A Collection of “Coming Soon” Web Pages

Inspiration, Resources, Web Design | Feb 19, 2010

“Coming soon” pages are a great way for websites to engage and connect with visitors, even before the actual site is published.

A well designed “coming soon” page is a great teaser to grab the attention of potential visitors and make them look forward to the website’s launch.

These pages usually include a short sign up form or social media links to notify visitors of updates and the release date.

From minimalist approaches, to elaborate illustrations, there are virtually unlimited ways to create an eye catching design for these website teasers.

In this post, you’ll find a great collection of “coming soon” pages that you can use for inspiration when designing your own.

    These are alot of great coming soon pages. Thanks for sharing.

  • Rob

    Wow, that is an ace list. Some really nice designs there. The best thing: some new ones. It’s about time. It’s annoying when you always see the same designs.

    Ps. May I plug our own (somwhat large) coming soon page. It’s actually helpful too. http://www.font-face.com a new font service for @font-face for free.

  • http://www.greenandchic.com Carla | Green and Chic

    I love all of those pages, especially Accentuate. Very creative!

  • http://www.alterview.nl Gert Wierbos | Alterview

    Nice post, gives a lot of inspiration :) I’m also guilty of having a “coming soon” webpage… It’s located at http://www.alterview.nl, please have a look ;)

  • http://www.booshcreations.co.uk/ BooshCreations

    This is a big list, we have a coming soon page also. It will only be like that until Monday though as that is when it will go live: http://www.booshcreations.co.uk/

  • http://www.mjcreations.co.uk Mark

    Thanks for putting the list together, some great ideas there

  • http://www.vunkyblog.net Vunky

    Nice list.

    Lot of work collecting those, I suppose. How do you google it? “unfinished websites” ;)

    I tend to always forget the under construction page, although it might be better habit to include them.

  • http://www.eggman.be eggman

    absolutely fabulous!

    @rob: great idea

  • Claudiu

    http://mudjo.com is another one that I think that it should be there.

  • http://circleboxblog.com Callum Chapman

    A great selection! :)

  • http://www.redesignyourbiz.com/ Maverick

    brilliant… really cooool examples.

    thanks for the list.

  • http://www.tisme.com.au Mathew Carpenter

    That’s a great collection. My website’s coming soon page isn’t as detailed, but still gives you a teaser of what to expect: http://www.addtodesign.com

  • UC

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing.

  • http://www.saismo.at Patrik

    great collection! Deaxon is definitely my favourite! Too bad we didn’t make it on the list with http://www.saismo.at :( … maybe you wanna check it out anyway ;)

  • http://www.92pixels.com Arslan

    wow, lots of Coming soon pages, it gives me lots of inspiration, Great

  • burlo

    what a beautiful collection!

  • http://www.canofpop.com/ Andy

    Oh and i’m going to plug http://www.salonboo.com/ – which is another example of a coming soon page, with added data capture.. designed by the masterful @griffiabox.

  • http://twitter.com/recepkutuk Recep Kütük

    I believe http://www.pyronome.com deserves to be in this list too :)

  • http://www.krishnasolanki.co.uk/ Krishna

    Wow! Some of these are really cool. Very inspiring, and definitely a good way of showcasing some design skills whilst still working on the site!

    Something to consider for the next project i think…

    Well done!

  • http://www.mushroomdigital.co.uk web design staffordshire

    Some really nice coming soon pages. Im setting up a domain name tool website and think the idea of getting subscribers before I launch is an excellent idea. Brilliant!

  • http://www.dzinepress.com Dzinepress

    i really like your concept based article, really beautiful.

  • John
  • jeff

    very cool list (with only 2 exceptions but I’ll let you off those) – but it still doesn’t disguise the fact that either you got your act together and actually done the work and actually published your website or you haven’t. period. making pretty excuses just doesn’t wash. When all is said and done there’s a whole lot more said than done.

  • http://www.emdesigns.de Michael

    Nice article, good inspiration.

    The Design/Colors of GroupFire remind me of Ubuntu.

  • http://www.ownidentity.nl/ Jonathan

    Great showcase!

  • http://dominikhahn.com Dominik Hahn

    Why would you put on a ‘coming soon’ page when you redesign a site? If it was shitty for the last 2 years, why don’t just leave it online till the redesign is fully done and then do the transition.
    Upload the files at night and impress your visitors the next morning. :-)

  • http://www.clear-river.com Keith

    Wow these are great! I love the creativity that goes into these. People need a reason not to feel frustrated when they come to one of these pages and making them interesting helps a lot. If no one minds I’ll shamelessly add a page that I just completed: http://www.sjec-midland.org/

  • http://www.designerkan.com Designerkan

    Really perfect.. Thanks a lot for sharing

  • http://www.geopull.com/ Dennis Stokholm

    Great list, a lot of them goes straight in my inspiration folder :)

    I would like to add http://www.geopull.com/ to the list, a geolocation web app currently in development; with a nice little “coming soon” teaser page.

  • http://kver.ca Ken

    While these pages are all well designed, one thing worth mentioning is that some of them seem to be websites getting updated or redesigned. The ones transitioning from one design to the next should really have avoided putting up a coming soon page and simply lived with the old design while the new one is built. Any day I would settle for having one less-than-beautiful website than a drop-dead gorgeous page telling people to wait.

