30 Fresh Examples of Single Page Websites

By / Mar 14, 2011 / Inspiration

Single page websites have been a hot trend for a while now, and their popularity doesn’t seem to be losing any momentum. Going this route isn’t right for every project, but there are times when it’s fitting and just makes sense. For instance, when a site doesn’t have a lot of content, and you know the content won’t be growing very much in the future, it might makes sense to go with a single page design.

So what about your upcoming projects? Is taking this approach an option? If so, here are 30 fresh examples of single page websites to inspire you.

    These are some really great designs and I’m already using some for inspiration! The way some of these play with scrolling is really unique. The Campaign Monitor site amazed me.

    I love single page website design, but for SEO purposes I am afraid to implement it into my site. I just don’t know if it will let me rank high enough for the keywords I am trying to hit. Anyway, nice designs!

    • http://www.radoslavholan.cz Radoslav Holan

      You’re right, Chris. Single page designs can look even like more-page sites but there’s still one H1. From this angle of view it could be really a trouble but I think there are still some ways how to reach a good keyword ranks. It really depends on your needs. One-page sites are mostly used for some portfolios, maybe as nice microsites – and I don’t see problem in both cases with SEO…

    Was surprised to see the Arms website I designed getting an unusual amount of traffic this month until I saw this posts. Thanks for the inclusion. It’s funny how the jobs that take the least amount of time often get the most attention.

    • http://www.radoslavholan.cz Radoslav Holan

      It was same with me, lol. My own portfolio was on the last position of importance, so it got the most less time than other project. After this you have to think about how much time to invest on each project when time-less project have such a great success.

    The challenge with one page designs is delivering the message properly and above the fold at that. Excellent selection!

    Nice collection! Youzee would be my personal favorite.

    Those are all gorgeous. I wash there was a way to know who created those so designers get credit and new customers. Remember some time ago many sites would have “designed by” link? I actually found them useful.
