10 Inspirational Website Designs Featuring “Desks from the top”
We’ve seen the desktop top-view design style around on a number of websites, mostly on blogs, craft shop websites or graphic designers’ sites.
Although they often use the same elements (coffee cups, pens, laptops, notepads and post-it notes), these designs generally differ in their placement of the desk items, and the colour and texture of the desks. We’ve collected a few examples of desk and office themed websites for inspiration.
The trend seems to have died down over the last couple of years. In quite a few of the designs we’ve sourced, we found that the websites have moved on from this design style. The style can however still be used effectively on relevant sites.
This design features desk elements in the header area, and a wooden desk texture throughout the background.
A dark office with a single overhead lamp, perhaps? We like the dramatic lighting effect used in this design, plus the added detail of placing Dann Whittaker’s name on the pencils.
In this design, the whole desk is featured along with the office chair and potted plants. Althouth the desk and the items on it make the header seem fairly busy, the design is clean and uncluttered overall.
A scattered design that looks very much like a section of a busy desk viewed from the top. This design could be used quite effectively for a single page CV or resume.
Homegrown talent! A South African version of the desktop design, complete with a five rand coin and ten rand note.
If you worked in a doctor’s office, you’re likely to have a stethoscope somewhere on or near your desk. Hopefully the tablets and injection needles are stored elsewhere!
A very simple notepad design with stars adding splashes of colour to the layout.
A subtle use of the desktop elements in the header and the footer, with the wooden desk texture in the background featuring more strongly. We’re not so sure about taping items to the desk though..?
