Our Top Ten Sites for Design Inspiration
This weeks inspiration at Fueled. We have 10 websites that highlight clean, straightforward design.
Every week at Fueled, our London-based lead designer Rob Palmer shares a handful of inspirational websites with our teams in New York and Chicago. This weekly email acts like a virtual water cooler, encouraging us to congregate across time zones and discuss what brands and blogs are doing to push new trends in web design.
This week, we have 10 websites that highlight clean, straightforward design. We hope you know Spanish!
Jun Duffy is an affordable clothing brand out of New Zealand. Their site is minimal but attractive and playful. Scroll over the apparel and accessories and they do a little shimmy! Click on the item you're interested in for a close up shot and information about the product. Kiwis!
The Ordinary is a "fancy seafood and oyster hall" in Charleston, South Carolina. And the site is definitely fancy. While it’s not a particularly innovative website, you'll suddenly find yourself spending more time on it than you meant to. It's well branded and has some great shots of the well designed restaurant.
Ask any current or former restaurant employee and they most likely have nightmares about poorly designed point of sales systems. Wallmob looks like a refreshing change. The delightfully polished website has sharp photographs of the POS system and helpful videos that pop into full screen. The site flows perfectly. Bravo, Wallmob.
Activate Media is a digital design agency with a “with a passion for strategy, design and development for web, mobile and social media.” Many agencies talk a big game, but Activate Media's website makes you believe them. Their website is earnest. The design is basic but attractive. We love the animation.
Telegraph Creative is in a physical place; a place called Dallas, Texas. The design agency has "a passion for building gorgeous websites and memorable brands." The site is straightforward but definitely check out the featured work- they’re doing some really cool stuff.
The Mobile Index
"The ABCs of Portable Tech" is brought to you by the mobile developers and designers over at Mobext. Scroll though common mobile words and concepts, guided by American Sign Language Alphabet, and click though for a clear definition accompanied by a video or photo. It's good, clean design.
The Mobile Index
The Q Camera
Q Camera is a camera that automatically uploads your photos to the Internet. It’s waterproof and apparently attracts beautiful Swedes. The site features great full screen video and photos paired with information about the product. It's fun and interactive, albeit a little busy.
This responsive HTML site is a campaign for Norway’s Automobile Association. The goal of the website is to gather information about a typical commute in order to highlight the importance of a good infrastructure in Norway. Every survey should look this good! Definitely worth a look.
This French agency promises to make your next project "sexier, easier and more profitable." Big promises, but their site is pretty sexy. Their portfolio is enormous and while the site feels a little cluttered, it is ridiculously well designed.
¡Qué lástima! Se trata de un sitio web para una empresa cervecera en la Patagonia. Es precioso. El sitio Web está lleno de bien presentado información sobre la historia de la cerveza y el proceso de elaboración de la cerveza. Está bien diseñado e interactiva. Huh?
