Let’s review them.

Myownbike

Inspirational Designs of the Year

 

Nike chosen series

Inspirational Designs of the Year

This website is the digital hub for a European snowboarding event series initiated by NIKE. We had much fun designing ’cause we mixed styles persistently – whether with typography or hand-made scribbles. Even developing a dynamic site in HTML 5

 

Jenier World of Teas

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Jenierteas’s website is a good example of perfect design.

 

Replenish

Inspirational Designs of the Year

This interesting and clean design appropriately uses colors. The introduction block with descriptive icons and link to video just below it are clearly visible.

Team Treehouse

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Sometimes there is no need to include extra, useless information on the page. Teamtreehouse’s site uses minimal design, incorporating only essential information into their clean and elegant design, such as how it works and testimonials from users. This example epitomizes the new and functional trend in minimal design.

 

Tao Community

Inspirational Designs of the Year
Initially this very creative and amazing website seems to be difficult to navigate, but the single line of text at the bottom is simply descriptive.

 

Yogi

Inspirational Designs of the Year

In this example, we can see harmony among the different parts of design. Colors, ornaments, and even buttons all share some similarities, which provides a sense of uniformity.

Personal websites—especially those designers—are always the source of new trends and innovative ideas.

In addition to its color scheme and well-organized content, this site uses typographical elements with different typefaces, weights, and colors in all sections of design to enhance the readability and attractiveness.

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! This site demonstrates how a simple design can be beautiful.

 

Agcchicago

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Agcchicago’s page length is greater than the usual length of single-page designs, but it cleverly compensates for this with a consistent and meaningful look and feel.

Medialoot

Inspirational Designs of the Year

In the field of commercial websites design, there are some must-have features: a call to action button and huge typography to catch and drive visitors’ eye to the important sections as well as testimonials and steps depicting the main process.

Gesture Theory

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Gesturetheory showcases minimalism in all aspects. Both the contents and color scheme give users a sense of minimal design. On the other hand, the slider-based structure of site also takes advantage of minimalism—this time in using pages.

Fish Restaurant Charleston

Inspirational Designs of the Year

This design could be regarded as a pattern for such a situation when there is no extra content on the site to share with users. However, essential information exists that visitors probably need, like the address and operation time.

Truetea

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Truetea’s layout is based on illustrations, and this conformity can be seen in different parts of the design, even in the social connection icons. The color scheme is very well-selected and harmonizes with the context.

Ilovespoon

Inspirational Designs of the Year

I’m not alone in this opinion that Flash is the number one tool for crafting innovative websites (even with the advent and improvement of powerful JavaScript libraries). However, this doesn’t mean that every flash-based design is a good one.

The Gifts Project

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Layout and design aren’t the only important features for commercial websites; others include a descriptive introduction, video demo/intro, and listing features of product(s).

Beanstalk

Inspirational Designs of the Year

As with the previous example, this is another well-organized business website. The above-the-fold design here is very notable.

 

Column Five Media

Inspirational Designs of the Year

This good example of design provides a page full of useful information despite having small amounts of content. This illustrates a realization of clichéd theory: less is more.

This interesting, creative, and beautiful design makes use of a relatively unusual layout compared to most designs out there, making this beautiful design seem effortless.

This website is included in this collection because of its simple and clean design.

Inspirational Designs of the Year
Keep in mind, whenever you put your creative ideas into practice, do your best to guide users as this will definitely increase usability.

Mark Strauss

Inspirational Designs of the Year

This year I found many designs that used a human picture (portrait) in their layout—an unprecedented tendency. Mark Strauss’s single-page portfolio is one the most creative and best designed examples.

 

DanielCrisp

Inspirational Designs of the Year
2011 was full of representations of designs that showcased HTML 5 features and designers’ abilities as well.

Joshua Sortino

Inspirational Designs of the Year

As previously stated, designers’ websites often serve as inspirations for others because of the novel ideas they incorporate into them. Joshua Sortino’s website uses interesting ideas and an inspirational layout.

 

Nathan Rafter

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Another common trend nowadays is parallax design. Of course, such sites are usually well-suited for portfolios and personal use.

Deep Time

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Unlike others in this collection, Deeptime is in fact a web app or, as it implies, an interactive infographic.

BrixiaExpo

Inspirational Designs of the Year

In this single-page website we are able to see several UX design patterns and techniques that are skillfully mixed together. The major factor in this design is the creativity of its designer(s).

 

Bronco

Inspirational Designs of the Year

This website demonstrates that we do not need either complex, strange layouts or several color schemes to design a great website.

RavenTools

Inspirational Designs of the Year

The Raventools website uses a medley design, something between a single-page design and a multi-page design. In fact it’s a single-page design, but at the bottom we can see some additional links to other pages.

Sumit Paul

Inspirational Designs of the Year

The only thing I would like to say about this website is that it is another highly ranked representation of modern minimal designs.

Analogue Baby

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Here, the illustrations on the home page are everything, and some of the main parts of design are integrated into it.

Html5cut

Inspirational Designs of the Year

Without a doubt, one of the five best single-page websites of the year is HTML5Cut. Everything is in its place, and no additional or useless information is included.

Jon Montenegro

Inspirational Designs of the Year

A text-based introduction page is the best description for Jonmontenegro’s homepage.
