Think carefully before choosing a gallery-style layout for your website. For example, it’s certainly not appropriate for sites that really ought to be read sequentially. Portions of your website – such as portfolios, links or even notebook-style blogs – can be a great place to explore the technique, but use it with care. If your content isn’t easily scannable or lacks clear and quickly received content then you’ll end up creating stumbling blocks for your visitors. After that, they’ll just leave with a sour taste in their mouths.
