It’s pretty difficult to find nice looking websites from the automotive industry! Most of them have the typical dealer-esque interface littered with “book a test drive” and “request a brochure” buttons, but there’s a hand full of automotive companies that commission special web brochures for their top of the range cars. These sites beautifully present the car and its features with stunning imagery and neat layouts, resulting in a much more interesting browsing experience. Today’s showcase features 20 creative promo websites from the automotive industry with clean, modern designs to market their flagship models.
We rarely get the chance to admire the full beauty of website designs when we’re limited to the cropped viewport of our browser windows, but there’s some stunning examples of full page layouts out there. We might only see a finished website at a few thousand pixels at a time as we scroll down the page, but designers take great care to craft beautiful layouts in their design concepts. In today’s post I showcase 20 stunning full page web design concepts with layouts that should really be appreciated.
Back in the day, splash screens were a popular addition to websites. They were a frontal page that was displayed before the user accessed the main site, which typically featured a sparse layout incorporating just the website’s logo and guidance about which browsers and monitor resolutions were supported. Today we’re seeing a revival of the splash screen, although they’re much more visitor friendly than their ancestors. Modern examples of splash screens are built right into the main page, filling the screen with eye catching imagery but still only containing a logo or statement as the main piece of content. They act as a welcoming message to set the scene and entice the user before presenting them with the rest of the page.
These days video game launches are anticipated as much as blockbuster movies, so it’s important for game developers to produce a stunning website to complement their title and share news, trailers and release information to avid fans.

Today’s showcase features a collection of quality websites for the biggest titles from the gaming industry in 2014-2015. See how they use images, video and animation to create enticing web designs.
As the world went crazy over the announcement of the iPhone 6 and Watch, designers went straight to work creating mockup templates so their interface designs could be previewed on these new devices.

Here’s an overview of some of the best free template files, there’s a huge variety of styles, colours and angles so you’re sure to find the perfect layout for your project.
The flat design style is still going strong in 2014! I originally showcased a range of web designs with solid background colors back in 2012, but there’s been so many new designs launched since then I thought it was worth creating a whole new roundup. Check out this collection of website designs with bright flat colour backgrounds, these designs ditch textures, gradients and patterns in favour of vibrant bold solid colours.
