40+ Stunning and Inspiring Website and Blog Footers

footers

Most websites and blogs follow same overall structure in their design. At the top there’s a header section with a logo and in some case a few ads and some kind af navigation. At the bottom there’s some kind of footer. Between the header and footer there are one or more column with content. Traditionally most space and focus have been put on the header and the content sections while the footer have been one or two lines with maybe some contact information and a few important links. Many websites still follow this pattern but there’s certainly a trend right now turning this completely around. Modern websites and in particular blogs offer footers that are significant design elements, that become essential for the usability and overall look and feel. Of cause footer contents varies quite a lot from design to design (some having article lists, contact forms, votes, bio, navigation, image feed etc.) but it’s interesting to see how designers prioritize their footer today. Looking at footers created by other designers for great websites and blogs is inspiring and it may help us get ideas on what fits will in our own footer sections. You may also find inspiration in blog themes for WordPress. This article showcase more than 40 great looking footers and should be enough to keep you inspired. But I hope you will leave comment if you know about  a great footer we should all know about.

I agree with Aaron. That’s why you’ll never see a blog post that’s only composed of say 4 best footers… there are a lot of great looking blogs AND footers that you gotta at least choose 40 :D

I really love the ones that include doodles or cartoon characters!

Thanks for posting this. I’m usualy stuck with what to put in my footer, something origional and less over used. This has sure given me the inspiration I need to make that ‘something new’.
