Top 12 Websites to Find Web Design Inspiration

Whether you’re a business owner, a blogger, or a creative freelancer, your website is one of the most important weapons in your arsenal.

While a variety of elements will influence the overall impact of your site, there’s no doubt that first impressions count for everything. As such, creating a winning design is pivotal.

Before jumping straight into the creative process, it’s imperative that you gain a vision for the look and feel of your website. A little research goes a long way, and here are the best places to gain that inspiration.

1

Pinterest

Pinterest’s scope for inspiration extends far beyond web design alone. Still, there’s no doubt that it is home to some truly inspirational designs. The simple yet responsive grid layout, combined with the plethora of boards and easy to use filters, makes it a great starting point. For volume alone, its influence on your creative output can be huge. Whatever type of site you’re looking to build, you will find something of use here.   

2

Dribbble

Presented as the “show and tell for designers”, Dribbble is a cool site that will provide insight into various aspects of the creative process. With no set ethos on style, there is an eclectic mix of designs for all website types. Whether creating a store, a blog, or personal portfolio doesn’t matter. This is a great resource to incorporate new elements. In turn, this can go a long way to ensuring your message is expressed in a creative and effective manner.   

3

UI Movement

Rather than focusing on websites as a whole, UI Movement picks up on individual pages. As a designer, you can look at everything from landing pages to 404s. Using this to your advantage means that every page of your site can look as good as the last, creating a stunning overall feel. For anyone wanting inspiration for specific parts to fit in with an existing site they’ve created, this is one of the best places to look by a mile.

4

AWWWards

The AWWWards platform is a great place to pick up inspiration from award-winning websites and designs. The pages are even categorised into “Site of the Day/Month” for easy navigation. Not only does this ensure that you gain ideas from aesthetically pleasing websites. It also enables you to see relevant products that are on trend. After all, there’s nothing worse than choosing an outdated layout for yours. If anything, you want to stay one step ahead of the crowd.   

5

Designspiration

Design Inspirations covers virtually everything from logos to business cards. However, it’s showcase of websites is particularly impressive. Not least because they tend to pick layouts that do something out of the ordinary. Whether it’s formal professionalism or a charismatic spark, you can pick up great ideas here. When looking to build a website that avoids overcrowding and utilise all available space, this is a great place to discover new concepts.

6

Abduzeedo

The name may be a little odd (it derives from the Portuguese word to be abducted) but Abduzeedo has been around for well over a decade. Aside from scrolling through the pages of website designs, the site can also encourage flair for mobile App design. Given our increased reliance on the mobile platform, this makes it a wonderful place to get inspired. Oh, and just because the name is Portuguese, it doesn’t mean you can’t read the website in English.

7

Up Labs

Up Labs curates stunning designs from a community of over 300,000 designers. Between them, they produce some truly magnificent work that can empower you with the insight and spark to enhance your own ideas. The mixed bag of pages cover various website types and also include individual pages as well as whole websites. From aesthetic to navigation, it’s a useful platform to have in your arsenal.

8

Divi Template Gallery

WordPress is one of the most commonly used website builders on the market, especially for the average person. The Divi template gallery showcases some of the best web designs that have been created using the simple platform. Those ideas can provide huge help as you look to customise the look of your WP site with stylish and responsive components. Making the most of the WordPress platform never felt so easy.

9

Web Designer Depot

The WDD doesn’t simply show boards and galleries. It provides articles and blog posts aimed at developing your ideas. It still showcases winning designs to create that inspiration, but the advice offered in those posts is the real charm. After all, you don’t just want to wow your eyes. You need to find design elements that can actively be used to your benefit as you build a website. Adding this research tool to your preparations is key.

10

Site Inspire

If you already have a rough idea of the vision and simply need some guidance for personality tweaks, Site Inspire is a great resource. The platform presents a host of stunning designs from all over the world. More importantly, the filters and parameters that you can set make it easy to tailor your search for relevant designs. Rather than scrolling through pages of unrelated designs, your time can be spent targeted towards ideas you can actively use.

11

Best Website Gallery

As the name suggests, the Best Website Gallery is a collection of winning web designs covering an array of subjects and styles. The crisp layout makes it easy to scroll through until you find great inspiration while filters can help narrow the field. The site also provides links to helpful external sources, ensuring you get a comprehensive look at the creative process. Whether it’s picking up a new colour scheme or dimension ideas, this service can be a great asset.

12

CSS Nectar

Web design can take many forms ranging from the easy ‘drag and drop’ to more technical ideas. For designers wanting to use a CSS design and content management, CSS Nectar is the place to be. Not only does the website present great sites, but there is a public voting on them too. So you can actively see what ideas are liked by the public. Transfer them to your plans while retaining individuality, and you’ll be just fine.
