This is a list of the most inspirational and influential designs today. Each one is explained and evaluated.

As a designer that believes to be on top of all the latest fads in web design I find it very useful to analyze websites that speak to me. When I see an amazing design I bookmark it and check it out often for inspiration. What all these websites have in common is genius elements that just work. In this post i’m going to over the elements I believe these website contain that you should try and replicate in your designs.

apple

The apple.com design is known for its clear and spacey design. It allows for you to intake the information they want you to take from their website. Their design uses very clean gray colors, and has loads of space for your eyes to rest.

mint

Knowing the designer of mint.com personally I have personally studied this design for a while. The design has one main purpose to ensure a sense of trust to its visitors. Using the color green as a main color it also helps you quickly realize it deals
with money. The website uses a plethora of fonts which usually is a designer no no, but it some how manages to use those fonts for different purposes and to portray different points of information. The use of typography in it makes it stand out from any other
website I have seen.

mailchimp

MailChimp is known for its beautiful design, use of colors, and amazing monkey icon. The MailChimp does an amazing job at quickly explaining what the website does. It also provides you with a quick and easy way of accomplishing that. As a mailchimp user i have found the rest of the website to be just as easy to use.

imagespark

Although I personally do not use imgspark the website is a very stunning design. It has a wonderful sense of contrast. Using dark colors for the header and footer it allows you to quickly focus on the main piece. The main element is a beautiful 3D card that quickly explains to you what the website does. Using that sense of depth and virtual reality this website brings a lot to the table.

screenr

Being a regular screenr user I have to say this beautiful clean website allows you to quickly do what it offers. No lengthy sign ups, or even set ups… you click a button and you are ready to record your screen. It uses a very clean blue Radial Gradient using a blue (fresh) color.

cobblestonecn

This website is just a masterpiece of clean design. It uses a background pattern that creates the glass menu at top really stand out. It uses a rather unorthodox design that allows for easy follow through.

carbonmade

What i personally love about this design is the use of arrows to make it easy for you to follow the page flow. It also presents a breadth of information in a very clean format.

droplr

If there was one example on this page of true simplicity to its core, this would be it. This design is simple, beautiful, clean and easy to understand. When i come to this page i feel like i’m being spoon fed information in the fastest most efficient way. What’s even cooler about this page is that it doesn’t rely just on your reading comprehension skills but it gives you the option to watch a quick video explaining the product. It doesn’t get simpler and cleaner than this folks.

dragon interactive

When I think of innovation this website comes to mind. The design is very unique, clean, and effective. It creates an extravagant virtual reality, a clean navigation and a beautiful center element. I remember trying to right click all over this page to make sure it’s not flash… it’s not.
