Short and sweet, yet fun and unique. These sites have a great selection of photos, info, and super cool interface all wrapped up in a single page. Bellow is a collection of some of my favorite awesome one-pagers, check them out!
Unique Interface Designs
Los Morochos de la Usina
Super creative and entertaining, filled with fun animated details. I especially like the effects connected with mouse movement and the bat graphic, pull it down to read the rest of the text!
I absolutely love this interface it is so creative and innovative done in a familiar format uniquely put in website format.
Really cool page effects tied to mouse movement!
Minimal and easy to use but still fun with drop down text building off of a nice graphic.
Simple but a refreshingly unique setup. The way the videos, text, and cute contact icons appear and fade away is smoothly and cooly done.
The Cupcake Factory
Awesome detailed graphics, vibrant colors and especially impressive are the chocolate hearts that give the illusion of depth.
The bright blue drop down banners are fun, the use of color, smooth scrolling, and graphics give what could be a traditional setup a personalized feel.
Amusing and super detailed graphics give the vertical scroll a new and creative feel to the page, be sure to scroll allll the way up and down.
Ultra-crisp and cool, clean vibe. It has a minimal feel but is still a comprehensive display of his work. I really, really like the slide out side menu.
Easy to navigate, great use of photos and the fixed background makes you feel like you are in a wine cellar.
Has a fun snowy feel with a nice mix of photos, video and information while the fixed navigation bar keeps it super user friendly.
Ladybird School of Motoring
Unique layout with impressive attention to detail, like the effect of the wheels turning, and the moving dual layered horizon that adds a great effect of depth and movement. The car even goes in reverse!
The traditional fixed navigation bar is complimented with little hand written directional links and arrows that give the site a unique, personal feel.
Festa das Comadres
Fun and colorful page bursting with photos and whimsical graphics, I particularly like the fixed position menu and logo.
I really enjoy the setup of the fixed background photo and table of contents with scrolling info. Vibrant colors and nice drop down bullet lists.
Like the page above it, it’s nice that the whole page doesn’t scroll just the info. Its a nice touch how the pictures of dogs change.
This time the photos and info scroll horizontally, which is a nice change of pace. Even cooler is when you click the bottom link the menu that is fixed actually scrolls upward for some fun, extra options. Unique.
Trendy and bright simple to use interface packed full of music, video, and other info. Fun mouse activated typography effects and cool changing photo background.
Tyler Fink Photography
Super minimalistic but it works. All the contact options you need while a nice showcase of photos change in the background. Love the catch phrase.
Short and sweet, perfect amount of information that smoothly scrolls transparently over top of a great background photo.
Cooly unique with a nicely simple feel that’s enjoyably light on text. I love the little icon buttons as creative navigation tools.
Bright, ultra modern feel and very clean professional look. The expanding side menu is a nice touch and so is the project info that appears when you hover your mouse over the gorgeous changing photos.
I absolutely love this site! Not only am I a huge fan of the subject matter but all of the details from the interface to the graphics are super well done. Full of tons of mixed navigation options and a fun, unique interactive setup that make this site feel like a treasure hunt.
The Evolution of the Web
This one you have to check out for yourself. It’s not quite a site, more an interactive work of art, but I wanted to include it. It is definitely unique and awesomely done.