    But the ones getting started and built are all fantastic.

  • http://www.cuiki.com Cuiki®

    Hi!! These are all great. Here is another coming soon page that i think is dope! http://www.breezi.com

  • http://etle.designerteam.info/ New York Web Designer

    Sweet roundup :)

    Thanks for sharing…

  • http://www.7vision.com Seb

    Nice collection ! Really inspiring !

    Here is the one i made for a soon to be launched Social Network i am building with friends:
    http://rvsocial.com/

  • http://www.evacssion.com Edwin Vargas

    well a great and long list indeed, thanks for sharing… I have one example that might be worth checking out http://www.movingtargetgames.com

  • http://www.designtank.ws ChrisR

    Why don’t folks just leave up their current site until they are ready to launch the redesigned one? If someone wants to see your work today, they don’t really care that you are busy with other stuff and can’t show your work now.

    Am I missing something?

  • http://www.google.co.uk Shahid

    Nice list!

    Here’s another nice n simple one.. http://www.digitalent.com

    Cheers

  • http://www.lukesbeard.com Lukes Beard

    Srsly one day mine might even come down… Thanks guys :D

  • http://www.indev.nl Matthijn Dijkstra

    Reminds me of my site (www.indev.nl) for quite some time now. Still dont have the time to update my own website.

  • http://www.yourinspirationweb.com sarah

    Wow, it’s a very amazing list, thanks!
    I love colors of Just A Love and creativity of knotheory.

  • davinder376

    Have a new web app coming out, and just so happen to have a coming soon page. Not the most creative, and many of the ones above put it to shame, but it’s clean and to the point, http://www.debateaday.com

  • http://twitter.com/carlosinho Karol K.

    Great list. Where do you start to come up with such a list? ;)

  • http://www.designlint.com Zach

    There is some really great inspiration here. The point of a coming soon page is not to place hold…but rather to build excitement. These achieve that for sure!

  • http://www.otioncreative.com Phillip Salfity

    Great collection, one I like from a while back was for superkix.com

    What about this one? http://webachno.com/

  • http://ricardorivera.net Ricardo

    Great post, the pages are really awesome, I like Foundation Sixcheck it´s very cool.
    This one it´s really cool http://www.breezi.com

  • http://www.aledesign.it aledesign.it

    So cool. No more people think who this page is not important. But I think is useful for create the right expectations for users. Putting a bit of curiosity.

  • http://www.visualswirl.com/ Chris Thurman

    I sometimes think it’s pointless to spend too much time designing these but if done right, it can really be an effective way to build hype for an upcoming site. Great roundup!

  • http://www.cssjockey.com Mohit Aneja

    Gr8 collection!!

    He mine should be included, because it really shows a better side of the coming soon page: showing some nice artworks/photography to already create a mood and identity for the upcoming website:

  • http://www.onextrapixel.com Aidan

    Nice. Though Coming Soon pages have limited lifespan. The creators really do make a great first impression.

  • http://irava.net Stefan

    Thanks for the feature! And nice collection btw.

  • Ryan Turki

    Cool collection !!!!

    Coolest ‘coming soon’-page ever: http://screenagers.com/ingverysoon/

  • http://www.graphiclux.com Matthew Lux

    Great collection! Give us inspiration to make something nice for a client that wants something quickly slapped up before the development of their site is done.

    Always think about having about 3-4 templates for Coming Soon pages ready with PSD’s so you can change the color and font type easily. After you get one done you can have new ones done within an hour.

    http://www.graphiclux.com

    Thanks.

    Iv been working on a hand illustrated holding page and site design for a side project me and a friend are working on:

    http://www.deadcelebjokes.com

    there might be a bit to much on it but im happy with it so far and cant weight to get the whole site live. some good ideas on the examples you have listed.

  • http://www.glyph.co.za Chris

    An interesting collection, although I think that some of the launching soon pages could have been more conceptually-driven – a good design is just not enough to make you stand out. I think that the “After Some Words” launching soon page was the best of the lot.

  • http://projectbubble.com/ Stu Green

    Another good holding page (though I’m biased) is Invoice Bubble… http://invoicebubble.com

    Hi,

    Thanks for the great collection

    My “coming soon” webpage http://www.peacockcrest.com/

    let me know how you like it!!

  • http://www.singingtips.org Singing Tips

    This is a great collection. It gives me a ton of ideas. I like the pages with the opt-in to “Notify Me”.

  • http://www.christianflorin.com Christian

    I love these examples. There is some really great work in here! Awesome post!

  • Chris G

    Wow these are all lovely examples in this showcase! You sure have great taste in terms of looks.

    I’ve been looking around the web for more great coming soon pages for personal inspiration and I think I’ve found a pretty cool one from a site named “Desoulbel”(.com). Since they have something to do with music I’m guessing it’s a play on words of decibel, pretty catchy.

    Also I agree with Singing Tips on the “Notify Me” option seems like a wonderful idea.

  • http://creation-1.com Justin

    This is a great selection. Simple and easy to use without too much jumbled text everywhere. Too many words on a web site is my pet peeve.

  • Premanshu

    http://www.kolhapurworld.com/ has put up a nice and creative coming soon page. The egg looks realistic and the punch line will be out any moment suits it well…..

    Cheers !
