Design Trends: 25 Awesome iPhone & iPad App Website Designs


Mobile is blowing up. O.K., maybe it’s already blown up and I’m just a bit behind the times, but regardless of my lack of technical savvy, mobile apps make up a huge market and today I want to look over one of the most recent trends I’ve seen in web design – iPhone and iPad app website designs.

One of the main things you see in every one of the examples below is a large iPhone or iPad image, which fits the design perfectly because it instantly lets the visitor know what type of website you’re on.

One thing that you begin to notice after this similarity is that a lot of the designs have a general web layout that mimics the look and feel of the app itself. For instance, with the Bord app, the website features a lot of the same design elements that the app itself features.

With the growing popularity of mobile browsing and mobile phone sales growing every day, I don’t see this design trend leaving any time soon. It’s kind of like the mac screen on a designers portfolio website, it’s here to stay … forever.

Enjoy the visual inspiration below and if you know of an iPhone or iPad app website that isn’t listed below but you feel should be, don’t hesitate to leave a comment and let us know.

20 Infographic Driven Website Designs – the Latest Web Design Trend

Infographics have now permeated through all aspects of the modern web world. And it seems that they become more valuable as our need to understand a complex content increases. So, 2011 is supposed to be the year of a huge growth of the infographics influence with the ever-increasing variety of infographic driven designs.

As you search the web you’ll come across a wide range of interactive and graphical maps, charts, diagrams, blackboards, instructional designs and their concepts being copied and applied to web layouts. More and more home page backgrounds now integrate some visualized data about a particular project, site navigation, or some key content that is to be conveyed. Why is it so popular? Because it is unique and different, and there is so much happening on the page that it makes the visitor want to linger and descry everything. Through blending some catchy graphics and text, the big picture concept is immediately thrown to viewers. And such visual promotes a new creative way of thinking about the information giving, it helps perceive new relationships and form various interpretations.

Have a look on the examples of infographic driven designs given below and that will make you more clear about the concept. The trick is that such websites provide the web users with the best possible direction and guidance within a richly useful, colorful and pleasant environment.
