Examples of Big Images in Web Design | webdesignledger.com


by 

In 2012 we could see the growth of the trend of big images in web design. Throughout the year we could see more and more big and beautiful images appearing in nice and clean designs. If you check out our Best of Web Design in 2012 list you will notice that this trend was quiet strong in 2012. Since we believe that the big images trend will stay strong in 2013, and also because we believe that images can give a lot of personality and style to a design, we decided to gather a list of fresh examples of sites taking advantage of beautiful images. From big thumbnails to huge background photography, you will find a lot of great examples here. Enjoy!

40 Fresh Examples of Minimal Web Design


Gisele Muller | http://webdesignledger.com/inspiration/40-fresh-examples-of-minimal-web-design

There is nothing more inspiring than a clean and minimal website. A design with few elements representing something. The saying “less is more”, even though somewhat cliche, couldn’t be more true. We already published here a A Showcase of Clean White Web Designs and a list with 60 Minimal and Super Clean Web Designs to Inspire You. Since minimal sites are always around and they are actually pretty trendy right now, we decided to gather a new list. Enjoy.

Simple Flow: Minimalism in Web Design


Jake Rocheleau | http://webdesignledger.com/tips/simple-flow-minimalism-in-web-design

Create a Portfolio for your Pocket with Business Cards from moo.com

There are so many techniques when it comes to web design, it’s hard to get a full grasp on all of them. Minimalism is one of the few which stand out from the crowd in a seemingly ubiquitous flow. The trend follows the concept of keeping things simple and easy to work with.

Removing clutter from pages helps users focus their attention on the things that really matter. Page content, images, contact information, and the presentation hierarchy that removes gradients and web 2.0 distractions. Check out a few of the ideas below in regards to minimalistic designs and see how you can incorporate these into your own projects.

How Does Minimalism Work?

The idea of minimalism in designs is not a new one. In fact, it’s been present in the art community for centuries. With the move into digital design we find things to be a bit different as the objects we’re designing are constantly changing.

Minimalism works by playing on your visitors keen attention, or rather lack thereof. Most visitors who visit your blog or website will not spend more than a few seconds on the page, maybe a few minutes if you’re lucky. This isn’t because they truly don’t care or hold apathetic viewpoints towards your content. Rather in our world of fast-paced action users know how easy it is to jump from one website to the next in almost an instant.

Playing on these pieces to your users attention span by placing content is easy to read layouts is the basis behind which minimalistic designs are built. You will frequently see much more typography and white space with fewer images and buttons as distractions.

Although there isn’t any guidebook for running minimalistic designs there are plenty of guidelines to follow. Additional white space is one such idea, along with the removal of unnecessary page elements.

30 Fresh and Beautiful Web Designs


Gisele Muller | http://webdesignledger.com/inspiration/30-fresh-and-beautiful-web-designs

Every Monday we showcase a collection of inspiring web designs to get your week started on a good note. We normally focus the collections on a particular category, but this week we are doing something a little different. We noticed that you probably were missing out on some great looking sites because they didn’t fit into the categories were were covering. So this week we are showcasing a mixture of designs that don’t necessarily belong in the same niche, but do have something in common…beauty. Enjoy!

Bing vs Google: A Usability Face-Off


Jacob Creech |   http://webdesignledger.com/tips/bing-vs-google-a-usability-face-off

We all know Google and Bing, and probably use one or both of them on more or less a daily basis. Search results are generally the defining factor that makes us have a good experience, and I suspect most of us don’t give too much consideration to the usability of the services.

However, with hundreds of millions of people using both of the services each and every day, even subtle changes in the usability of the two could add or shave off huge amounts of time for the two, and each small change can lead to a more enjoyable, more usable experience.

Today we will take a look at these two leviathans and see how they compare in terms of usability, and explain just what usability should mean to you. Want to learn how to improve conversions, get more subscribers, happier clients and better designs? Read on to find out how:

The testing process:

I have set up a quick test based on screenshots of both Google and Bing. There are just 7 questions in the test, and when you take it you will be directed to either the ‘Google’ channel, or the ‘Bing’ channel. This is a random process, and roughly 50% of people will be directed to each channel – this is to ensure a fair spread of users, habits and behaviours across the test.


To complete the test, you simply click on the location you think you would click to complete the assigned task. For example, if you were asked where do you enter your search term you would probably click in the search box; the testing application will generate a heatmap of where everyone has clicked, and you will have a quick visual guide of where people have been clicking. At the same time it will also record your average time to complete the task – obviously there is a big difference in completing a test in 5 seconds versus 10 seconds, and the results will reflect that.

20 Creative Examples of Forced Perspective Photography


Henry Jones | //webdesignledger.com

You don’t always have to use Photoshop to create optical illusions in your photographs. With a technique called forced perspective you can create illusions that make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It just takes a little creativity with the placement of the subjects in the shot and the camera angle. To give you some inspiration, here are 20 Creative Examples of Forced Perspective Photography.
