20 Best New Websites, March 2021.

This month’s collection of the best new websites launched or updated in the last four weeks features color, and more color, and then — just for good measure — a bit more color. Yellow is a hue of choice, but you’ll also find burnt orange, rich purples, and greens and blues in equal measure. What is missing is the tech-blue of years past, replaced with something altogether more Mediterranean. Enjoy!

Cevitxef

This site for Cevitxef ceviche restaurant in Bilbao creates drama with oversized text, heavily styled photography, white on black, and lots of movement.

Katarina Markina

Katarina Markina’s portfolio site is bright, bold, and full of character.

How & How

Digital design agency How & How keep things light and clean for their own website.

Caleño

Caleño makes non-alcoholic distilled spirits. Their relaunched website is bright and joyful, reflecting the character of the brand.

Staffan Sundstrom

Art director and photographer Staffan Sundström has a simple portfolio site that matches his work's calm, minimalist aesthetic.

Modyn

Modyn is a product design agency with a focus on mobility. The flexing of logo text and occasionally other elements adds a nice touch to an otherwise simple design.

Letters from Venus

Letters from Venus celebrate people living abroad and the cultures that embrace them. An asymmetric grid creates light and space.

La Manna’s

La Manna’s makes giant pizza slices and pizza cake slices. Their site has a larger-than-life feel with a nod to the 1970s.

Singita

Singita is an ecotourism and conservation brand based in south and east Africa. High-quality photography and a warm, terracotta-based color scheme create an inviting ambiance.

MAD

Digital product design agency MAD has gone for an app-like feel to their website. There is some nice user interaction, and they stay just the right side of cutesy.

Peak

Another non-alcohol drink, Peak, has chosen the healthy angle, with further emphasis on the social. The site is colorful but minimal.

The Hiring Chain

The Hiring Chain website is part of a campaign encouraging businesses to offer employment to people with Down Syndrome. The centerpiece is a video, but the about information is clearly presented appealingly.

Stykka

Stykka’s aim is to digitize the design, manufacture, and buying of furniture. The site has a very light feel, with a simple type and good use of white space.

Crappy Explanation

Crappy Explanation is a fun microsite from design agency Zajno that links to various playlists in Spotify. As a promotional piece, it’s well done without being too flashy.

Platform Seven

Platform Seven offers career mentoring for young people. The site is well structured with a strong narrative flow and a positive feel to the color scheme.

Moth Drinks

This time the drinks are alcoholic: Moth does classic cocktails in a can. As holding pages go, this makes a statement with its black and white graphics and masking effects.

Nêô Sephiri

Nêô Sephiri is a facial oil produced from melon seed grown in the Kalahari. A nice blend of simple illustration and atmospheric photography underlines the nature angle with this product.

The Bold

Digital design studio Bold’s own site has some pleasing transitions and scrolling animation, teamed with fresh colors.

PlantoMax

PlantoMax produces medicinal cannabis from plantations in southern Europe. This is a glossy site, taking a clear step away from the usual hippy image of cannabis.

Orsolina28

Orsolina28 describes itself as a hub for dance training and creative development. Its setting in the Monferrato hills in northern Italy provides some great photography. The inline links to video are a nice touch.
