100 Websites With Outstanding Artistic Design

We live in a world of information saturation, and that translates to web design. In such a competitive world, it becomes more and more important to stand out by breaking conventions. Sometimes it’s about layout, sometimes about the graphics and cool illustrations or anything else that can be different from others.

In this post, we take a look at 100 websites that look really different from their peers and automatically captivate their audiences with their design of elaborate backgrounds, illustrations, and textures. Is different always good? Let’s take a look and decide by yourself…

Which ones are your favorites? Did we leave any good designs out? Please share with us!

  • http://www.texmed.org Steve Levine

    These are some impressive and beautiful designs. I was hoping to find some ideas for our upcoming redesign, but found little here that would lend itself either to:
    1. A site with lots of content in lots of different areas; and
    2. An audience over age 25.

    Anyone have any lists of good looking sites that might fit those criteria?

  • http://www.webdesignerdepot.com Walter

    Thank you for posting my site belvedereinc.net on this list! It’s an honor to be listed!

  • http://carlbyrne.com(offlinependingredesign) Carl B

    At 37 and after nearly 20 years in the business am I old fashioned when I ask:

    Where’s the design here? it’s like Illustrator and Photoshop threw up on the screen!

    • Qumah

      I agree. As a non-designer all I see is a big mess. Allot of stuff just thrown in without thinking. Everything is trying to catch your attention.

  • http://www.webdesignerdepot.com Walter

    @Carll B: Design is everywhere you look at – from innovative type of layouts, to engaging choices of fonts, colors, textures, illustrations, and more. You may need to click on a few of these to experience the full effect of the graphics which is somewhat minimized in these screenshots.

  • http://www.arjentienkamp.com/weblog/ Arjen

    Wow! These websites look impressive.

    Thanks for sharing this great list!

  • http://waterrosez.blogspot.com/ waterrose

    Those are some beautiful websites! Bookmarking this so that I can come back and spend more time looking at them. Something to definitely aspire to.

  • John

    Brilliant list. Excellent choices –

    But in order to properly gauge why these sites are so beautiful, I think it’s necessary to show one that is not. prepare yourself before you visit this trajedy – (havenworks[dot]com).

    My eyeballs are still cussing me out.

  • evowo

    Great collection! Thanks a lot for the inspiration!
    Cheers from Berlin.

  • Fanning

    I agree with Walter. It looks like the same person chose all 100 because they all have the same flaw. These are not great web designs, though they all have a common artistic element.

  • http://andspeakingofpink.com Luckie Daniels

    Blown away! FABULOUS!:-)

    Luckie.

  • Chris P

    The majority of these are not designed they are wanna be artist. Almost every example is a busy cluttered mess. Throwing in everything for “wow” factor is not design, it is the complete opposite. Graffiti maybe, design – hardly.

  • Clayton Misura

    There are some great designs on your list: Ali Felski, Viget, and a couple others, but I don’t think these all constitute ‘outstanding artistic design’. They’re nice, sure, but I would have tried to include (and this is by no means a criticism of the list you’ve compiled, God knows, there is just too many great sites to find them all) a few that aren’t so heavy-handedly grunge, but still manage to captivate, like: http://www.thinkbrownstone.com , http://www.designsensory.com , http://weightshift.com, http://www.jasonsantamaria.com, http://bookmarks.bennington.edu/bookmarks.html

  • Suzanne Ward

    Am I the only person who thinks these are all 90% identical? Lots of lovely sites, but one or two ideas expressed over and over again. I guess we know what was hot in 2008, let’s hope 2009 will usher in a new era of variation!

  • Pingback: Design is Philosophy featured at Webdesigner Depot | Design is Philosophy - The Pink &amp Yellow Media Blog()

  • http://blog.pinkandyellow.com Morten Rand-Hendriksen

    Thanks for putting Design is Philosophy on the list. It’s always nice to see that people are paying attention to what you do. Love the design of this site btw: visually pleasing and functional at the same time.

    • http://www.webdesignerdepot.com Walter

      Thanks Morten

  • Jay

    I agree with Suzanne, highly repetitive ideas in much of these – although of a high standard. I guess the person who selected them has a thing for this style (and that’s fine) but there’s not much diversity in this 100.

  • http://www.collinwillis.com Collin

    It seems that all of these sites are pretty cluttered, and have elements that take up space simply for the sake of it. Also they seem to all have to same “blog” type design, aligned center and very long. There is some nice stuff here, but I wish there could be a better array of design. When stripped down to their basic elements many of these sites are very similar.

    I don’t mean to sound critical of the list, it is a good one, just something that I noticed.

    Walter, thank you very much for including my design ILoveColors, I’m really flattered.
    There are some people saying that this sites doesn’t feature design. I would like to ask what these people regards as design, using Helvetica bold in a white background? I have a career in graphic design, and we have always been told to not to limit ourselves. I have always designed by the “Form follows function” principle, and anytime I add something I take good care that it won’t interfere with user navigation or the information. Take a look at my newest site http://colorcitos.com that features the same trend than the awesome sites featured here. Can you say you can’t find something on the site? the word Catalog, is repeated several times in different contexts. There’s even an advice (for the computer unfriendly people :D ) on the catalog page to click on the images in order to show them larger. This is design. Design to achieve maximum functionality. Some people like to design with Helvetica bold on white, and other people like to do this kind of design. I try my best at designing and I believe all these designers do, we can see in their designs that they put life and heart in every work to achieve a clear navigation. Every important element is highlighted to be quickly accessible and the overall design is even clean to me. Maybe someone with twenty years in the business belongs to a different generation that cannot read things as fast as youths can do now, but the current designer generation knows that youths and middle age people must be tackled using a myriad of things to caught their attention.
    Walter, I can see you featured my favorite site nowadays, Free People boutique. Not only its design is superb, but it has a catalog made in flash that really blow my mind because you can easy reach every garment the model has, I haven’t seen anything like that in any other place.

    http://www.biola.edu/undergrad/, great design blogspot, Jeff Sarmiento, Looks like Pixel Criminals is getting a redesign and colour pixel.

    Web Design depot is the best out of the lot but wasn’t included :P

    I think a few of them do not deserve inclusion.

    Do you think my website deserves inclusion perhaps?

    Thanks for sharing this great post. Inspiring

    Very nice collection. You may wanna add http://mooti.de

    I guess this new “messed-up” look counters the heavy-duty scripting required to get these sites to function. I am totally old school, a certainly no code writer, so I resist the messy-page trend. If that quality appeals to a specific audience, fine, but the real passion is in the functionality. Some of the sites have marvelous technique, but I didn’t find much “appealing” in the crayon-scribbling, color-clashing, type-bashing, bad .ai rendering, weak-cartooning chaos in many sites… I certainly don’t think these are the best designs. I think they reflect your taste. Your taste ‘right now’. These “styles” will be, “oh, that’s so-LAST-Month” by next Tuesday. But thanks for pulling together a quick preview of some of the trash-design out there! Helps me to demonstrate to clients what they are up against!

    You are an astounding resource for this fantastic amount of discovery. Many, many thanks!
