Melanie Daveid is a UX designer and art director based in Berlin. As is expected from a portfolio website, it shows off her skills and artistic vision.

Daveid’s website shows the benefits of a simple but informative structure. While the design is visually appealing, there is nothing to distract the viewer from what is important.

Wild Journey is a meditation app for iPad and iPhone devices. This one-page website takes a minimalist marketing approach, letting you know more about the app from a single glance.

As the app is developed for relaxation, Wild Journey brings the feeling of relaxation into the design, which provides a calming and stress-free experience.
The Art of Texture is a website created to promote a documentary of the same name about a collage artist based in Amsterdam.
Including quotes from the artist, examples of his featured work, and shots from the documentary itself, the page does a great job of promoting interest in the project. All done without using lengthy descriptions.
With a carefully constructed narrative, The Art of Texture introduces us to its primary concept, advertises merchandise and finishes with a slideshow of the end of the project.
40075 describes itself as an ‘immersive journey’, aimed at helping visitors to discover music from all over the world.

10. Android KitKat
In a collaboration with Android, Kit Kat released a promotional page for their line of candy products in the style of websites that talk about new tech.
Throughout the page, the candy bar is taken apart and its features are documented as a joke.

What is a one-page website and why should you consider making one?
Now that we’ve gone over some examples of one-page sites, it’s time to understand them better.
A one-page website consists of only a single page, having the visitor scrolling their site to keep exploring the content.
To avoid clutter, one-page sites usually employ a minimalist design.
There are many benefits to having a one-page website:
- A simple design is much more memorable to your visitors, making sure you stand out.
- By having only one page for your website, users don’t need to jump between pages to find important information.
- Since you only need to worry about a single design, changes are much easier to make, as you will not need to apply them to many pages.
- One-page sites enjoy a low bounce rate, as users don’t have to explore a confusing site.
