website headers

Headers are the first to be seen by visitors when they enter a website. It is the place where your readers can either be excited or become bored. When your readers are pleased with your header, there is a greater chance for them to go on and read the contents of your website. If they get bored simply by looking at your header, they will look around and leave your website immediately. However, how should an ideal header looks like? There is no clear-cut standard of measurement that can serve as your guide because it is a matter of perception that can only be gauged by actual observation. If you feel that your header is attractive, then it would likely be attractive to others as well.

Now that there are a lot of websites all competing for every keyword you can mention, the rivalry to attract quality traffic is fought in every square inch of your web page, with the first skirmishes right on your header. If you feel that your header is good but there is still something that needs to be done about it, then it is better to look at the header of other websites. There are many websites with good looking and effective headers in any niche so it is not difficult for you find a model. One way you can overcome the challenge is to look for WordPress themes with flexible and great looking header design. For most types of websites you will often find the needed features in multi-purpose themes or if you plan to build a creative site, such as an online portfolio you may want to look for themes with portfolio style. Setting up navigation right is also a key part of the header design. Some ready to use navigation solutions will often come in handy.

In your search, you will find that there are website headers which are not only highly creative but also ones that clearly display the navigation buttons. These designs are ones which are often successful in their attempt to hold their readers. Many of these websites use headers which are inspired by plants. Plants have always been one of the best raw materials that web designers use because of their power to cool down the senses thereby making people feel relaxed and comfortable. To give you an idea on plants can be used to design cool and attractive headers, we are sharing with you this article. Here, you will find some of the designs use plant sparingly while others are somewhat dominant all throughout the header. Either way, they are all creative and truly inspirational. We hope that this article can help you further your career as a web or graphic designer or as an Internet marketer.  Happy viewing!

Hey Sonny,

I like these headers, they are so cool! I was looking for some inspiration for a new project of mine and landed here. I got inspired instantly.

My project involves “green hosting” with electricity generated by windmills (I’m from Holland haha…)

I think you do not realize how much you have helped me with this post. Thanks! Maybe I can send you mine when I’m finished with it?

I like your ideas about how important the header area is for a websites design and how it make people stay on your site. I also agree that there is not an ideal header guide line, it all depends on the viewer of the site. The header area is something that I am always trying to improve on and push within my designs. With the examples in this article I have a resource, a standard and a starting point to try and improve on. I really liked the Slim Kiwi and A Better Play designs, I love the feel of the Slim Kiwi design with the colours and the texture of the grass and dirt from the A Better Play design.

Makes us wanna go out and get ourselves a garden!!! Jokes aside, these sites each seem to have a therapeutic calmness about them…maybe it’s the abundnt use of green as a color.


Sean October 24, 2011 at 7:47 pm

Interestingly that almost all of these website have a lot of green. It’s great ’cause the green color is so gorgeous.
