20 Inspiring Examples of Single Page Websites

By / Jul 25, 2011 / Inspiration

Since we really like single page layouts and the last time we had them around was back in March, we decided to gather a new list to inspire you! We will show several different approaches to single page layouts – from minimal and clean ones to super colorful pages using parallax scrolling effects – there is certainly some that will get your attention.

    Not my style.
    I find, your selection is showing of a mixture of todays standards, “digital media designer” – school and minimalism. By this I don’t mean to rate down these designs, but to me they lack inspiration and creative concepts beyond those, todays, standards.
    As a web designer I kinda have to live in the future, no one is buying a website anymore, that, designwise, is outdated in a year.

    Awesome list and awesome designs…these websites are not only beautiful but also designed to perfection…

    I love the way they use only one page to get the whole point across without it being too cluttered or busy. My ultimate favourite is Bennett Feely, the colours and way your eyes flow down the page is designed to perfection. I love riot as well, especially the line design, its really interactive although I’ not keen on the choice of font.

    Cool interpretation. Riot, Dreams are made by pedaling………overall good impression.

    Nice collection of websites, if you get the concept right I think a single page design can really be effective! My favourite is the Drift.

    I love single page websites and my favorite here has to be Nudge.

    What can I say, I’m a fan of monochrome!

    Very good examples, my favourites are Bennett Feely and TM Designs, love how the dark dress is used on the white background.

    Nice post, nice inspiration, thanks.

    At the end I won`t define vertical or horizontal scrolling pages with a navigation bar as “single page websites”. For that my favorite is Sean Gaffney.

  • http://kevin-whitaker.net/ Kevin Whitaker

    Wow. I’m flattered to be on a list with so many awesome sites. Thanks very much!
