Each of the sites below demonstrate the latest web design trends being used right now to make beautiful association and nonprofit websites. If you are looking to redesign your association’s website, get inspired by these amazing association designs.
Well hello! Bright and friendly images and colors on Colorado Apartment Association’s (CAA) site welcome the user and echo the natural beauty of the state. Images subtly follow you as scroll down and are greeted by slide-in menus and infographics. Even CAA’s logo pops up to greet the visitor as they first enter the site.
This newly redesigned site is clean and modern. The menu drop-downs flip and “pop” into place, nudging the visitor’s eyes to the menu items. The site also features a nice use of video, which introduces you to what ISELP is.
The use of real images on National Parks Conservation Association (NCPA) is stunningly beautiful. Similar to Colorado Apartment Association, NPCA lets their park’s natural beauty do the talking for them. The clean calls-to-action and fun navigation icons below the fold make this a well-rounded association site.
“Diverse” is a word that may best describe Greater MSP’s newly designed website. Their homepage features a unique and colorful header with hover effects, gradient overlays, and tons of great content just below the fold.
Using overlapping images and a bright, green and blue color scheme, California Employers Associations homepage invites the visitor to view more content hiding just below the fold.
Greater Grads OKC’s home page features a stunning hero image and large, decorative text that compliments the doodled icons above each menu item.
A stunning landscape hero image accompanied by menu’s that ‘slide in’ from both sides of the screen encourage visitors to click exclusive membership calls-to-action or view upcoming events on International Society for Transgenic Technologies’ site.
Big, bold, sans-serif text makes Association of Talent Agent’s design design eye catching and impactful. The out-of-focus homepage image accentuates the menu and text and intrigues the eye to scroll for more content below the fold.
Naples Area Board of Realtors bright site features an event module and a row of call-to-action buttons along the bottom of the home screen panel for quicker navigation in addition to the main menu items.
Baldwin County Association of Realtor’s awe-inspiring site features interactive geometric shapes, current real estate statistics and an all encompassing hero image that consumes the page and features a quick and easy property search. As you navigate below, the menu detaches from the image to follow you incase you need it.
Loud and proud. American Lung Association’s website uses bold text and massive images to proudly promote their cause and teach others how to get involved. They even occasionally swap out their hero image for a video that covers the entire screen.
