73 Examples of Visual Web Design

From Social Shopping Sites to Nuptial Planning Sites

— May 28, 2014 — Marketing
In a digital age where a visual web design is crucial to any website's longevity and success, it is important that brand sites focus on giving consumers a platform that focuses on pumping up its content through graphical design. This gives consumers a more interactive-based and visually stimulating experience when they visit a product, brand or company's webpage.

There are multiple ways companies can use a visual web design to entice buyers and consumers to spend time cycling through the brand's multiple content page. Pinterest is at the forefront of this revolution, offering its audience hours upon hours of unique and visually striking product images that pull a viewer in and keep them clicking away. Some ways we see this happening on other sites is through an swipe-based image platform like a smartphone app or using images to convey content rather than tedious boxes of texts.
