Showcase of 10 Creative Wix Sites

Designing with Wix | August 31st 2011

“But All small business websites look alike, right?”

WRONG.

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.

Health: This site spells out ‘organic’. With a simple yet elegant look, theWholeFoodco conveys the concept of health using a fresh green and invigorating Turquoise.

Food and Wine:  The row of wine bottles at Bienvenido’s header whets your palate by projecting a fictional bar. Chin chin!
