This week I wanted to present some webdesign inspiration that brings something refreshing. Not only because of the design or ux value offered, but more because of the subject the websites put in front of us. They don’t have a gap between the environment and the story, which makes them special websites.
There are so many websites out there, that present and want to sell you something, that makes you lose count. But in that rumble there are some that grab your attention and show you something different. So, instead of telling you what makes them special, why not just let you see for yourself. Enjoy!

Far from the tree
In Far from the Tree, Andrew Solomon tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so. Solomon’s startling proposition is that diversity is what unites us all.The website is a well structured touchpoint that gives us a look inside the book of Andrew Solomon. The design, the simple and easy navigation, the video presentations of the book are a really nice touch.
Side Effects is a provocative thriller about Emily and Martin, a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new drug prescribed by Emily’s psychiatrist – intended to treat anxiety – has unexpected side effects.
It is an interesting website just because of how it is structured. You do not see websites that promote movies with this much attention to detail, I love it!
