In the digital world, every company has to have a beautiful and effective website. And while every company has different drivers influencing their design aesthetic, the common denominator between all website is that they need to present a professional image to the world that aligns with the central brand message, and thus connects with the intended audience.
Below are 8 Award Winning Website Designs (from the Web Awards) that you can use for inspiration for your new small business website design!
Contour Clinics offers a deliberately understated WordPress website design that is at once ‘on-brand’, while at no time sacrificing the User eXperience. A deliberately understated colour pallet allows the pictures to do the talking, putting the many and varied procedures on offer, front and centre.
Set up like an ecommerce store (but without the Shopping Cart), The Event Mill offers a delightfully chic WordPress website that at once makes the user feel welcome due to its crisp layout and masterful use of white space. With a wonderfully simple navigation structure, this site is a joy to use.
From the moment you get to the Gift Card Store website you know you’re in the right place to purchase some F.U.N! Driven by the WordPress CMS, and utilising the popular WooCommerce ecommerce plugin, this multi-coloured website design overflows with original creative energy, while giving a nod and a wink to websites like Red Balloon along the way.
Built with Microsoft asp.net, Legal Super commits to a bold and punchy website design that cries, ‘We are here for you – we are you!’. Forgoing subtly, the site design harkens back to website of the early 2010s in its tone; favouring content over form. Message over flashy modes of delivery.
The WA Police site is as subtle as a PR24 to the side of a perp’s head! Big, bold and brassy, this website shouts its message through a police megaphone via a wonderfully bold choice of colours, fonts and vector graphics.
Another WordPress site, the Wesley Collage site stays true to its educational and academic roots by parsing out information and delivering it in easy to find blocks of content, to better allow students and parents to navigate to the information they require.
Using the all-too-rare Kentico website CMS along with a Microsoft ASP.net framework, the Save the Children site never ventures too far away from the central branding or message that has stood the test of time. Bold, clean and easy to donate, being their ultimate design priority.
Harkening back to the ‘all-singing-all-dancing’ Flash websites of the late nineties and early noughties, the Golden Pipeline website provides hours of educational fun. Pushing the outer limits of the WordPress CMS, it shows that when you marry budget with imagination, the sky really is the limit.
