A Showcase of Single Page Websites

When designing a website with a minimal number of pages and not a ton of content, a single-page design can be an innovative way to set the site apart.

Single-page websites often utilize JavaScript and Flash, along with HTML and CSS to fit more content on a page without substantially increasing load times.

Navigation has to be given some special consideration when it comes to single-page sites, to make sure visitors can get back to the home section of the page without issues, and navigate from any one section to any other section. This is often achieved through sticky headers or repeating navigation in each section.

The sites below are all excellent examples of single-page websites. They’re both usable and aesthetically-pleasing, and take full advantage of the single-page format.

The Roaaar website includes a “return to top” link at the bottom of each section, which makes it easy for visitors to get back to the navigation in the header.

Duplos by Ricardo Mestre

The Duplos site takes a different approach, putting the main content at the bottom of the page. Navigation takes you further up the page, rather than down.

New apps and websites seem to appear on an almost-daily basis.

Trying to find the best ones each week or month can be tough, especially considering how many come out that aren’t that great.

Some are apps closely tied to a web designer’s daily work, while others aren’t likely to be used as often, but are still useful.

If you want to share a recent web app or website useful to designers, please send a tweet to @cameron_chapman for inclusion in our next monthly roundup.

40 Colorful and Abstract iPad Wallpapers

You all know what it is, and you all know what it does – whether you see a purpose for it or not.

Please note that iPad wallpapers are square (their default size is 1024×1024 pixels) so that they work both vertically and horizontally when the iPad is flipped from side to side.

This round-up consists of 40 quality abstract and colorful iPad wallpapers and backgrounds, ready for you to download and use for free.
