40 Inspiring Single Page Websites

Following one of the Web Design Trends for 2010 – One Page Layouts, I made this selection of some really cool examples to inspire you. I really think that designing a single page website is great to challenge your creativity, your ‘go straight to the point’ skills and your capacity to put everything you need in a single page and in a way that will get the user attention and interest. Here you will see some colorful sites, minimalist ones and amazingly creative ones. And you will also get the chance to scroll all over the place with others… so enjoy the list and choose your favorite.

    Damn this is awesome! I remember I applied to a single-page websites directory, when I was single-paged, never got back a reply, what a pity :) I think it was somewhere here: @onepagelove or minimalsites.com

    These are really beautiful designs, but as someone who has an odd screen size ( 16:9 ratio), none of the one page sites ever work on my computer. Just something to think about when creating sites like these.

    Wow very good designs. BTW between Art by Annis Naeem and Charlie Gentle you have mixed the pictures and the links, I think.

    Hey,

    great collection!

    But I think you mixed some headlines and screenshots up (see Tyrale Bloomfield – Basil Gloo).

    Confusing mixup with the titles between “Art by Annis Naeem” and “Charlie Gentle” though.

    This is a great collection! I’m going to share this with my class. I wanted to let you know that you’re missing an image for “Portfolio of Tyrale Bloomfield” which is throwing the titles,screen shots and links below it off.

    Some great stuff in here. But I ponder a philosophical question: Is it REALLY a single-page website if any of the links clicks to another page in the site? (For example, SocialSnack).

      January 25, 2010

      Chris, I wondered the same thing! The two examples that caught my eye the most, SocialSnack and Giant Creative, both had more than one page. Don’t get me wrong, the article still provided inspiration of some solid work!

    Gisele, these are some great looking one-pagers. I also recently completed a one-pager site showcasing the various biz I own. Do you keep a list of other posts you’ve written? Would love to take a look at more of your stuff.

    For a design centric visual artists… a single page web site helps those who need to look and evaluate on the go. I use it for my site and love it’s power for getting conversations and calls initiated.
