This sleek website shows off Brittany Chiang’s skills in web design and marketing.

Her dominant use of two hues gives the page a sense of authority.

She uses a “just the facts” approach — a trend that we’re seeing in a number of websites recently.

Red, white, and black form a seriously arresting and eye-catching colour combination.

The Impossible Handwritten Font design jumps from the page. You can even scroll down on the site to see examples of their font designs work.

Abstract Illustrations

Limited use of colour is the theme of choice for Abstract Illustrations.

Scrolling down brings the user to examples of their web illustration work. The yellow and black perfectly contrast the white field, allowing their designs to take centre stage.

A unique font choice, eye-popping design, and engaging content — yes, please.

Technically not a one-page design (okay — we cheated but hear us out), Lounge Lizard combines iconic imagery with digital age products.

The Home Page shows off everything from their services, clients, and company philosophy! Pretty sleek, right?

Brutalist Web Kit

Another attempt at using retro concepts to introduce digital age products is the Brutalist Web Kit.

Brutalism was a mid-20th-century architectural style based on Soviet and German minimalism.

The word “brutalist” attracts attention due to its historical (and somewhat controversial) reference. It also makes a user want to see what a brutalist web kit would look like.

Critical Techworks

Critical Techworks also uses cool shades against an image of a Tron-like highway.

They tantalise visitors with the intriguing concept of “the future of motion.”

Kirk House

Often, a single, classy look makes the most sense on a single page site.

This picture provides more worth than a thousand words worth of written description could. Paired with a luxury car, the Kirk House announces itself as high end without using so many words.

Scroll down, and you find the benefits of living in this York neighbourhood alongside details of its many amenities.

Vladimir Gruev

Ukraine based Vladimir Gruev designed an interactive way to tour his website visitors.

Users control the small dot seen to the left of the cube. With this dot, you uncover information placed all over the cube’s surface. It’s a fun, unique way to introduce yourself!

Sizzy

Sizzy’s popular culture reference to Lord of the Rings is not recognised by some. But Tolkien’s words are sure to inspire.

Tip: When using a popular culture reference to base your brand around, make sure it is both timeless and well-known to your target market.

Melexis

Tech companies have gravitated toward the sleek look of light blue on a field of black.

Melexis follows this trend. But it sets itself apart by using a graceful jellyfish to draw attention to the intended text.

Scrolling down takes the user immediately to a no-nonsense, stripped-down, and user-friendly product display.

Milkshake

Milkshake breaks from the serious appearance often associated with tech sites and goes for something a little more fun.

Images of delicate wildlife underscore the importance of Belgium-based Aquafin’s services.

The initial screen describes both the story and purpose of Aquafin, connecting the image of the bird with its products and services.

Operation Labs

Operation Labs makes a statement using a deep purple for the background, lighter shades for subtext, and an off-centre layout.

The monotone effect breaks up just enough to focus on the main idea of the text.

Linear

Linear offers a sleek look, not only to attract new customers but also to provide a preview of what they offer.

Equal Parts

Equal Parts overlays a stylised design that points down to a kitchen.

The design draws the eye down to links that lead to their products and services.

Their minimal use of colour does just enough to break up the black field, suggesting that Equal Parts are a fun and interesting brand. They don’t make cookware like they used to!

No Code Conference

Conferences, seminars, and workshops need to incorporate both a welcoming and a dynamic look. This underscores that the conference itself have that and so much more to offer.

The design displayed here uses elements familiar to the print newspaper world. Note how the text follows the classic eye path from upper left, across the top, to the call to action at the lower right-hand.

Cherri Hartigan

Cherri Hartigan uses graphics reminiscent of an 80s era video game. She’s created a playful and minimalist design that reveals a lot of personalities.

Play Date

Play Date serves as a perfect example of the teaser technique. It provides a fun-looking yellow device and a catchy product name that evokes memories of childhood.

The site also cleverly establishes yellow and grey as the colour themes, mimicking that of a game.

The copywriting team expertly set up the text as a slow reveal, moving from more general to more specific descriptions, pulling the user into scrolling down to learn more.

Arabic Coffee

This website’s got us craving for some coffee.

Its managed to stuff so much on one page — from the shop’s name to its contact details.

And there’s nothing more enticing than that cup of Arabian latte (or at least a photo of it).

Remember, keep your content short and informative. Like this example, make sure your key content answers the Who, What, Why, When, and Where.

Conclusion

One-page websites are fully-loaded, fully-functional, and full of personality.

And it’s easy to see why the world has fallen in love with them.

But always keep in mind that once your brand grows, a one-page design may not be enough to sustain it.
