Websites We Like is a weekly blog post that is contributed to by all the employees here at Peak Positions showcasing the best websites we stumble across.

In this weeks contribution from the Peak staff we have websites from Abbel Associates, Christina Mrozik, Balboa Capital, Kenley Event Design, Thompson Remodeling, Paul Carlson, Scripps Health, Stadler Law Group, Threshold Recording Studio and Transics.
Great use of flat grey / whites with the addition of a feature image to really make it pop. A comfortable, modern design with a classic twist.
This design is clean, appealing, and clear with the call to action buttons that are used. They stand out enough so the user knows what to do when they land on the site.
Christina Mrozik’s page has a fixed header but isn’t the one page scrolling site… it helps as your get into the thick of all of her images to have an easy reminder of how to get back home.
Kenley Event Design
Kenley Event Design and Paul Carlson are one page scrolling sites with specifically the tablet and mobile phone in mind (people don’t like to click to other pages if they don’t have to).
Thompson Remodeling wanted huge images to take your breath away when you first clicked on their site.
This website is all about “helping” the user by asking the questions in the link names.
When you click on a condition such as hypertension the news articles changes to be relevant to the condition. For example, an article on sodium intake was on the hypertension page.
Stadler Law Group
The practice areas for this law firm are in clear, large call to action buttons. When you click on the divorce tab there are new call to action buttons including the steps in the process and parenting tips for going through a divorce. There is also an information center. This law firm does not have a contact form or email information. The only option is to call the firm.
Threshold Recording Studio
This design is dark, but the white text is easily readable. The typography used is sort of “blocky,” which stands out nice on the black/gray background. The dark, introverted feel suits the type of business well.
A website that really isn’t constrained by proportions. It gives a sense of a large corporate entity. The simple black and white design with huge images is complimented excellently with one flat orange color for conversion points all over the website.
