Here are a few websites we drew inspiration from as well as a quick summary of what elements we like in particular:
We love the overall look and feel of this site. The design feels clean and current and incorporates a number of elements we really like – white background, modules highlighting images and content, and simple UI.
The large, horizontal content spanning the top of this page was our main inspiration for the content module on our homepage. It delivers content in a digestible, impactful way which we’d like to emulate. We also feel that this site is very easy to navigate, feels fun but still current, and does a great job combining product information and interesting, topical content.
This site was also fielded while discussing our design direction moving forward. This page again incorporates content modules with images and minimal copy, but also features big, simple navigation and mobile app like buttons.
This site impressed us in a number of ways. We like the simplicity of the design and the fact that it feels very cutting edge and incorporates a number design elements we like, included the black/white/dark gray color scheme, lazy load of articles, and links in context.
