It may only be inspired by National Geographic, but this project looks completely authentic. Exciting photography is what the brand is all about, and it’s woven perfectly into its landing page.

This hero image transitions from white to black, which seamlessly spills down into the rest of the page. The design is then broken up with beautiful, bright photography that stands out against the darkness. It’s a great concept for a landing page, and very inspiring.

Short, sweet, and simple, this landing page gets its point across quickly and stylishly. The photo header smoothly fades out to give way to image links and blog posts, before fading back in to the footer.

Travel Landing Page

A good homepage is crucial for success, and here’s a great example. Notice the focus on orange hues; they appear everywhere from UI to the photography. Strong usage of color can create a beautiful effect.

Traisl.

Example of Traisl.

Many travel sites tend to go for contrast between the photos and background, but this contrasts dark UI against snowy photography. It gives a greater focus to the text content.

Gorgeous Travel Sites

Travel websites are especially beautiful. They utilize jaw-dropping photography and videos to draw you in and get you excited to explore. Knowing how to incorporate these into a great user interface is key to creating an amazing travel design.

There’s something about seeing gorgeous natural imagery that draws people in. Use this to your advantage as you design a website that captures people with its beauty.
