Perfectly placed call-to-action (CTA) buttons, full-screen banner image demonstrating the product application and various other crucial message conveying components that lets the visitors know the business sense of the company.
Bridgeline is a digital engagement company that won the 2015 web awards for best technology website. When you land on the site, you’ll see exactly why. Notice that the color scheme is inviting and anything but overwhelming. An orange call-to-action (CTA) button complements the blue color scheme while drawing the eyes to what Brideline wants visitors to care about most: their CTA. Plus, testimonials and client logos instill trust in the brand.
Mobile-friendliness also makes this site one of the best for inspiration this year. Take a look at the site on your phone or tablet, and you’ll see that it’s user-friendly across all devices. Since more people are on mobile than ever before, you’ll want to make sure your own design is optimized for mobile in 2016. Use Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test Tool if you’re not sure whether your site is optimized for mobile or not.
Mint is an excellent site to use for inspiration if you’re building a site for your mobile app. Their site is a perfect example of how to say a lot in few words and how visuals can strengthen your design.
Another aspect that makes this site shine is its site speed. According to Pingdom, the site loads in under three seconds. Faster speeds can mean more business—since fewer people will abandon the site—and better search engine rankings—since page speed is factored into the algorithm. Keep page speed in mind as you move forward with your site revamp this year, which can all start with finding a quality web host.
Evernote is another mobile app website to keep your eyes on. A smiling face on the home page helps viewers instantly connect with the site emotionally, and as you scroll down, you’ll notice that everything a new user needs to know is right on the home page in an easy-to-digest manner. Evernote also incorporates a hidden menu bar that’s becoming more popular as more people go mobile, so that’s something you might consider using in your design in 2016.
Logitech looks a bit different than these other sites, so it’s a good one to pull inspiration from if you’re not feeling the designs above. Bold colors help the site stick out, and simple navigation helps visitors find exactly what they’re looking for quickly. Logitech also uses a “card” design for their products. This trend is likely to continue, especially because it looks great on mobile!
Given Apple’s stock prices, you’d expect them to have a lot of money to put into their website, and it doesn’t disappoint. Apple’s home page highlights their best offers without trying to send you in too many directions. Plus, their product pages are eye-catching, featuring animations as you scroll, which helps set Apple’s site apart from the rest.
Apple’s competitor Samsung is another site worth checking out for inspiration. Notice first how their color scheme isn’t overwhelming and the boldest colors come into play where they want to draw the eyes most—to account details and feedback survey. With drop-down menus containing a second layer of sub-menus in the navigation, it’s easy to find exactly what you need without clicking through tons of pages.
Since Envato is a lesser-known company than some of those mentioned above like Samsung and Apple, they have to do more work to show who they are and what they do. They accomplish this with great copywriting on the home page, and the complementary testimonial helps put trust in their brand. Different color schemes on each page makes navigating interesting while giving each section its own flair.
PayPal does things a bit differently on their home page with an animated image. You’ll also notice that with minimal words, they can draw attention to their calls-to-action without demanding too much of their visitors’ time.
