With so many different website builders out there to choose from, it can be tough to know which is right for you. Sometimes, it helps to look at examples of existing sites built with them to see if the design matches what you’re looking for. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 20 examples of sites running on Startup Framework by Designmodo.
The examples below should help give you an idea of what Designmodo’s Startup Bootstrap builder is capable of and hopefully, provide some design inspiration too!
But first, let’s take a closer look at exactly what the Startup Framework is.
Startup is a browser-based theme builder by Designmodo, built on the Bootstrap front-end framework. It’s one of the most powerful website-building tools on the market and makes it easy for new startups to make their websites and get them ready to launch quickly.
You can use the Startup Framework to build a beautiful, professionally-designed website with no coding whatsoever. You can build every page from scratch entirely on the frontend using an intuitive drag-and-drop interface and 300+ pre-designed blocks/elements.
There’s a huge variety of templates to choose from and near-endless customization options, so you can fine-tune your website design to your exact specifications.
The drag-and-drop tool is very beginner-friendly, exporting is quick and easy, and you can make global style changes in one click. The components use a consistent style and Designmodo’s popular Flat UI
Alright, let’s jump into the list. Here are 20 examples of sites built with Startup Framework by Designmodo.
Let’s kick things off by taking a look at the virtual assistant site Zirtual. They’ve used the startup framework to put together a neat, professional-looking website with a good balance between multimedia and text. The homepage is organized into clear sections.
There is a lot of empty space on the page, and minimal clutter, so the elements that are there stand out. The green CTA buttons are in stark contrast to the rest of the colors on the page, which makes them impossible to miss and improves CTRs.
Next up, Pixelsum. This is the website of a web design agency, so you just know it’s going to be good. It was built using two Designmodo products: Startup and Slides. Here’s what we like most about it.
First off, there’s plenty of white space, which aids with readability and helps to direct the website visitors’ attention where you want it. Images and text load by fading in as you scroll down the page. Aside from looking cool and adding an element of interactivity to the page, this also aids with page load speeds.
Because elements below the fold are only loaded when the user scrolls down, it helps to keep the initial page size to a minimum so that the page can load up more quickly, thus boosting SEO and improving the user experience.
The illustrations are nicely designed and help to convey the brand personality, and the whole site looks great on both desktop and mobile.
Here’s another great example of a site running on Startup Framework from school survey platform Edurio. As with Pixelsum, the different elements on the page fade in as you scroll down, revealing more information about the platform bit by bit. The full-width blocks, clean borders, and green and white color scheme make it look neat and professional.
Timeneye is a time tracking software provider that makes it easy to monitor your team’s productivity. Their website is built with Designmodo’s Startup Framework and does a great job of showcasing their product.
The extra-large image of their software sits in the foreground of the homepage and dominates the screen, quickly capturing the user’s attention and putting the product in the spotlight.
Rezi is an AI-powered ATS resume builder that used the Startup Framework to get its website off the ground. They’ve attributed part of their success to the builder, calling it ‘an incredible value add for our company’.
The homepage is beautifully laid out, with an autoplay video at the top that showcases the product in action, elegant pricing tables, testimonials, and a wonderful selection of templates organized into a grid layout below the fold.
The website is fully responsive, optimized for conversions, and looks great across all devices. And the best part is, thanks to the Startup Framework, the creators were able to build it without any coding experience.
Printing company 450 GSM has put the Startup Framework to great use here. The designer has left used plenty of white space, a minimalist color screen, and a nice combination of polygonal graphics to create a pleasing aesthetic that fits their brand perfectly.
Yisual is a dutch website offering a powerful editing tool that can be used to make all kinds of promotional materials. The full-width image slider at the top of the homepage automatically cycles between different promotional messages every few seconds to introduce all the benefits of Yisual to visitors one by one.
The flat design looks great, the structure is clear and highly readable, and navigation is seamless. The way the animated logo moves when you hover your mouse over it is also a nice touch.
Here’s another Dutch company that’s put together a lovely website using the Startup Framework. They offer an innovative invoicing tool, and they’ve done a great job of selling it on their landing page.
