5 Great Website Designs from Big Brands

At MSM DesignZ, we spend a lot of time developing things for the web, for sure.

But we also spend a lot of time consuming the web, which means that when we see great products or ideas on the web, we’re often appreciative (and, in some cases, in awe) of those ideas.

In recent years especially, examples of excellent web design have begun to pop up everywhere, particularly from some of the larger brands. Here are some of our favorites.

1. Nike

Why We Like It

Though Nike’s website isn’t necessarily standout like a few of the following examples, their storefront is easy to navigate and, well, it still looks pretty.

2. Pepsi

Why We Like It

Pepsi took a truly untraditional approach in their new website, focusing less on their own products, and more on the natural conversations that occur (and that they trigger) around the Pepsi brand. Pepsi definitely took a page out of Microsoft’s book, going with a tiled interface that gives viewers bits and pieces of information at a glance.

3. Mini Japan

Why We Like It

Not unlike Ford’s ‘Go Further’ campaign, Mini’s website aims to sell their products with a visually appealing storyline that exemplifies the beauty of those products. In this case, it’s the Mini Cooper S Clubman. The website is simple, intuitive and gives consumers a great indication of how the product works, and how it can benefit them.

4. McDonalds 

Why We Like It

Even if McDonalds food is something that you’ve found to be completely repulsive, you can’t help but love their website. It’s colorful, inviting, and simple to interact with. Having a website that is functional in its simplicity is always better than having something that’s overly complicated, or cluttered.

5. Tesla Motors

Why We Like It

For some reason, car companies just happen to do a fantastic job when it comes to marketing their products online in a beautiful way that implores its visitors to explore every nook and cranny of the website.
