Some people call it inspired but besides some very specific designs the look of a website is not something that you can’t copy. So, what do we recommend? There are many options out there websites that list the best architecture website designs and even your competition. By taking a good look at what is out there and what you personally like you will have a better idea what to ask for when you eventually approach a designer or a developer to bring your vision to life.
Make a mood board
A mood board is basically a collection of all the things that inspire you. Do this after you have looked around at what your competitors and market leaders have done. Collect a bunch of pictures drawings of what you think reflect best your vision of what the website should become.
