Last year, we published an article titled ‘3 Great Websites and Why We Like Them’. 12 months on, website design is hitting an age of flooded themes, template modifications and tired ideas. But that doesn’t mean it’s doomsday. 2016 is a year that is also seeing webmasters recreate the scene, with some breath-taking examples of innovativeness and aesthetic mastery. Here’s our list of 5 Amazing Websites for 2016 (so far), and why they impress us.

 

1. iFly50

iFly50 have combined the staggering beauty of a see-through, textured silhouette revealing a stunning landscape with the mesmerising factors of simplicity and movement. This home screen represents all that is good in modern web design, and shows how refreshing existing ideas can result in amazing effects.

 

2. 2amMedia

As with iFly50, this site’s landing page utilises dynamic footage to create an atmosphere of vibrancy that stays with the user throughout the journey. On top of this, the joy continues past the first screen, with each scroll delivering a new, intuitive display that encourages discovery. After clicking through to the rest of the site, you’re greeted with a grid layout (we’ve all seen them) that somehow seems a lot more than the grids we’re used to.

 

3. 7mml

An important part of website design today, when internet users have seen everything from straight code to pictures only, is to create a new ‘activity’ (or User Experience) that engages your audience. 7mml have done this through a simple click-and-drag element on their parallax scroll. It’s full-screen, beautiful, and just that little bit different. Once past this stage, the post pages turn into a cascading post of intertwining imagery and text that dazzles as much as it absorbs.

 

4. Guillaume Bouvet

We should preface this one with ‘it might not be your thing.’ Guillaume Bouvet have created a website that’s so unexpected that it can take some time to get used to. It’s every move is a jigsaw puzzle which, on some other sites we’ve seen, doesn’t work out so well. But there’s something about the fluidity and confidence of this design that makes for a more desirable effect.
