Web Design Principles to Look Out in this Showcase
In general, all of the websites in this showcase embody great web design. Great design is a concern with any website, not just ones built using Webflow.
The most important web design principles you should look out for in this Webflow showcase are:
This is the most important starting point for any good digital design. When building a website, you need to consider how the information is arranged, organized, and emphasized.
While you may want to rush into flashy visuals to make the best looking site possible, getting information architecture right is like eating your vegetables: it should always come first.
How are pages composed? What elements have the highest priority? Does each page pass the "squint test", where the most important thing on the page is the one that's most prominent when you squint? Is each page organized in a way that gives the visitor a clear next action?
Contrast and Style
Contrast is crucial for giving any composition balance, be it or a tactile product, or a painting or illustration. Websites are digital, but they are no exception to this.
Webflow offers a lot of avenues to design a website with great contrast. Most of this contrast comes up in the styling.
How does contrast get used to emphasize content and steer the reader's focus? What tone do the colors, the spacing, and the general style set for the reader?
Interaction and Animation
Any conversation about animations should start with the caveat that they can be excessive. When used with restraint and focus, animation is a powerful tool to help steer the viewer's attention. Text is inferior to speech when it comes to imparting emotion.
Well-utilized animation can overcome this, by giving text a sense of inflection and pace. Webflow's features to support animation are significant. Most commonly, Webflow designers animate individual elements in their project to draw attention in response to scroll events.
How does animation give a website a sense of "aliveness"? How are voice-like "inflections" created through proper animation design? What are the different ways animation helps the shape the mood of the page, and even its energy levels?
There are plenty of other design themes to keep in mind. We recommend going through each of these websites and taking notes on what you like and don't like. This will help you identify themes that you can then use for the design of your own website.
Mobot a QA platform that uses actual robots to automate app testing on real mobile devices. Mobot's human-supervised robots automate mobile app tests with live, physical devices, catching issues that emulators, virtual devices, and software-only frameworks can't.
They eliminates thousands of hours of manual testing, increases testing efficiency and physical device coverage, and captures more bugs in-app before releases than software can catch on its own.
Why We Love It: Contrast, Video, and And Interaction

Mobot's marketing website also takes advantage of Webflow's fast-loading video components to visualize Mobot's robot testing services. They also use Webflow's content collections to host their blog, which maintains consistent styles with the homepage.

The Biolinq website's most striking Webflow feature is parallax scrolling, which helps create a sense of depth and material.
Ready makes calendars live multiplayer workspaces to instantly make your meetings the very best they can be.
Why We Love It: Animations to Put Text in Motion
Visiting Ready's homepage feels like hearing a wonderful, lively, (no pun) animated pitch. Many of their graphics are animated, and their animations are scroll-dependent.
Ready's landing page is designed to keep you focused on key words that that way want you to remember.
Their Webflow website style takes advantage of neutral textured backgrounds to give it a feeling like paper. Their page features colorful 3D art, and the neutral background textures help the vibrant art stand out.
MONDAYS is a coffee shop in New Orleans with direct relationships with many of the greatest coffee producers around the world. They source incredible coffee and offer it through their online website. They're a fixture in their community in NOLA. Fun fact - I visited them on my last trip to the city. I can confirm that their aesthetic is as immaculate in person as it is on their site.
Why We Love It: Less is More!
The design of the MONDAYS Webflow site is a case study in keeping structure minimal. They introduce themselves and then let the style and visuals on the site do the rest of the work.
Their site is one of the best examples of how your unique brand can easily shine on a well-built Webflow instance. It has very high-resolution photos of their cafe interior, which load quickly thanks to Webflow's performance content distribution network (CDN).
They do a great job utilizing tooltips that only show on hover, including ones for nutrition facts. The Mondays site takes advantage of Webflow's ecommerce functionality as well.

6. Coming Soon Kit
Coming Soon Kit gives you out of the box tools necessary to nail any product launch.

Why We Love It: Gradients and Swipeable Elements

7. Caleco Films
Caleco Films is a motion animation agency that focuses on the creation of interactive assets. They've delivered all kinds of projects, from businesses with a learn / education component to their product marketing, to a high fidelity product "inspection" that becomes easier over the browser when the assets are interactive to user inputs like scrolling, panning, pinching, and swiping.
Whatever physical product your business sells, Caleco will make your customers want it more.
Why We Love It: It Lives Out the Value Prop Through the Design
The Caleco Webflow site demonstrates their commitment to the interactive asset creation process: an in-motion asset is within view at all times. It's a great example of how your customers can learn about your product by seeing it in action on your own site.
It features some of the best animations on this list. Note that these animations are most likely custom, as Webflow does not have as easy support for 3D-rotation animations baked into its core feature set. Note though that it isn't clear in its first screen, and could stand to be a bit more usable and clear as to what this site is for. This may work if all the traffic to the site is direct, but will be a huge drawback for channels like SEO.
8. Mindstate Design Labs
Mindstate Design Labs that focuses on psychadelic drug development for mental therapeutics. Their team is made up of biotech operators and experts.
Why We Love It: Clever Parallels Between the Product and the Website Design
Their site shows a slightly different approach to animations than other Webflow websites on this list. Not only are the animations constant, but they overlay with transformations that happen as a result of scrolling.
Namely, the pupil close-up on the homepage expands as you scroll down, emulating the pupil expansion of the eyes with psychedelics. There's a lot of inspiration to draw from here, especially when it comes to creative parallels between the design of your Webflow website and the actual line of work of your business.
9. Chertkov Art
Chertkov Art is a website of a of neo-expressionist painter named Alexander Chertkov. It contains the portfolio of his paintings, in very high resolution, that visitors can explore.
Why We Love It: A Design that Lets the Content Shine
Chertkov Art has striking animations that are very performant considering the high fidelity images that move around with each scroll. This site takes advantage of the many optimizations Webflow does under the hood to keep interactions snappy for site visitors.
The design on the Chertkov Art's Webflow website is fairly minimal. This makes sense though: the goal is to keep your focus on the the paintings Alexander has created, rather than to get you through a conversion funnel.
While Chertkov offers his paintings for sale here, he doesn't use Webflow's ecommerce functionality. Instead, you have to use the contact form on his website to reach out to him.
10. Sinkco Labs
Sinkco Labs creates protein-dense carbon negative products that capture 17kg of CO2 for every 1kg of protein used.
Why We Love It: Negative Space and Inverted Color
The Sinkco Labs company website how to use negative space for maximum impact. They introduce their brand color as the dominant color above the fold through a photo. They then repeat it as their dominant color throughout the site.
They took advantage of a cursor styling feature that feels just a little bit excessive, inverted the area underneath the cursor. While this may look great for visual design, from a web design perspective it is actually just a little bit distracting.
That said, if you want to make an impact, inverting colors around a mouse cursor is one of the best ways to do it.
