25 Innovative Websites that Buck the Design Trends

Read the full post

I’ve heard a few remarks on recent posts on Line25 that many of the featured website designs have all looked the same. Certain trends have become so mainstream that the majority of modern web designs all have similarities in their layouts and styles. It’s still possible to find unique web designs though, in today’s post I showcase 25 innovative designs that buck the popular trends in favour of experimental ideas. These websites have all been chosen for their unusual navigations, out of the ordinary layouts or clever uses of animations and effects.

    Wow! Jonathan Patterson and Webalys look especailly awesome! There’s many beautifully esigned sites toady, but most of them are rather typical. That’s why creativity is one of a few things that can distinguish well-designed site

  5. The Airnauts site seems to amaze me each time, although since this site is heavily dependent on jQuery it is still a bit ‘laggy .. and this site does not work on IE7 either !!!! .. Apart from that a very nice inspiration

  7. Todd Huotari says:

    Very cool aesthetics. Do you have before/after metrics to see what impact these designs had on usability?
