Thinking Of Creative Website Ideas
Whenever you are thinking about creating a new website or re-designing the one you have you should get ideas to see what the trend is. Checking out local competitor's websites can be a helpful tool to find out what your visitors are comparing you to.
Having a website designed in a such a way that it speaks to your visitor is one of the most important things when it comes to have an online presence.
With the overwhelming amount of website design companies that are our there we wanted to make your life easier and put together this list of creative website designs that we think are cool!
#1 Andrew McCarthy: Digital Designer & Developer
Andrew is a Digital Designer based in Phoenix, Arizona. One of the main trends that is happening now with websites is a mono-tone type of look that is simple to look at for your visitors.
Having simple colors can make it easier for them to make a decision and not be confused by many elements on the website. This website has kind of a cool background that is a bunch of gray and white stripes that almost give you kind of a dazed feel if you look at them too closely.
The background shapes and images on the website changes as you scroll down the screen. If you notice the website keeps scrolling through infinity, that seems to create more of an engaging experience for visitors on the website.
It looks like Andrew is also based out of Berlin, Germany. There is many famous web developers that work and live in that area. With the internet being more globalized and technology changing every month, visitors can come from all over the world.
I also checked out Andrew’s Facebook Page, which also has this type of minimalistic type of design to it. He is following through his entire branding and web presence with the same type of theme, which is a mono-tone, gray type of look and feel.

#2 Sztafeta Pokolen
This website is for the 71st Warsaw Rising Anniversary. It features a bunch of people's faces on different pages of the website. It is designed in such a way that when you move your mouse it changes the placement of the text on the site.
Also the website looks great when you go into the mobile version or even tablet. Having a website that works across all platforms and devices in kind of an important thing since most people are not using just one device through out the day. Over 80% of web traffic is based on a smartphone.
The website features of a scrolling type of mechanism that allows you to fluidly go through the information and see the featured characters for this celebration.
Another feature of the website is that it's available in two languages, English and Polish. It looks like the Warsaw Rising even is held each year in Poland. Google recently announced that having a multi language website is something that they will consider when giving your website priority in the search engine results.
All in all this website has desirable features and it a great example of what someone can do if they take the time to get creative and follow a consistent theme.

#3 Le Mugs
Le Mugs, is a restaurant based in France, made by the Play Agency.
Once you first land on the website, you can immediately tell that it is a parallax scrolling type of website. The creative aspect of it is, that not only does the background move with the site but elements in the background also interact with the movement of the mouse.
This is a pretty classic type of creative angle that many web developers have started to take on in recent years. As device screens get bigger and bigger, there will be a market for a website design that takes advantage of the entire screen real estate.
The website also has a really cool hover of pop up feature that makes it creatively stand out from the competition. Having animated features on your website can help the interaction rate go up. This is something Google looks at when scanning your website to quality and where it should go on the search results.
Making sure that the images are not too big and load slow is also another thing that Google takes into consideration. If you have too many animations they could "bog" your site down and make it slower to load for your visitors.

#4 Serve By Postmates
Postmates the delivery company has create a website for their future delivery system. The creativity is above and beyond what you would expect from a company that specializes in connecting restaurant owners with customers and delivering their food.
When you first visit their site you will notice it repeats the same type of parallax type of scrolling look as the previous website above. The background seems to be more a computer generated type of graphic displaying their prototype product.
#5 XmasTree Game Website
This is a pretty awesome website design ! Its basically a full video game inside a website, it also works on mobile as well as it does on a desktop computer. It prompts you to use your mouse to drag and drop different elements of the website.
You also get to go through a tutorial before you begin to play. With the color being really bold and green it matches a Christmas Tree type of theme. Its basically like a new version of a Tetris game but made for the computer screen.
There is a gamification factor that goes into this game, I think the developer was showing an example of what is possible to develop through the latest web technologies. There is also a 3D element does goes really well with the size of all the elements on the screen.
