One Page Website Designs
Published: November 2010
One page websites allow for a lot more design freedom and escape the confides of user experience, bulky content and can push away the constraints of headers, footers and navigation. Similar to a poster or a flyer but with a lot more power. The use of animations and slick graphical designs can really create emotion. They are often used to promote products or events and with links to twitter, facebook and ‘buy now’ can really create a buzz about a product. They are very popular with Movies studios, App designers and Portfolio websites.
Here are a few I’ve noticed recently that have really stood out:
Film (strictly not a 1 page site but I love it)
The next site below I wanted to include for a different reason.
The design is really well thought out and original and looks great. But the site has fallen into the trap of not telling the user instantly who they are and what the sites about. A simple explanation at the top would have made this a great site.
I still don’t know what it’s about and left after a few minutes of searching annoyed. Give it a look and if you can figure it out let me know.
