Large typography and diagonal lines make websites more eye-catching. It is very difficult to create a website that is both attractive and user-friendly by using angled shapes. Some of them tend to look a bit chaotic. We’ve looked around the web and selected 10 beautiful websites which use angled graphics, to give you inspiration for your next projects.
These website designs mostly belong to portfolio websites, be it for individual creatives or studios. A portfolio website is basically a gallery of ready-made works of its owner. This website may contain information about a person, contact data, interesting articles etc. However, the major mission of a portfolio website is to showcase the photo works. This project is one of the simplest in terms of realization: there are not many pages and not too much text here. At the same time, there are many photos. Page design and photo quality are a priority here. The rest of the elements recede into the background.
The goal of creating a portfolio website is to present the talents of a person in the most favorable light to attract new clients. This is a great promo tool many creatives take advantage of. Here are some great examples of inspirational websites with some truly unique concepts and designs.
We hope that these creative websites with angled graphics will inspire you for your future projects. Check them out and let us know which ones of these websites did you like most! Write us a comment in the comment section below.
