The Best Landing Page Design 2010-2013

No surprises here, you’ve seen them all before. This is a selection of best known landing pages on the web. They all share two important things: great conversion rates and pronounced beauty.

 

1. MailChimp

Hot: A great example of a landmark landing page, combining all the right elements including a big headline, action button, and a memorable mascot.
Not: Unfortunately, it is now replaced with a different and noticeably less appealing design.

 

2. Simple

Hot: Leave your bank for Web 2.0 aesthetics. This site was among the first corporate websites that introduced one-page design with long scrolling.

 

3. Mint

Hot: An early example that showed how to successfully fit corporate design into a Web 2.0 look and feel. They did a lot of testing with different headline formats.

 

4. Square

Hot: A very influential design that inspired the movement of Bootstrap websites.

 

5. Kaleidoscope

Hot: Inspired the movement of “attention to detail” landing pages, with a lot of fine tuning of graphics.

 

6. Zendesk

Hot: Combine a Buddha mascot with a nice shade of green and you get this funky zen experience that everybody recognizes.

 

7. Xero

Hot: Fresh, minimal and straight to the point. Very nice use of the turquoise color scheme.

 

8. Groupon

Hot: Highly influential, unique and memorable.
Not: Brought a bandwagon of copycats.

 

9. Assistly

Hot: At its peak, it brought some freshness with its purple design and nice iconography.
Not: Fresh at the moment, but not as timeless as MailChimp.

 

10. Apple.com

Hot: This list would not be complete without Apple.
Not: Jony Ive Redesigns Things.
