As a creative, you need
a digital space to showcase your work to potential employers or clients, and
for that matter to the world at large.
That digital space, your
website, works in both directions. It allows you to promote your work, and it
enables your audience to get in touch with you.
Creating that digital space can require a lot of work. But it doesn’t have to. Pick one of Be Theme’s 600-plus pre-built websites and you can have a website up and running in short order; especially if you choose one of the 15 pre-built sites described below to do the heavy lifting.
And don’t worry yourself to death about which of the 15 to select. You’ll probably find one or more to your liking from the get-go, plus every one of them is customizable.
That said, let’s get started.
1. BeAgency 4
The BeAgency 4 pre-built site is a great choice if you prefer to work alone. It will also be a great choice if you intend to establish a creative agency. This pre-built sets just the right tone for presenting your work in a clean, orderly, and highly professional manner.
You can even enter your work in the built-in, ready-to-go portfolio page.
It may seem a bit curious that more than a few app websites are only given a cursory inspection by app owners. It is given before being largely ignored because visitors have gone elsewhere.
The reason for a given website may be completely valid in that it addresses a well-established need. It has a poor showing when it comes to converting visitors to users of the app in question.
The fault doesnâ€™t lie with the app itself, especially if itâ€™s one that a visitor will see as having value. It lies rather with the design of the website, a design which somehow fails to guide a visitor to the point where he or she decides to buy.
The design has to accomplish three things; attract a visitor, engage that visitor, and lead that visitor to the desired goal â€“ selecting the product.
Creating a design that will accomplish these three things doesnâ€™t need to be difficult; and it wonâ€™t be if you take advantage of these 5 simple tips.
5 Simple Tips for Creating High Quality App Websites
Tip # 1: Choose a spellbinding color palette
Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone will necessarily agree with what you consider to be a spellbinding color palette. You donâ€™t have to please everyone of course, and you likely have a very good idea of what a color palette should consist of to attract attention.
Still, if you stick to the following 3 simple rules you should be dead right every time.
â€¢ The palette should highlight colors that immediately attract attention
â€¢ The colors you rely on most heavily should be on brand
â€¢ The palette you choose should visually support the websiteâ€™s message
This Headspace example illustrates how pastel color touches can not only be as effective as bold, brash colors, but even more so. Pastel colors tend to give your site a lighthearted look; one that helps support the message.
On the other hand this Be Theme pre-built website effectively uses an eye-catching palette of bold colors to attract and engage visitors.

Csstyleis a modern approach for crafting beautifully maintainable stylesheets. The csstyle method is implemented using a set of SASS mixins that make your CSS readable and semantic, generate your selectors for you, and automatically handle things like specificity and nesting. csstyle makes your project’s styling refreshingly consistent.
To get started just import the csstyle mixins, add an id=”csstyle” to your body tag (used for automatic specificity handling), and you’re set. You’ll be pleasantly suprised how much better these simple building blocks make writing CSS. Happy styling!
