Standout features:

  • Calendar for planning meals
  • Bold CTAs
  • Intuitive user journey

Daily Menu website is a brainchild of a Delaware-based web design agency CityTech. It is a health-oriented portal with daily nutrition plans, recipes and fast food delivery.

The space above the fold is reserved for hi-res images of the current day’s breakfast, lunch and dinner plan. A prominent, rounded CTA button in vibrant yellow invites users to add the selection to their cart. Sticky navigation menu on the top of the page is separated into two halves with the centralized Daily Menu logo.

A calendar function provides insight into the online restaurant’s future meal plans so that users can plan their nutrition ahead. Unique value propositions such as different meals every day, organic products only and a money-back guarantee are prominently displayed on the website.

The entire websites relies on white, black and yellow as brand colors, aided by the professionally-shot images of intricate dishes and food. The typography is kept simple as well, with undefined sans serif varieties acting as the website’s primary and secondary typography.

8. Gritz Brewing eShop By All Creative

Standout features:

  • Micro-animations and dynamic effects
  • Custom illustrations
  • Great-looking product pages

Gritz is an Italian brewery that produces gluten-free craft beers. Their website, designed and developed by All Creative agency, is the expansion of the branding work they have conducted for this client.

The website is tailored according to the brewery’s specific requests and delivers a smart and intuitive user experience. Beautiful label illustrations of each brew’s bottle is fully integrated into the website’s design, starting with the opening screen of bottles lined up against the gritty light brown background.

Logo’s vintage-looking script font fits in nicely with the more conservative and formal sans-serif typeface used for the website’s copy. Each product has a dedicated page that follows visual cues found on its label.

The amazing attention to detail is especially apparent in small, animated beer icons that accumulate according to the selected quantity of bottles when the user adds them to the cart. This not only provides the most welcome eye candy, but also facilitates the shopping experience as shoppers can keep track of the quantity of items easily.

Dynamic microinteraction effects like bubbles rising upwards while scrolling create an immersive experience that users wish to engage with for prolonged periods of time.

9. Maison Éclat By Caspar Eberhard

Standout features:

  • Interesting main menu effect
  • Bold use of unconventional colors
  • Thoughtfully executed product pages

Caspar Eberhard’s website design for Maison Éclat, champagne connoisseur website and eShop, takes a radically different approach compared to all the previous entries on this list.

Instead of soothing and restrained tones, a very vivid, electric green comes charging from the get-go, acting as a frame for the opening (somewhat arty) image.

The main menu is again divided into a left and a right half with the brand logo at the center. Hovering over one menu item opens a drop-down submenu with an interesting effect – the colors/light of the rest of the sight go dim.

As the user scrolls down, the website goes from green to white and the main menu also turns into its inverse/negative version. The product pages focus on high-res photos of the champagne bottle, its name and its price all on a single screen.

Once the user scrolls, more valuable product information is located on the left, while the Add to Cart button occupies the right hand of the screen. A bevvy of similar products is located at the very bottom, so as not to distract the shopper from their journey towards conversion.

10. MacCoffee Cappuccino Di Torino By Kruchenas

Standout features:

  • Fully gamified user experience
  • Attention-grabbing full-screen video
  • Option of sharing a personal gamified product on social media

Kruchenas’ website for MacCoffee Cappuccino Di Torino is a unique entry in this list as it uses gamification to attract, engage and retain its visitors.

The website’s opening sequence has a full-screen video in the background, telling a story of a young woman’s morning routine (that involves a cup of foamy MacCofee Cappuccino) taking a comically dramatic turn.

The twist here is that, in order to proceed to the main portion of the website, a user has to draw a circle with their mouse/trackpad “to make coffee”. This activates the main single-page website that also comes with a series of similar gamified tasks. Completing them takes the visitor through different stages of their user journey.

With each completed task, the accompanying messaging explains the benefits of this product, which finishes with adding the chocolate powder to the cup – also shareable via the user’s social media.

By mimicking the process of making a cup of coffee in a virtual environment, MacCoffee Cappuccino Di Torino's website manages to prolong the average time on site durations for each visitor.

11. Fortune Oysters By Dose Media

Standout features:

  • Plenty of details and Easter eggs
  • Intertwining images and videos
  • A look that aligns with the brand’s persona

Dose Media’s website for Fortune Oysters reflects Nova Scotia’s seafood producer’s youthful and rebellious brand identity. The garish yet muted tone of its illustrations, images, and videos emphasize the product and the enjoyment associated with it.

As the visitor scrolls down primarily the black and white site with brown accents, hidden Easter eggs will appear when the mouse cursor hovers over certain parts for unexpected interactive elements. These scrolling trigger effects and discrete animations make this one of the most detail-oriented websites on this list.

The main menu navigation at the top of the page moves to the top right when the visitor scrolls down and adopts a more compact hamburger menu form.

Slightly gritty sans serif typography is on-brand and quite legible, especially in headings and taglines that come in massive-size fonts. The contrasting color palette makes the website easy to navigate, with all the right elements popping out quite visibly in front of the visitor.
