Showcase of Web Designs with Modern Splash Pages

Read the full post

In the early days of the web, designers made use of splash pages to introduce a website with a logo, a short description, and crucial supported browser information. We no longer dictate to our users which browsers they’re permitted to use, but splash pages are still fairly prominent in modern web design.

As layouts have expanded to take up the full screen, many sites now display just a logo or tagline to their users until they scroll to see the rest of the content. In today’s web design showcase, we round up 30 websites that make use of the modern splash pages. See how they reinforce their brand or introduce the company before taking the user to the main content.

Playtika

Playtika captivates audiences with beautifully produced, highly immersive social games. Their bright red presentation website starts with a simple splash screen.

    All of these splash pages look good and artsy and all of that…

    But at the same time, they will also cause me to bounce, and leave your site.

    I came to it for a reason and it was not to have a giant screenfull of useless.

    They are barriers that prevent me from accessing the content I want, insulting bouncers that make me not want to enter the club.

  6. Jordan says:

    All the splash pages are impressive and creative. The most outstanding ones are Apparatus and CoLofts as they reflect simplicity with style.

  7. How To Create A Website says:

    The examples of splash pages you’ve displayed are really appealing and I get how things are trending right now. I’ve happen to see some flash splash pages on the web and those really create a bad user experience when the load time is a bit long.
    I think the key in today’s market, is to have CSS based splash pages or maybe just images because load times are of vital importance, especially in some of the stuff I do.

    Cheers,
    Devin