The top of the homepage is dominated by a title showing their value proposition statement and a CTA/form field designed to grab the visitor’s email address and get them into their mailing list.
As you scroll down, the first thing you’ll see is a huge, annotated image of a Digitale Factuur invoice, which highlights all the features the customer wants to see. Next, another huge annotated image of the Smartphone app, with all the most important features labeled.
These kinds of visual images make it easy for the visitor to find out more about the company and product without having to read through walls of text. Instead, they can just look at the beautifully-laid-out images to find out all they need to know.
The design of this website by Universal Media is super interesting. They’ve used an innovative page layout that separates the page into several different sections. Instead of scrolling down smoothly, visitors move through the page block by block. Attempting to scroll will automatically move the user down one big chunk to the next section.
The parallax scrolling background images and stunning full-width designs make this one of the most creative-looking pages on this list.
USP: very animated site. As you scroll down the page, animations unfold before your eyes. E.g. counter
GiftOff’s Startup-powered website is fun, interactive, and creative. It uses subtle gradients and nifty animated elements like an animated customer counter to make it feel more dynamic and interactive. There’s plenty of empty space so it doesn’t feel cluttered, and the overall structure is great. It’s fully responsive and looks just as good on mobile and tablet devices as it does on desktops.
Vyte is a superb example of a landing page built with the Startup Framework. They use their site to showcase and sell their smart, all-in-one scheduling app.
The website is simple and clean, with a white background and a small amount of text to highlight the main features alongside simple illustrations. It conveys its message concisely and gets straight to the point.
Startup Framework allowed the design team at FortyAU to build this brilliant website to market their brand. The dynamic header text at the top of the page cycles through different words to tell customers all the things the FortyAU developer team is able to build.
They use a predominantly black and white color palette, with splashes of their brand’s shade of yellow on the most important elements, like CTA buttons and key features, to draw the website user’s eye and direct their attention where they want it.
Foodliner is a food important and supplier operating in Belarus. Their website is built with Startup Framework and features a sliding carousel of large images of mouth-watering food products. I’m getting hungry just looking at it!
The website designer has created a great website with a nice mix of photos and simple canvases. It doesn’t feel cluttered or messy, and the generous use of white space makes it easy to read.
Here’s another great website from cultural anthropologist and web designer Giacomo Golinelli. His personal website looks great, with neat color combinations and a clean straight-line layout.
As you hover your mouse over the different website strips, the background disappears and the color of the text changes from white to black. This makes it feel very responsive and interactive and also aids with readability.
This website from influencer marketing platform Octoly does exactly what it’s supposed to do: convince visitors to take action. The homepage is jam-packed with cool, creative features that look great.
At the top, the user can choose between two buttons to click: “I’m an influencer” or “I’m a brand”. This instantly segments them into two different types of customers and takes them straight to the part of the homepage with the information they need.
The grid just below the fold uses animated counters to draw the visitor’s attention to some important numbers, like the number of brand/influencer collaborations Octoly has helped with, to serve as social proof. It’s got everything a potential customer would want to see: features and benefits, case studies, testimonials, and more.
Here’s another great example of a Designmodo Startup Framework site from Hubstaff. It uses a two-column structure for most of the homepage; one side for text, one for images/video elements.
At the top of the page, a video player autoplays to present the user with shots of their time tracking software in action. Next to that, a play button invites the user to click to learn more. Once they click it, the video player appears on a full-screen popup to play the full video for them.
The color palette neat and professional, with generous use of shades of light blue and white, and there are a bunch of animated page elements that make it feel very dynamic.
The SHN website uses a plain and simple layout that puts the key features in the spotlight. The design is clear, clean, and eye-catching and the focus is on the content.
Apartable is a real estate agency whose site is built with the Startup Framework. As you’d expect, the page cuts straight to the chase and is dominated by a search bar inviting the customers to put in a city or postcode to find apartments in that area. There’s little else on the page aside from 3 columns highlighting the main benefits of Apartable just below the fold.
Polish window manufacturers Jezierski beautifully showcase their windows on this stunning website. The image carousel at the top of the page shows real-life examples of their windows, overlaid with text highlighting the main benefits.
