Welcome to our roundup of the best websites launched (or relaunched with significant updates) this . The Summer’s almost over, vacations are less frequent, and we’re starting to see businesses gearing up for the Fall. This month we’ve included some great e-commerce, some design agencies with a difference, and some products with marketing challenges.

There’s a huge trend for bold color, subtle animations, and scrolling effects this month. And not before time, big type is making a comeback. Enjoy!

 

Epicurrence

The creative conference for creatives that don’t do conferences, Epicurrence 2018 takes place in Yosemite later this month. The accompanying site uses stunning illustrations and subtle parallax to draw the user into the spirit of the event.

Angelo Sanvito

Angelo Sanvito is an illustrator, UI and UX designer, and motion graphics designer from Milan, Italy. His simple site shows off the very best of these skills with a series of portraits of famous artists. When it comes to personal sites, it’s the epitome of “Don’t tell, show”.

Atomize Design System

The Site for the Atomize Design System is beautifully minimal. It of course follows its own best practices, but there are also some excellent details. Take a look at the custom icons for the different features all based on the branding. Detail like that takes time.

003

 

Lisa & Ryan

Picking a design agency to take your brand forward is a difficult task. Lisa & Ryan do a great job of explaining who they are, why they’re a great team, and why you should pick them.

004

 

Bellvoye

If you’re looking for a wee dram, then the Scottish Highlands is probably your first port of call. But if you’re looking for something a little different, then you might consider meandering south to France, thanks to this exquisite website for Bellvoye.

Swiss Typefaces

Swiss Typefaces is a type foundry with an audacious attitude to color. With so many type presented in black and white, it’s refreshing to see hot pinks, acid greens, and lots of magenta all thrown into a single design.

006

 

Eleven Plants for Dum Dums

Part design exercise, part typography sampler, part horticultural guide, Eleven Plants for Dum Dums is a beautifully designed single page site with awesome illustrations galore. You’ve rarely seen green so lovingly applied.

007

 

Posthaste

Do you remember the video arcade classic Paperboy? No, me neither (ahem). For those too young to have wasted hours on Atari’s worldwide smash, MailChimp have released this fun game. Steer Freddie through the streets delivering as much mail as you can.

008

 

Boy Smells

Purveyor of scented candles for men and women, Boy Smells have gone super bold with their type, and super committed with their restricted color palette. The result is a site that feels very modern, and very confident.

009

 

End Family Fire

Family fire is the unhappy occurrence of an accidental shooting as a result of an improperly stored firearm. The End Family Fire website leverages art direction and interaction to educate on the potential risks, so you can keep your family safe.

Appointed

Great work is helped by a great workspace, and of course by great design tools. Appointed’s site perfectly captures the spirit of the workspaces it is trying to create by exuding pure calm.

011

 

Goat

Goat are selling something difficult: second hand shoes. Professionally cleaned, and graded, they offer everything from rare sneakers to everyday kicks. To grab your attention, Goat uses intrigue right from the get-go, this is a great high-impact design.

012

 

Coralie Reiter

Coralie Reiter makes exquisite jewellery out of natural materials like shells. The delicate nature of the items being displayed is perfectly balanced by the use of pastels throughout the site to add life, and energy to the collection.

013

 

Art & History Museum

We’re used to hero images featuring smiling models peering out at us. Art & History Museum brilliantly subverts the cliché with a comical look from a stone figure. The rest of the site for the Brussels museum is just as carefully curated.

014

 

Renegade Craft

Renegade Craft is another site using bold typography, subtle (and not so subtle) animation, and bold color blocks. Promoting craft practices across the USA, the site’s a positive use of parallax.

015

 

Hawkins New York

Selling interior design products is difficult in a competitive market, but sites like Hawkins New York are finding a new design direction by merging classic minimalism and a new-found love of color to ply their wares.

016

 

Arche68

The color blocking and dynamic typography of Arche68 is almost an assault on the senses. It takes some clicking to discover the purpose of the site (they sell accessories) but the bold approach to design is right on-brand.

017

 

Curate Labs

There are lots of design ideas on the , but rarely does a design agency lay its cards on the table to the extent that Curate Labs have. They tell you what they believe, because that’s at the heart of what they do.

018

 

Moving Brands

Moving Brands present their portfolio split across the screen using the unique geometry of their logo. With clients ranging from Apple to Sony, you’d be right to expect a creative approach, and they deliver.

019

 

Stack

Stack offers subscriptions to a diverse range of magazines for those who like their print media a little more random. As a source of design inspiration, not least thanks to its bold color palette, it’s fantastic to browse through.
