As a designer, you often find that you have to work with constraints. The project has a brief, and – ultimately – what the client says goes. If they prefer a particular look, style and feel then that’s the direction that you need to go in. It’s not necessarily a bad thing – constraints can help to guide you towards the right design for the job – but it’s often not as fun as being your own client.
When you’re designing your own company site, however, whether you’re an independent designer or work for an agency, you have more creative control. You have more freedom to put together a site that looks how you want it to look, and you can make bigger, bolder design decisions that stand out.
It’s interesting to see what other design agencies and small studios are doing with their own websites, because it can quite often be an indicator of the type of work they’d love to do but that perhaps wouldn’t work quite as well for their clients. Or, it can be a good indicator of the theme and trend for designs over the next year or so. In either case, looking at the visual aesthetics and choices made by the smaller design and development studios can be a great source of inspiration. We’ve brought together a collection of some of the more interesting, creative and inspiring website designs of design studios to hopefully help give you some inspiration for your next project.
