In 2021, it has never been more apparent that technological progress is accelerating. Every single day, we are bombarded with new apps, specifically targeted advertisements that seem to speak directly to our inner selves, and the constant feeling that we must “keep up.” It has never been more important for creators and designers to cut through that noise and produce something different. To be truly effective, a website must create a smooth user experience, of course, but it also must be unique and, dare I say… beautiful. Creating websites is an art.
So, where do designers draw endless inspiration from? Colors, shapes, textures, and patterns we see in nature, as well as fine art, architecture, and even printwork such as movie posters, for starters. But the biggest inspiration for all artists and designers comes from existing designs. We don’t want to spend countless hours “reinventing the wheel” when that creative energy could be used to improve upon something that already exists.
Our designers naturally have their eyes peeled for the latest and greatest web designs, and sharing with our readers is only a happy byproduct. We hope our list inspires a vision for your new website.
With its vibrant colors, elegant paint-stroke transitions, and perfectly coordinated photography, this site is every entrepreneur’s (and designer’s) dream! So feast your eyes – this is what can be done when a photographer, designer, and client conjure a united vision.
Payments of the future clearly require a website of the future, and this one covers it – from subtle gradients, to the smooth animations, to the glowing titles. This site is worth bookmarking for the typography inspiration alone.
We’ve given you bold and bright, but what about serious and sophisticated? You might expect a boring website from a Risk Solutions company, but that is certainly not the case here. Instead, the site creates an atmosphere that seems to engulf its viewers – a whole mood, if you will – and it does not fail to inspire those who want something polished, luxurious, and consequential.
Ylaw marries the perfect combination of professional and playful with this clean, modern website. Both the custom and stock photography have been carefully thought out and implemented to create a unique and memorable brand.
Feeling inspired yet? There’s plenty more where that came from, and new sites are constantly launching. We have no idea what the future will bring, but we can be sure that the second half of 2021 will bring even more advanced designs, so make sure to keep an eye out!
