About One Page Love

One Page Love is the leading showcase of beautiful One Page websites, templates and resources.

A “One Pager” is a Single Page website with no additional pages like About, Team or Services. All the content sits within the same webpage, traditionally in a long-scrolling layout.

The beauty of a One Page website is it tries to promote one thing in an uncluttered, direct manner. This allows the visitor to make a quicker decision vs sending them to a bloated website with many options.

The One Page Love website was launched in March 2008 by Rob Hope in Cape Town, South Africa who continues to add One Page websites and resources daily.
