Beautifully Designed Websites of May

By 6 June 2016No Comments

Can you all believe it that it’s June already? We can’t. Even though May, very much like April seemed to be over in a blink we can’t say goodbye without looking back at the most beautifully designed websites of the month. If you didn’t catch last month’s you can do so here. If you did then carry on reading and enjoy!

1. Ultranoir


The Ultranoir virtual reality team sure do know how to put a stunning web design together. Full of intense, captivating imagery and seamlessly fast navigation this web design creates a really enjoyable user experience. The minimal menu and typography really allows the user to focus on what really matters- the imagery. The web design tells a story while showcasing Ultranoir’s best work. If we ever need some virtual reality assistance, we know who we’d want to talk to.

2. The broads

A favourite throughout the 3mil office, this Broads National Park website is a well-deserved mention. Another web design successfully focusing on imagery, however, in a simpler and more natural way than Ultranoir. By segmenting the design into strips and keeping the menu to a minimum the user is made to focus on the imagery which is what this website is all about- beautiful and looked after landscapes. The streamlined user experience makes the website easy to navigate and enjoyable to look at.

3. Cantor fine art

Recommended by our designer Sean this web design is full of everything you would want in a website. Yet another web design that just goes to show what a difference high-quality imagery can make. We love the minimalist design and clean-cut typography. The monochrome colour palette really helps the coloured photography to really stand out too. With absolutely no clutter and only meaningful links and navigation this website truly is seamless in terms of aesthetics, branding and, of course, user experience.

4. Checkland Kindleysides

We’re not usually fans of full video landing pages but this one pointed out by our developer Pedro is definitely worth a mention. Why this one works for us is because although it is a full-screen video it is very subtle. While the eye is very distinctive, the movements are small and not so intrusive. Keeping the colour palette monochrome adds to the subtlety and makes the user focus on the main message at hand- “We’re brand storytellers”. Message well received.

5. Cancer research Crick’s DNA

Spotted by our creative director Matt, this donation page for cancer research really hits the nail on the head when it comes to driving their message as well as involving the user in their mission. This entire double helix can be interacted with and brings up different messages about the different doctors and scientists involved in the research. Another clever touch we like is that running through the entire helix are the names of those who have already donated to the cause. Also, an enticing call-to-action entitled “this could be you” is a great way to directly involve users and personalise the user experience.
