use products such as Microsoft OneNote and EverNote as a way to jot down any ideas they have. These programs are great for organizing your thoughts and putting them all in one place. It’s a great starting point when trying to determine how to build your site.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, i’ve bookmarked the page and will referring to it until it has been memorised!

  21. Good article. Next time you might want to have someone proofread it for spelling and punctuation. (That is, if you value “aesthetically and financially rewarding results.”

  22. jason404

    That’s the Acropolis, not the Pantheon (which is in ancient Rome).

  23. jason404

    …actually, the Parthenon to be more specific!

  24. Matthew H

    Superb article, bookmarked with a plan to read over and again to sink your musings in.

    1. Super agree!! What you posted and shared here is something is valuable to many web designers! Thanks a lot!

  25. Giulio

    The Occam’s razor part is incredible. 300% increased conversion, wow

  26. Azanka

    Great post but I would like to make a correction. Pantheon is in Rome and not Greek – In the photo this the Parthenon from Athens.

  27. Nicholas

    Thank you for a brilliantly concise overview and compelling examples. It all has that ring of unstated truth about it.
    Well done Peep!

  29. Chris Brown

    I like the information shared. Your efforts in researching such a good content is really appreciated. I like everything written but the important that taken my attention is the Law of Common Fate, which is really new to me. I am a web designer and love reading blogs. Keep sharing latest news about market.

  30. Great article, loved reading it. I think it will influence my future desings a bit, though I allready know about some things. Keep it up!

  34. Emilda Daniel

    Keep it up!

  36. Wouter Dieleman

    You’re a goddamn machine son.

    1. Michael Milligan

      Careful with the language, please.

  37. Himani Khanna

    Very informative stuff. You are way beyond than just a writer. I have never been so impressed before with the other articles. This piece must have taken a while to explore things. Very nice.

  38. Your definition of Occam’s Razor is not correct. It should read the simplest solution that contains the necessary components is better. Just because something is simpler doesn’t mean it’s correct. Otherwise, this is a helpful article with time-tested principles.

  39. DAS Realtors

    Thanks ! it is too useful and important for all of us. Great !

  40. Peep – Awesome post, one of the best marketing posts I’ve read in awhile. I took away a ton of new knowledge. Nice work!


  41. Ayesha

    The article displayed above is a complete package of theoretical knowledge sequenced through a very sophisticated manner by Sir Peep Laja. Especially for new learners like me . I must give an approval here as per a professional from the same field, that gestalt law is indeed very practical in website designing as mentioned above.

    Thank you so much sir for providing us this way great deal of knowledge . God bless you. Keep helping folk the same way you are doing. :)
    Best Regards
