Last Friday (March, 26th), Henry posted an article with 30 Fonts Perfect for Vintage and Retro Style Design and I simply loved the first font of the list, the matchbook typefaces. By the time I saw it I could think of several good ways to use it in web design, print design on even other ways. I was so inspired that I decided to do a selection of retro and vintage websites for our weekly web design inspirational post. I really like retro and vintage stuff… websites, posters, print, adds, everything.
The color of our inspirational web design post for this monday will be brown! Last week, when I was putting together the 50 Yellow Web Designs to Inspire You selection I had the impression that my eyes crossed over really cool brown websites… but right now I think that it was only an impression, cause it was a bit rough to gather all this.
For this week inspirational post about web design I decided to gather some yellow sites for us! Personally, I like yellow in web design. And by that I mean that you can use yellow in the whole website or just in some elements of it – like heather, footer, typography, etc. Sometimes a cool combination between a neutral color and a vibrant one lead to an amazing result, so check out the examples we will show here and start thinking about using yellow for your designs.
After showing you A Showcase of Clean White Web Designs a couple weeks ago, it is time for us add some textures to our lists, so here you will see some websites that used textures on its designs. Textures are a great way to give a special touch to a website. They can be used in a specific part of the layout – the header/footer, for example – they can be used in the whole page or in many other ways you may think of. The thing is that textures are versatile, beautiful and stylish, so here are some good examples of textures usage to inspire you. And remember, the idea here is to focus on textures, not necessarily design.
Choosing the correct typography for your website is a very important part of the design process. And as a website is also a communication tool – a very powerful one – you can use the typography to help you on exposing your ideas! Using HUGE typography, for example, you will get the attention you want and your site will also look cool.
We already showed here great examples of websites to inspire you, from Clean White Web Design and Portfolio Designs to iPhone apps websites we delivered great doses of inspiration to help you getting new ideas. Today, continuing our mission of delivering inspiring websites… we will present a selection of dark websites.
One thing that many of the iPhone application websites have ‘in common’ is its beautiful and inspiring design. They simply look amazing. The colors are great, the typography is classy, the photos, spaces and reflections are astonishing. The websites are so visual appealing that it is very good to browse around to get inspired and also to find a cool app for you (in case you have an iPhone). And as I’m always looking around for inspiring sites, I found that making a selection of iPhone app sites would give us a great list! So here we are… with 50 samples of beautiful, classy, stylish and many times minimalist websites designs. Here you will find inspiration in many different subjects of web design – such as typography, colors scheme, textures, layouts, images disposal and so on. So sit back and enjoy these pretty inspiring websites!
We are always looking for inspiration, specially when it comes to web design. We just can’t get tired of browsing around websites to check out layouts, colors, typography, styles and everything else that a cool site can offer. At this selection I will show you some portfolio designs. Some of them you probably already know, others are new – some are minimalist, others are colorful and full of elements.
These days, blogs are all over the place and they cover almost all areas you may think of. A really great think about the ‘proliferation’ of blogs is that we can always find great design inspiration while browsing around them. They don’t need to be famous to have an amazing look, and we can notice than more and more people are designing great blogs! So here we will show 30 great blog designs to inspire you and also to give you several different perspectives from a same idea: deliver content to the web. I hope you like the selection.
