55 Really Creative And Unique Blog Design Showcase: Inspiration

Posted in Inspiration, Showcase, Web Interfaces, WordPress • Posted on 36 Comments

title-design-blog-inspirationThere are millions of blogs around the world, so it’s really a challenge to stand out with unique design. Maybe somebody will tell, that all matters is content, but I strongly disagree. Right now, my own blog design looks quite miserable, so I really know that matters. If you leave professional look and feeling you’ll convert one time visitors into long-run subscribers so much easier.

This time I wanted to showcase really successful and creative blog designs I found through a lot of searching and comparing to give necessary inspiration for you, and actually for myself too a little bit. I divided all 55 blog designs in three categories – Dark Design Showcase 1-10, Colorful and Very Creative Design Showcase 11-45 and Clean And Elegant Design Showcase 46-55. Hope You enjoy this one!

    Really great designs thanks for sharing. My own personal point of view is that is really important that the design fit the niche that the blog is designed to meet, and sometimes that plain or minimal

    I write a seven sentence daily blog for creative people so I don’t wish to make it too visual because it is all about the seven sentences. Every single sentence is important and to many visuals will actually affect the words in each creative sentence.

    How do you custom design for someone? Is there a sit down procedure that you do, where you survey them, talk them through their blog strategy etc? Also how big a role does SEO play or limit your designing?

    Thanks for putting this together, Dainis. I got some really good ideas from looking at some of the blogs. I also saw a little visitor survey app on the Monofactor website that is provided by KissInsights that I plan to use. I think it is really important as a designer to stay in touch with what other people are doing…and an article like this makes it easy to do that. Thanks

    I totally agree with you that it is not only the content that will have a person’s eyes glued to a blog much less participate in it effectively. It is first the design of the blog that will attract a person to the blog and subsequently to its content. Having gone through the 55 designs I must say I was really impressed and only one word stood out; perfection. On the blogs there was to be found variety, color and class. They looked like someone has taken their time and employed such creativity to come up with them. Previously I was not a fun of blogs with dark designs but now I am a convert. The stuff that the 55 blogs is made of is what should go into the creation of blogs.
