Top 10 Examples of Most Creative Web Design

10 creative web design ideas

Creative web design can make a huge difference to user-experience and may make your site more memorable than the competitions.

The design of websites has been evolving over since the internet was first launched to the public in the early 1980s. Advances in broadband technology has allowed designers to develop bespoke websites with rich-media content, high-resolution graphics and slick animations. The increase in the number of users accessing the internet via smartphones and mobile devices has also led to further innovations in website design.

What is Creative Web Design?

But, this is all technical jargon right? What actually makes a website creative?

In 2018, the world of website design has seen a shift in trends and this continues in 2019 with developers moving away from traditional navigation menus, flat pages and muted colour schemes. Innovation is being seen across the industry in the increased use of:

  • Animation
  • Responsive Design
  • Bold colours
  • Unusual, bespoke fonts
  • Micro-interactions
  • Unique artwork
  • Asymmetry
  • Floating navigation

All these things, and more, are transforming the way we experience, and interactive with, websites. What’s more, the best designs are writing the new trends that other developers will be trying to copy.

It’s far easier to show than tell so, without further ado, here is our top ten list of the most creative web design projects with our reasons as to why they blow your socks off…
