7 Designer Websites To Inspire You in 2018

We are capable of designing any website you fancy, with all the modern features. Before you brief us to bring your brand to life, discover the web design trends, techniques, and tools that will define website and digital product design in 2018 — and beyond.

GIF Landing Page

Particle backgrounds are a great solution to performance issues websites run into with a video background. These animations are lightweight javascript that allow movement to be created as a natural part of the background, all without taking too long to load. They say that an image says more than thousand words, and a moving one certainly does. Similarly, particle backgrounds immediately attract the user’s attention, so brands can create a memorable impression of themselves in only a few seconds. Additionally, motion graphics like these are becoming more and more popular on social media, providing eye-popping leads back to landing pages.


As browser technology advances, more websites are moving from static images and finding new ways, like animations, to engage users in their communication approach. Unlike the particle animations mentioned earlier (which are generally large backgrounds), smaller animations are helpful for engaging the visitor throughout their entire experience on the page. For example, graphics can animate the user while the page is loading, or show the user an interesting hover state from a link. They can also be integrated to work with scrolling, navigation or as the focal point of the entire site.

Solid Colored Fullscreen Web Designs

Usage of solid colors as backgrounds for websites can really be a good idea, given that right color scheme is implemented on the website. There are lot of websites which use solid colors as their website background, and they have used them efficiently. Many of the web designers think that sidebars should be excluded from the websites and full-screen websites should be made. Usage of solid colors on a full screen website can be very useful for websites showcasing less information. These websites serve the purpose efficiently. We hope to see more of web designs with solid colors in 2014.
Video backgrounds are nothing new, but that doesn’t mean they make your website look outdated or less attractive. In fact, many popular brands and business websites such as Uber, Pinterest, Y.CO, and many others still use video backgrounds throughout their website designs. Why? Because it improves user engagement and conversions. Think about it. What better way to educate your visitors of a product, service, or the purpose of your website than through a video?


As publishers find new ways to deliver content in unique ways to their audience, I anticipate seeing storytelling on the web going more interactive using animations and videos to help illustrate various parts of the story. A great example of this is CNN’s most recent story about global warming and Greenland’s melting glaciers. As you scroll, it tells the story with different paragraphs that appear and disappear at times, along with the video in the background changing. Parts of the story are illustrated using maps or other graphics, which readers “pass” when they scroll down.

Unconventional Typography

While designing with a grid underlay is probably not going anywhere soon, more experimentation to grid layouts will likely continue into 2018. Unconventional and even broken grids will become more a prevalent design aesthetic as designers test the boundaries and find new ways to present unique content.

The Timeless Grid

The grid has been a longtime friend for photographers, bringing logic and convenience to the portfolio universe. The traditional grid-based structure allowed us to display a large selection of photos at once in a way that pleases the eye, and even more so on long scrolling websites. Worry not, our friend the grid is here to stay, it’s just about to take a different form. The shift has already started, but in the upcoming year we are going to see more and more of the new trend: unconventional, unique grid layouts. Breaking the common pattern with asymmetry, white space, and sometimes even “chunks” of text, creates a sleek ultra-modern feel that draws attention to both textual and graphic content. Have we already mentioned the word ‘engaging’?
