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.
