12 interesting and attractive website design ideas. 2018.

Twelve interesting and attractive ideas for website design on the examples of the projects developed and implemented by Direct Line Development. 2018.

Any person who is planning to create a new site needs website design ideas to make the project more attractive and comfortable for the users. Sometimes it’s hard to find a worthy graphics solution, good images, and creative animation. Sometimes there is no inspiration because inspiration doesn't have a schedule. That’s why it’s so important to learn from other IT companies and design studios in order to draw abstract concepts.
Direct Line Development wants to share its design experience and presents 12 interesting and attractive website design ideas applied in real projects in Philadelphia and Denver.

Personal Website Design Ideas: Interactive Game on the Main Page

So many web pages lack creativity and end up being uninteresting and forgettable. You will mostly find sales and discounts information on such web pages. In order to engage your users, you need to come up with innovative, modern and personal website design ideas to keep your visitors coming back to your site. This is why it's crucial to follow four simple rules to make a truly effective website. Our idea is to revitalize a page with a simple, innovative and interesting new game. In order to engage a user, a game has a prize in a form of a discount for successfully completing the game. And if a user wants to receive a prize, they need to leave their contact information, which means that you will have an opportunity to send professional marketing emails in the future.

Geocontent as a Web Design Content Idea for Your Website

Currently, our Direct Line Development company has offices in Philadelphia and Denver and we were strategizing about how to show localized content to users from other cities. This is not a difficult task for developers when your team has the inspiration to impress. We ended up with a time-lapse of Philadelphia city at night that users in Philly see and residents of Denver would see a similar video of Denver at night. And if you open a website from any other US location, you will see a night sky on the homepage.   

This idea makes your website appear more local and modern to your users. You can take this idea and use it throughout the whole business website. For instance, when you take a look at our services page, we have a separate block that offers a user to contact our sales team. That block will show a Denver salesperson if you are in Denver and Philadelphia one if you are in Philly.

It’s a great idea for anyone who has multiple representatives in various cities.

Video Background in Website Design for Bay Immigration Law and Direct Line

Custom video background

We have implemented a custom video background to Bay Immigration Law and Directline website designs to draw the attention of the users. The flying American flag and a wing of the plane as metaphors for the main activities of the company are the right ideas to represent the business.

Performance Electrical Contractors website & animation of the background

Animation of the background

Performance Electrical Contractors LLC has an animated custom website design, namely its background. There is continuous lightning strikes which creates an atmosphere of an electrical network in the background of the home page. This element does not depend on the scroll of the entire site. This is definitely the right solution for this kind of business.

Terrific animation for the website design of AOR ITS

Animation for the website design of Captain Steamer

Awesome web design for the Junction Ventures site

The ideas listed in this article are only a few of many that our talented Designers and Developers executed. We are extremely lucky to have a large team that can collaborate on projects and come up with the best solution for our clients.
There are so many components to keep in mind when building a website and putting it all together it is truly an art form.
Having the ability to do Custom Sites gives our team a lot of freedom in coming up with concepts and every detail of the design, not having to have ideas fit into a mold. When compared to Template based websites it makes a huge difference in the final product and our clients end up with a one of a kind website that we are proud to add to our portfolio.
It is extremely important to keep in mind that clients are not just hiring us to build pretty websites, every website should be build with a goal in mind.
Simply stated: What do we want our visitors to do when they come in to our website?
And this requires a whole new set of skills from Designers and Developers!!!

With the world of web design being dominated by templates that are essentially the same, it's more important now than ever to stand out with these custom design features. I'm a big fan of interactive backgrounds, maybe because of my attention span but that's what keeps me on a page longer. If Google can get you to stay on a disconnected internet screen because of a game, then a little bit of interactivity will go a long way on any website.

Great ideas here! Anything you can do to engage the visitor and capture their attention is key. The days of static pages are gone because they no longer stand out. Separating your business from competitors is key and these are some of the best ways to do this.

I love the way we stay ahead of the trends, and when you flip through our portfolio, you can really see how we like to customize each design and tailor it to the needs of each client.

These are some very cool ideas which can help any website to stand out! When you have a business you want your website to be different from your competitor's websites and implementing an interesting design element or a unique interactive feature would definitely help.
