Now that nearly every business in every niche and industry is online these days, it can be difficult for even the highly unique businesses to stand out. Small businesses have a need to be highly innovative and original to really draw in loyal clients, and one way to be innovative is with your brand elements, including your website.
An awesome website that portrays a highly original brand story is one that clients will not only stay on longer but are more likely to convert into loyal fans and customers. The following collection of websites include stunning website design for unique businesses. In the list below, unique doesn’t necessarily mean a completely new and innovative service or product, although a few of the following businesses fall into this category. Unique also stands for businesses that were innovative in their brand story – in the way they portray their brands on their websites.
So take a look and let us know which ones below were the most successful in presenting their business in a unique way with an incredible website.

In 2013, people want their information fast and simple. No extraneous frills, no unnecessary padding – just the facts.
This trend has been mirrored by the way designers are going about creating the front-pages of sites. As the gateway to everything within, the homepage needs to summarize the concept of the site and attract the user and these days, often the best way to do this is to keep it simple.
With that in mind, I’m going to take a look at some of the best examples within this trend, from the big-guns down to the little guys, and see what makes a simple, minimalist homepage so effective.
The site intended to both randomize and personalize the internet, StumbleUpon’s home page manages to summarise their core values with one encompassing image and little text.
By keeping it simple with a brand message and ‘cool’ image they entice people to click to the next page to sign up without badgering them or immersing them in information.
Portfolio websites are a favorite source of design inspiration for me. Not only is it helpful to see how other designers and agencies are presenting their work samples and presenting their services, but portfolio sites are often quality, creative designs. Most designers and agencies want to make the best possible impression on new visitors by having a portfolio site that looks great. The result is plenty of inspiration for anyone who wants to browse through samples of excellent portfolio sites.
In this post we’ll showcase 27 current examples of portfolio websites for your own inspiration.
“A Picture is worth a thousand words”. You must have heard this saying many times, and I do believe the saying is very true. A picture can express so much in terms of creativity and inspiration and many other things.
Not all pictures are very expressive or inspiring, and it takes a lot of hard work to find such pictures and graphics. But, to make your work easy and to save your time, here’s a compiled list of 20 great, creative and inspiring photo manipulations that you should see.
It’s the time of year when holiday music is playing in most places, and winter scenes are prominent in advertising and on the web. Some websites will even change or tweak their designs to have a winter or Christmas theme. Winter photographs can play a significant role in providing inspiration for your own winter designs, and with that in mind we decided to compile this collection of beautiful photos.
In this post you’ll find 25 outstanding examples of winter photography. The photos come from various photographers, and if you’re interested in seeing larger versions of the photos or more work from the photographers, click on the photos or the credit links and you will be led to the source. Hopefully these photos can provide some inspiration that can be used in your own work this winter.

Sometimes when designing a new project we get stuck and need a little inspiration. The problem I find is that all the design galleries are focused on websites, not web applications. Since marketing websites usually follow different design patterns, I don’t find them very helpful for inspiration on web app projects.
So here are a few of my favorite interfaces. Here I am mostly focused on aesthetics, but for some (Gumroad in particular) you should check out their user experience first hand.
YouVersion uses great simple typography to create a clean, focused interface. They don’t overwhelm the user with too many choices. In fact, they even have an icon-only navigation bar (you have to hover over the navigation to see the label).

Large photos are a natural thing to include in an e-commerce site that targets photographers.
Capturing your customers’ information, bagging sales, and generating inquiries, all of these are the main goals of your website. What better way to convince people to click that ‘submit’ button that with a crafty and creative contact form?
This is perhaps the most important part of your website.
Here we look at 25 of the best examples around for your design inspiration:
The elements of nature are popular subjects for photographers, and they can also serve as excellent sources of inspiration from designers. In the past we’ve showcased examples of nature-inspired website designs that demonstrate the impact that nature can have on designs.
