It’s time again for our monthly Divi Showcase where we take a look at 10 amazing Divi websites made by our community members. Each month we showcase the best Divi websites that were submitted from our community and today I want to share with you the top ten websites for the month of September. Throughout the post, I’ll point out some of my favorite design features that draw me to each of the websites.
I hope you like them!
Divi Design Showcase: New Submissions from September 2018
1. Pixels and Pencils
This website was submitted by Tyler Diaz. A nice full-screen header showcases what this site is about using graphics and color along with interesting designs. The next section shows client logos with a button to learn more. A featured work section displays projects as cards with images, text, button, and shadow effects. I love the last section, which shows another set of graphics with a simple call to action and social buttons placed within an angled section. The work page displays larger versions of the projects cards, with each one taking the visitor to a simple and elegant project detail page. I also love the simplified use of color and graphics.
2. Andrea Masotti
This website was submitted by Andrea Masotti. This site makes interesting use of Divi’s modules. Three rows show three columns that include text on the far right and left and a graphic in the center. The text and the graphics use black outlines with white for color that blends with the background. Each row is separated by a black line. Hovering over just the row turns all of its elements black. Hovering over a specific element within the row changes its color to red (for text) or red and blue (for the graphics). The red and blue graphics are used as header elements for the portfolio pages. This website is an excellent example of how something simple can make a big statement.
3. Adriano Alfaro
This website was submitted by Adriano Alfaro. It displays a full-screen header with a title and description followed by a short about section with social follow so you can know instantly what the site is about and engage with the designer. Blurbs with large icons, descriptions, and links show the services. The next several sections are my favorite. They display an image on one side and text on the other in full-width and include links to the portfolio. They alternate sides as you scroll. A video background plays behind an award with quote and CTA. I love the portfolio page, which displays wall-to-wall images of clickable projects. The individual project pages are where this site really shines. They are a beautiful example of modern layout design. Be sure to look at the Fiat page.
4. Emily Merchant
This website was submitted by Emily Merchant. This one creates an interesting header using a CTA. The CTA is created with an image, border, type of work provided, title, and buttons. Three images sit under this. They include a title in an overlay. Hovering changes their color and shows a border, creating an elegant project page CTA. An about section is created with a quote and text. Another portfolio CTA draws graphics as you scroll to it. The portfolio page creates a multi-column layout with each image having its own overlay colors and continuing the hover effects.
This website was submitted by Vincent Valentino. This one makes great use of bold colors and parallax effects. The full-screen header starts the site with a nice background that showcases the text and buttons. A section that shows what they do displays a topographical map with jagged edges to separate it from a section of blurbs, which display blocks with shadow effects. I love the sections with case studies. An image of the complete design is shown in the background while overlapping text and an image scroll over in parallax. Recent projects are displayed within a multi-column layout. This site makes excellent use of a one-page design.
6. Weather Station
This website was submitted by Pierre Lannoy. This is the website of an app. It keeps the design simple and makes great use of color. I especially like the blue backgrounds with a subtle gradient that’s used throughout the design. A wavy section separation sets the header apart while benefits are shown with images and text modules. The site also makes good use of number counters, which actually display useful stats of downloads and public installs. Just under this is a section that shows the ratings of the app and includes graphics of the star-rating. Testimonials are clean and include shadow effects. I also like the blog page, which displays images as cards in two columns with a box shadow, a title, and a button. Hovering shows a blue overlay with an excerpt from the post. The latest post is shown full-size in a single column. The individual posts also use box shadow effects and include post navigation and comments modules.
This website was submitted by Daragh Wallace. This site focuses on a blog layout. It displays an extra-large header to show the logo front and center. Under this is two navigation menus: the main topics are placed in the primary menu, and sub-topics are placed within a secondary menu with a slightly smaller font in green. A featured post shows an image to the left side, and the title, categories, excerpt, and read more button to the right side in a smaller box. Together they take the full-width of the content area. Following this is a blog section with 9 posts in three columns. The posts display the featured image, title, categories, short excerpt, and a button. The writer in me loves the full-width section showing the definition of the website’s title. The blog posts also keep a clean design with the featured image, text, a CTA, an image slider, a video (for some of the posts), and a blog section with three posts. This site is a great example of a clean blog design.
This website was submitted by Jeroen Rotty. It uses some of my favorite colors (I’m from Tennessee, and I’m partial to orange). The header uses parallax with a CTA. A styled section separator helps create the white-space for the next section, which provides ‘about’ information with a link and circled photo. Services are shown with large two-color icons that utilize the orange highlights and hover effects. Screenshots of recent work also use hover effects and include a shadow box effect. The portfolio page continues the recent work design. Clicking on one takes you to the website itself so you can see the work firsthand. The WordPress page displays the benefits in two columns and includes hand-drawn graphics throughout the page. I love the colors on this site.
9. Mothers at Risk
This website was submitted by Swag Design Factory. It uses a boxed design with a multi-column layout. The header displays the logo, menu, and social follow buttons vertically to one side with a video and tagline on the other side. An image and information section uses the same row layout but alternates the image and text. Several two-column sections show an image with an overlapping button and text with CTA. A full-width testimonial utilizes the site’s logo and colors to blend perfectly. The individual blog posts display a background pattern with the title and social follow buttons for the header followed by the post and sidebar, which are styled to match the site. I love the dark green and pink highlights used throughout the site.
10. Wems Wireless
This website was submitted by Philip Wantling. It utilizes branded colors (orange and green) with images of electronics (with the same branded colors) to describe this business website. This is seen in the full-screen header and throughout the site. Four images in two columns link to the various products. I love the CTA that provides an animation with title and button. It overlaps the previous section (of client logos) and is accompanied by a set of blurbs to describe the benefits. CTA’s for demos use standout ribbons in the corners of the images. The products are shown with multi-column layouts that lead to product links. The individual product pages also include some sweet Divi styling for the product descriptions and page background patterns. This site makes great use of layout design and color.
