• Inspirational sites roundup for August 6, 2014

Time to read: 2 minutes

This time around for our inspirational sites roundup we're going to be taking a look at sites that feature a "hero" image. So what's a hero image, you might ask? Over the past couple of years many sites have moved to designs that feature large headers, or site backgrounds that take up a majority, if not all, of the browser.

Leading with these large banners and backgrounds is quite eye-catching. Layering type and other images on top of these hero images, sometimes with translucent color overlays, is also a big part of the hero image design.

This week’s lineup will include a look at the following sites: Mod Notebooks, Functional Works, TideKit, Magisto, Jack McDade, Molly & Me Pecans, and AFGA .

If you’ve got some sites that inspire you, whether they’re hero image sites, or something else altogether, be sure to shoot me an email with a URL. I’m always looking for beautiful sites to feature here on the blog from time-to-time.
