Below are 7 One Page websites we awarded “Most Loved” in August – hope you enjoy!
Designed by Few (Competition, Event)
Awesome horror-themed One Page website announcing the new ‘Designed by Few’ competition and party hosted by the ‘Made by Few’ conference. Readers often ask what it takes to crack our “Most Loved” award category – this is a great reference to that extra bit of effort that makes all the difference. To align with the gore theme – your cursor transforms into a bloody knife, eerie audio subtly starts to play as you scroll, being a design conference the desktop “murder scene” is of course a designer setup with blood smeared tools, great choice with the Neo-Noire heading font that aligns with bloody brush stokes/smears and the blood splatter form focus is a lovely touch. Lastly, the comp is hosted by the ‘Made by Few’ conference, their actual website is the screenshot seen within the intro desktop aerial shot. Bravo!Launch Website
The Eight Arms 8-bit Games (Competition, Event)
To celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympics, the team from Eight Arms decided to make their own event called ‘The Eight Arms 8-bit Games’. The game is of course hosted online in a wonderfully fun One Page website that pays homage to the classic arcade games we grew to love. The execution is brilliant. Also nice little touch using a pixel font called ‘Press Start 2P‘:)Launch Website
invstr (Competition, Event)
Impressive parallax scrolling in this slick One Pager for new finance app, ‘invstr’. Such a smart and lovely touch with the “Make Change” to “Take Charge” intro text transition. The long scrolling Single Page website also features the current Drop Shadow trend throughout the page.Launch Website
Tilda Zero Block (Competition, Event)
Beautiful spacious landing page for a new website builder called ‘Zero Block’. The Single Page website features a dark color scheme with a neat intro demonstration on how it works. Best of all this very landing page was made with the application itself. Boom!Launch Website
Jan Losert (Competition, Event)
Lovely One Page portfolio redesign that fills a large screen well for UI designer, Jan Losert. The Single Page website features a slick load animation, a super subtle parallax effect as you start to scroll and great use of whitespace with big clean typography. Make sure you resize your browser to see the attention to detail on mobile resolution – a completely different header design. Lastly, what a lovely touch with that custom 404 page with a different photo of himself. Great to see Jan stick to the One Page format since we featured him back in 2014!Launch Website
Trump Cushion (Competition, Event)
Hilarious but seriously well executed One Pager selling an inflatable ‘Trump Cushion’ – yes a whoopee cushion with Donald Trump‘s face on it. The checkout process is slick and adapts perfectly from the biggest to smallest screens. Great to know 100% of the proceeds go to charity and the related Donald quotes (towards each charity) are such a nice touch to the whole concept. Well played to all involved.
Sam Lord Flavin (Competition, Event)
Slick load transitions in this minimal One Pager for woodworker and photographer, Sam Lord Flavin. Lovely touch with the black and white full screen preloader revealing his name. The AJAX loading Single Page website also features lots of parallax scrolling as well as hover-sensitive parallax effects.
Hope you enjoyed these beautiful One Pagers from August! Big love to hosting provider Bluehost for sponsoring the round up:)
