“But All small business websites look alike, right?”
Small business websites come in many flavors, shapes and sizes. They can be black & white, bursting with color, modern or vintage looking, static, animated, the list goes on and on. But one thing that all small business websites share is that they’re normally created under a tight budget. And this is exactly where a little creativity goes a long way. Using just a little but of imagination can turn your small business website from another dime-a-dozen website into a visually powerful website.
Along those lines, here are 10 especially creative Wix sites that should jumpstart your imagination and stratch your creative muscles:
Design: London-based Astrixxx portrays a beautiful collection of Photos and Digital Art using a minimalistic straight-forward style.
Music: Brett Newski’s website features music samples, photo galleries and a road blog. The beautiful illustrations sure inspire a warm nostalgic feel.
Film and Animation: You don’t have to overload your website with features to make it look good. Ross Vernon pulls it off with a simple clean-cut design, giving his animations and films the respect and space they deserve.
Audio: Sound engineering never seemed so fascinating. Edgar Jaramillo uses illustrations to present his studio and equipment. Put together with the background, it has an electrifying feel.
Design: Rix’ Studio is set inside an old radio set, which makes for smooth navigation and a classic ole’ feel.
Art and Design: This site is not only about art – it’s an artifact in itself. It exhibits John Dee‘s works, and also uses his illustrations as navigation icons. Anyone who’s into computer games and 3-D art will definitely appreciate it.
Illustration: Kitty Poduska’s website is dreamlike, using big fonts and surreal illustrations. Magic Realism and Tumblr fans – this one’s for you.
Jewelry: Just as the name implies, Littlethankyous is an online gift shop for children. Its subtle design compliments its ecological agenda.
