The website uses Parallax, and the airplane you see flies down the page with you, as you scroll down to find out more. Sometimes, it flies above other content and sometimes, it flies underneath the content.
The overall design is dark with shades of colors here and there. Very creative, loved the design.

A portfolio that’s full of imagination, with none of the make-believe.
The website is divided into rectangles of different bright colors. Each rectangle represents a section of the website.
You can simply click on a section to visit that page. Very simple layout and design. It is design using HTML with a .html extension.
Though it is not using a CMS to power the website, you still have a certain level of interactivity to it.
Each of the different pages uses a different color. Very simple, minimalist, but very creative.
An excellent example of a personal website design for your inspiration.

Mike is a digital designer from Atlanta, Georgia.
He helps agencies and creative studios build user interfaces and digital interactive experiences.
He has over eight years work experience and has worked with a wide variety of brands across the entertainment, automotive and financial industries.
It is a one-page website with a very simple layout and design. It uses Parallax so that each section flows over the other.
It uses darker sections followed by lighter ones. The font and its colors contrast the background so that they are easier to read. The headlines stand out the most, as it should be.
The website is minimalist and clutter free with lots of white spaces. The menu has only 3 options. So you don’t get confused & bogged down by the choices.
Another great example of a simple personal website.

This is again a one-page website, focusing on marketing, branding, and building a powerful mindset for creative entrepreneurs.
The layout is quite unique with a slider having an image covering half of the page with text protruding to the left of it. The text is centered & the image is right aligned. Scrolling down you can see a very clever use of rectangles & images.
I also loved the blog section. Predominantly the background is white darker fonts. The contrast helps reading easier on the eyes.
A unique concept for a personal website. Hopefully will help you to experiment with your own designs.

Again a one-page website. It seems that all personal websites are one-page websites.
The first screen has a mesmerizing image that would hold your attention. No menus, so you can just scroll down and find out more. The text is primarily dark on a white background, which makes reading very easy.
The website starts with a beautiful image but when you scroll down, it is primarily a resume with different skillsets mentioned towards the end of the page.
Then there is a simple form to get in touch.
Very simple & straightforward. Should serve as a good inspiration for those looking to keep things uncomplicated!

Marc is a digital engineer and a front-end developer.
His website has a very retro look. The pixellated images and fonts give you a feeling of looking at a 90’s computer.
I don’t think you have seen a simpler site than this. It just has a few lines describing Marc. And an option to email him. And some social media icons.
Some may find it too oversimplified. You decide for yourself what you think.

Gari says that he has always loved words, and always loved advertising.
The website is image intensive. It is more like a photography website. The homepage has almost no writeup. But a series of thumbnails from his past projects.
Click on an image and it takes you to that project detail page. Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, and they have used it very well to their advantage.
