50 Website Header Designs That Showcase Creativity and Wit

Read the full post

The first and foremost thing that will stand out about your website is its header. A well designed header will immediately attract the viewer’s attention, which should be the main goal. Once you catch someone’s attention, you also capture their interest and curiosity, and they are much more likely to spend more time on your website and return again in the future. Without a proper header, it will be more tricky to accomplish this, so you should make designing a witty header one of your main priorities.

A website header should ultimately serve two purposes. The first is to reflect the quality and the personality (and in turn your own personality) of the website. It has to be an accurate, appropriate, and sophisticated representation of what the website aims to do. The second is make the reader feel something. If the header gives off good vibes, and the reader feels like the website could be useful or interesting to them, then you have succeeded in creating a great header and gaining more followers.

Fortunately, there are many ways you can design interesting and thought-provoking headers for your webpage, like using big imagery, using beautiful script, featuring illustrations, overlaying the title with the content, and last but not least, there’s nothing like creating your own unique logo to truly leave your mark and make a lasting impression on someone. Think about what you’re trying to promote or sell, what projects or ideas you’re trying to share with the world, and finalize by condensing these thoughts into a smart and catchy title, short sentence, motto, or illustration.

For this article, we chose 50 of the best website header designs that showcase creativity and wit, and we hope that they will generate some new thoughts, ideas, and ultimately, one-of-a-kind website headers that will help you attract positive attention, more followers, and that will serve as inspiration for others, as well. As you’re scrolling down the list, think about what message you’re trying to convey, and imagine which design techniques will best suit your needs. With a wide variety of styles to choose from, you can be sure to find something that will spark your interest.

    This assortment of headers/covers is lovely. If I had to choose the best one then I’d probably have to go with SwishBoard – that design really pops!

    Cheers.
