The five best-designed websites

2 Mins

Wendy Tan-White, founder of Moonfruit, tells us what she thinks are the best-designed websites around.

1. Ted.com

Ted.com has an incredible calibre of speakers and talks on variety of interesting topics. It’s impossible to get tickets for most of the talks, but all of the talks are archived here. The website is very accessible, and its search function and video players work well. Ted.com also uses social media well, and it’s easy to share a talk with your friends. Visit the site – and also check out Real Business’s pick of must-watch Ted talks!

2. Etsy.com

Etsy.com's homepage

This is the best market place for selling high quality, artisan products. Etsy’s design, and the user experience when you visit the site fits with the products on display. It’s a well-crafted, stylish, and quality website. Have a look.

3. Artfinder.com

Artfinder.com's homepage

This is a new site, created by one of the founders of Last.fm. Artfinder is a great place to discover art from around the world. From old masters to new graduate work, there’s something for everyone, for novices to experts. The site is also easy to search. Browse Artfinder here.

4. TheNextWomen.com

TheNextWomen.com's homepage

TheNextWomen.com is great for up to date news on women entrepreneurs across the globe. It’s a great resource for inspiration if you’re running your own business, and has a great design too. Check it out.

5. YumiYoga.co.uk

YumiYoga.co.uk's homepage

This is a beautiful site, with lovely graphics and a light feel, that reflects the business that it’s promoting – keep this in mind when designing your website! View it here.
