It’s no secret that people who want to stand out from the crowd and persuade prospective clients that they are the best in the business should consider creating their own website. Think of a website as a longer, more customizable CV. You can display your work, talk about your previous projects, not to mention allow part of your personality to shine through. Really, the possibilities are endless when it comes to designing your own website. Because we want to provide you with some inspiration, we thought we would look at 4 great personal websites today.
The images, the colors, and the logo are the heart and soul of Silverton’s website.
4 Personal Websites That Stand Out
1. Sarah Chang
The reason why we like Chang’s website is because it is minimalist yet really effective. She has somehow managed to sum up who she is and the work she’s done in just a few lines, and it is working like a charm. She also brings her own personal touch through her thought sketches (which by the way make for a really interesting read). All in all, this website contains a little bit of everything: writing, photography, musings, and the social media profiles where you can find Chang.
2. Anthony Wiktor
Wiktor’s website relies a lot on visuals, and that is what makes it so entertaining. You get to watch a video of him as soon as you access the website, and then you can scroll down to wonder at the many clients that Wiktor has worked with. His “about” section is brief and to the point, and you can even scroll through the awards he’s won. Spoiler alert: there are many of them! Wiktor definitely manages to balance the written information and the visuals in a very effective way.
3. Hannah Silverton
One look at Hannah Silverton’s personal website and you won’t be able to forget it. The images, the colors, and the logo are the heart and soul of Silverton’s website. However, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t follow up with relevant information about who she is and what kind of work she’s done. If you scroll down, you will be able to see all the fields that interest her and find out more about her personality. Finally, the amount of projects she’s worked on complete this really beautiful and informative personal website.
4. Allison Stadd
If you were thinking of putting a bit more of your personality into your website, then the example provided by Stadd will definitely appeal to you. Her website is client-oriented, which means that you will feel as if she’s addressing you directly as you scroll further down. She incorporates a lot of humor and gorgeous visuals that definitely improve our experience. Also, the website is not at all cluttered. It simply points out the essentials without you having to look for them for too long. What more could you possibly want from a personal website?
We hope these 4 personal websites have inspired you as much as they’ve inspired us. Remember that the sky is the limit when it comes to designing your own!
