2015 was another exciting year for nonprofit web design. It was full of vibrant color palettes, new geometric elements, engaging micro-interactions, and an emphasis on scrolling over clicking.
We've put together a list of 10 beautiful nonprofit websites that are using the latest design trends. If you're planning on redesigning your own website and are looking for new ideas , you've come to the right place.
Enjoy, and get inspired!
Together We Feed pairs natural colors with generous whitespace to create a clean and inviting website. The interior pages feature a single-column layout, which means no sidebars or submenus taking up valuable real estate!
The website for Sharing America's Marrow uses a beautiful combination of video, photography and vector illustrations. Animations and interesting page load effects give the site a lively look and feel.
The website for Camillus House and Health uses large, high quality photography to share stories of the people they serve. Each interior page has a header for displaying photos and embedded videos, and a footer for calls-to-action.
The Heart Kids NZ website uses dramatic photography to evoke strong emotions. Micro-interactions and animations create an engaging user experience for visitors. A bright accent color draws attention to important calls-to-action.
The website for the Jewish Community Center of Dallas manages to be sophisticated and playful at the same time, with vibrant images arranged in grid layouts on a dark background.
The COINS Foundation website is another wonderful example of illustration and photography working together harmoniously. This website does a great job of storytelling by using animated illustrations and embedded videos.
The Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce website welcomes visitors with a stunning image header and a unique color palette. (You've gotta love a chamber that uses chartreuse!)
The ReWork Project website tells a moving story with an interactive video player embedded on the homepage. Another interesting element is the repeating geometric shape used throughout the design.
Bright colors, unique geometric elements and engaging hover effects are just a few of the small details that make this economic development website stand out from the crowd.
Some of our favorite features of this beautiful site include the full-page image header, collapsible menu and long-scrolling page layout.
