Suyara: Designing a Website with Big Screens in Mind

great example of website design for desktop screen

While responsive website design—making sure your site renders perfectly on mobile and tablet devices—is all the rage, web designers still have to keep in mind those users who access a site on a desktop computer. And increasingly, those desktop computers have massive screens. I happen to use big screens (several of them, actually) and I really love it when a website design takes advantage of all those extra pixels. Case in point is this beautifully simple site for Suyara. The use of the space doesn’t amount to anything more than a super-sized background image. Designing for a big screen doesn’t have to be complicated; here, a really big and bold graphic fills the space. It also single-handedly gives the page a 100% distinct visual that is easy to remember and helps the site stand out in a beautiful way.
