Error pages are something really important and when I was putting this list together I noticed that many sites don’t give it the proper attention. I had a hard time to gather the ones you will see here. Many of them you probably already know, some are new examples, so check them out and start thinking about designing an error page for every new site you build. I believe that an user rather see a beautifully designed error page than see nothing… so keep this in mind.
In these days where we stay in front of our computers for hours and hours working, browsing around, reading our stuff and enjoying the wonders of the web, there is something we do really care about, content organization or, if you rather say, a good user experience. There is nothing better than opening a perfectly organized and readable website… a page where the layout invites you to browse the site’s content.
A while ago we published an article showing you 50 Inspiring iPhone Application Websites and today we proudly announce a list of iPad Application websites to inspire you. I was not able to find further examples to show you, but I believe that the ones we have here (34) are a good start since this beauty is just starting its journey and many people didn’t dedicate enough time to develop an iPad app or website yet. I have to say that the beautiful and inspiring elements from the iPhone websites list is still present here… the websites are elegant, well designed and indeed inspiring.
The great thing about web design is that we have an enormous range of styles, techniques and ideas to implement when designing a website. You can go from Super Clean and Minimal Layouts to Colorful Layouts, and you can use Huge Typography or Hand Drawn elements, as long as you keep your style and give your website your own personality. As illustration is somewhere in between those options and is something that can give your website a very unique touch, we decided to gather a selection of illustrated websites to inspire you.
Red is a strong and powerful color, it represents passion and other strong feelings. More than that red is an ‘attention driven’ color cause it always captivate the interest of viewers. In web design is not different, red is a color that can give your website a nice and unique touch. In case you think the color is too strong to use it in the whole page, you can use it only is some elements like reader, footer, typography, logo or so on. Combining red with white and other colors can also be a great choice.
Clean websites are awesome! We all love to appreciate beautiful, elegant, minimal and clean websites. Many people think that clean and minimal websites need to be white and need to showcase as less elements and colors as possible, and I always agreed with that, but that is not actually true. And to show you that is possible to have super clean websites with some nice elements and colors, we put this selection together.
A website can hold lots of information, so an important issue is to give the main info a special attention. I always like to check out the way some websites present their ‘hot stuff’ and I have to say that lately some slideshows are really getting our attention. They can show images, images and quotes, only quotes, ideas, icons… depending on the creativity of its designer, a slideshow can hold several different formats and information, everything to catch the viewers attention to some key information they want them to read. We gather here some good examples of slideshows to inspire you.
After showing you a list of Yellow Web Designs and one of Blue Web Designs, today is time to show you a list of green websites! I have to say that when we decided to go green I thought it would be easier to get a good list, but it was pretty hard actually, I’m not sure why, but green is not a very famous color in web design or at least I had a hard time finding inspiring and beautiful green websites to show here. The thing is that green, as many other colors, can be a very good choice to give your website a nice touch. Using it at the whole background or in a couple of elements, will give your design a cool colored touch.
We already showed here a list of Yellow Web Designs and one of Blue Web Designs, but today is all about black and white. The B&W combination is great, from photography to interior design to clothes, black and white is always a good choice. Here we will show you some sites that made a very good use of this duo… Beautiful, elegant and clean pages, you will notice that sometimes having no colors around is also a very good option. Some of the pages have a detail or something in colors, but their general idea is b&w.
