The footer, a crucial but frequently underappreciated component, offers a direct entry into the architecture of the contents and displays some of the most critical data on your website.

Everything appears to happen on the “main” part of the website, making it seem that visitors don't pay much attention to the elements below the fold. Fortunately, consumers have learned to seek footers, and their use has developed into a well-known and established design pattern.

Footers make locating information easier, especially when the visitor misses it on the header, menu or navigation space. The design should be straightforward and clear, the typography legible, and the footer aesthetics must match the website’s. The sitemap, contact information, social media connections, privacy statement and terms of use should all be included.

So, how to tell if you’ve got it all right? Check out these highly creative and practical footer designs and get inspired.

Standout Features:

  • Black-and-yellow aesthetics
  • Customized social media illustrations
  • “Jump back top” button

The guys behind IOTA Infotech don’t shy away from their modern, laid-back yet serious work ethics. As creative geniuses, every part of their website has quirky elements that help the team showcase their extensive creativity. And their footer is not an exception!

Their footer leverages the modern yet evergreen black-and-yellow swag as the background of the footer. A horizontal yellow arch breaks the pitch-black screen across the layout. The majority of the yellow space is filled with social media links. However, each logo was redesigned to be more “IOTAian.”

Beneath the spooky takes on the social media logos, you’ll find quick links to some significant web pages on the site. In the bottom right corner, you have the “jump back top” option to help you quickly start again and enjoy the visual journey one more time.

  • A "wavey" gradient
  • Serif typography in the headlines
  • Pill buttons for the CTAs

The Inner Alignment is an organization specializing in helping reduce stress at the office. It aims to equip leaders with a mindfulness toolbox to help employees thrive, even in stressful situations.

Their website design, created by Kait Schmidek, helps build a relaxing and soothing atmosphere that remains intact in their footer design. The main element contributing to this effect is the "wavey" horizontal background gradient that starts with warm colors and gradually slides to cool ones.

They invite you to keep exploring, reach out to them or become a follower of their options and services. The spot for your email and the sign-up button is both in pill form, so they're difficult to miss. The gradient is "populated" by three bolded serif headlines that are clean and easy to read.

The "canvas" is interrupted by a distinctive, scaled-up call to action with a subtle transparency effect that provides an animated appearance. The liquid design resembles a dark and mysterious lava lamp.

Below the headlined CTA, you'll find the vital information presented in a footer, all maintaining the color schemes and effects of the headline.
