What we like: Australian architectural firm Decor Systems created a website that mirrors its taste for spaces that blend organic and modern elements. The designers balance intentional use of space with detailed images introduced through on-scroll animations, constructing a calming but informative visit. The site navigation is a great reference point as well — its menus make excellent use of the fly-out technique.
What we like: AI-powered deep learning isn’t the most accessible topic, but Pienso’s website introduces both the why and the how behind its product in simple terms. Its homepage tells a story that guides users from problems to solutions to CTAs for content offers, with scroll-triggered animations throughout.
What we like: Executive search group Cherche Susan hosts a website that gets straight to the point: Need talent? The company will find it. The website’s pages are each an exercise in subtly prompting action. Though the copy and CTAs on the page encourage you to explore its services, it never feels disruptive or intrusive.
What we like: Bikebear might just have the most creative home page on our list. These marketers and web designers use bold colors and fonts, playful copy, and, most importantly, animations of bears wearing sunglasses. It’s proof that "corporate” doesn’t have to mean "bland.”
5. Blavity Inc.
What we like: Blavity Inc. is a network of brands serving a Black millennial audience, offering up a website that commands attention right away with an outstanding full-screen video. This fast-paced introduction to the brand manages to sum everything up in seconds, and an overlaid CTA means you don’t even need to scroll to take action.
What we like: Calendly allows anyone to make appointments on your personal calendar without the confusing back-and-forth that often comes with scheduling. The website is another impressive example of what modern SaaS company sites should be: User-friendly and straight to the point.
7. Garden Eight
What we like: The corporate website for digital design studio Garden Eight is certainly a unique one — it features an interactive canvas of fleeting animal-like shapes. Garden Eight describes its website as "playful yet humble”, and we couldn’t agree more.
What we like: Apex Transformations has a stunning site that promotes its renovation and construction services. The careful attention to detail taken on these pages makes for a seamless browsing experience, including bits of copy and the occasional animation a sparse configuration. Be sure to explore the entire site as each page offers its own unique and clever design detail.
9. Asset Class
What we like: Asset Class builds software for private equity, commercial lending, and venture capital firms, and the site’s straightforward design makes this SaaS company feel more approachable. Our favorite aspect of this design is its consistent color scheme, which carries over from CTA buttons to text to icons to even product screenshots.
10. Will Ventures
What we like: VC firm Will Ventures was founded by former NFL and Harvard athletes to fund sports, media, and consumer brands. This website does an excellent job of not just explaining the company’s beliefs and mission, but encouraging aspiring entrepreneurs to take the leap as well.
What we like: Here’s another architectural firm site that knocks it out of the park. Oh, Architects create inclusive environments that are eco-friendly, an approach that shines through across the website. In particular, the recurring use of background gradients to divide parts of the web page is expertly done and shapes the user experience without stealing attention away from the main content.
What we like: Adobe’s website is sleek and informative, maintaining consistency with its products and reputation. Take some time to explore some of the featured product pages — each one is uniquely tailored to the product it’s promoting, be it video software or a vector graphic editor. While each page has its own unique flair, the entire site comes together as one.
What we like: Citizen creates powerful campaigns for nonprofits and businesses alike. While this site is simple in design, you can appreciate how well it structures its information and navigation. Everything you’d need to know about the agency is available and presented logically, and each case study sticks to a format that’s easy to follow.
What we like: Humain’s website includes visually stunning cursor effects. Moving your mouse reveals hidden illustrations, text, and menu items. It makes you want to explore the entire home page to find bits of info you might otherwise miss.
15. KD Capital
What we like: On the note of awesome cursor effects, here’s another. The creators of the KD Capital website designed a circular cursor that illuminates each photo on the homepage with color. This effect ties well into the agency’s tagline "Finding the circles amongst the squares.”
What we like: Stord is a B2C and B2B supply chain management company, and this website couldn’t make its purpose any clearer. As you scroll, you’re brought on a tour of a virtual city, each stop being a different step in the chain. This one-of-a-kind site is a great inspiration for ambitious designers.
17. Creative Theory
What we like: A self-described "culture-focused marketing agency,” Creative Theory boasts a captivating and cohesive site that drives home its mission and highlights its best work. The "who we are” section showcases its leadership team photos with extraordinary hover effects.
18. Vaayu Tech
What we like: Vaayu is the first of its kind, a software tool for measuring a business’s carbon footprint in real-time. A one-of-a-kind idea deserves a one-of-a-kind website, and Vaayu delivers. Its user experience is delightful all the way through and stays engaging despite minimal use of color. Note the web texture in the background too.
What we like: Film production company Honeytrap uses its website design to put its films at the center of your attention. Users can scroll through the list of directors, view a short silent clip of their work in a full-screen view, and click to learn more about the person behind the camera. If you need to quickly immerse users in your work, consider using this innovative approach.
20. Make Us Care
What we like: When your branding agency is named "Make Us Care,” you need a website to match. Make Us Care offers the kind of experience that plays with your expectations as you scroll, introducing new shapes, colors, and brand stories that leave a lasting impression. As the designers said themselves, "We played it safe for too long and let our clients’ work do all the talking. We now feel like ourselves.”
What we like: A tea shop might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a "corporate” website, but this design is too good to pass up. The homepage is enough to draw you in and bring you back in time with gorgeous animation. It’s even interactive — try moving your mouse around to conjure rough waters.
22. Hive Streaming
What we like: Hive Streaming is an internal video communication service that employs a top-tier B2B website. The content team discloses the right information at the right time to keep potential customers engaged. There are no technical gimmicks here, just great content and visual design.
What we like: MeanPug’s site is colorful, compelling, and catchy. There are lighthearted animations, copy that references the company’s staff as "pugs,” and even an embedded game of Tetris you can play (and, if you’re like me, lose quickly).
24. Sally On!
What we like: This website is one more example of what’s possible by blending tasteful design with powerful content. The homepage gets right to the point, stating its mission to advance women in business (and citing some stats to go with it), and its bright colors and consistently upbeat copy establish this agency as the one you’d want to work with.
What we like: HubSpot’s website was structured to get you the information you want with as little friction as possible, whether that’s signing up for a demo, viewing products and pricing, reading the blog, or taking an inbound marketing course.
"Corporate website” doesn’t mean "boring website.”
Your website is often the first impression people get of your company, and they have a tall order to fill. The best websites simultaneously keep us engaged, teach visitors about what the company does, convey a brand message, and look good.
That doesn’t mean corporate sites have to be run-of-the-mill. Sure, you could opt for something conventional and move on. But to make a strong impression and delight your audience, you’ll need to go the extra mile. These websites did it, and you can too.
