The Landing Page Manifesto [Typographic Essay]

This post is the first in a series exploring the Landing Page Manifesto – which is a set of guiding principles for producing effective landing pages. The idea is to recognize the various elements required to address the complexities of conversion centered design, and teach it through the use of metaphor.

Each follow-up post in this series will take one idea from the manifesto and explore it via example and metaphor for greater comprehension.

    Fantastic. I just read the 12 Step Landing Page Rehab Program post you wrote and love the way you break down each aspect into actionable steps. This is a good visual to reinforce each step. Really good stuff!

    Thanks Tami. I actually started out with this one then it transformed to become the 12-steps, so yeah there's a pretty close connection.

    Brilliant. I hope all the graphic designers out there discover this page, and then start referring their business to real web designers!
