25 Beautiful Examples of Captivating Website Headers

Looking for some inspiring website headers? Look no further! From “green” designs to techie grunge, this collection runs the gamut of over-the-top, over-sized website headers. Some of these designs incorporate navigational elements within the header, some place the header at the top of the page, and others use the header to take up most of the viewable screen.

When viewing the examples below, note the trend towards illustrations, too. Even when photographs are used, they are highly stylized with illustrative elements. No question about it — these are eye-catching.

Hence, they are all great pieces for gathering ideas for your own amazing website header designs because, after all, the header is what visitors see first. If your header is not visually appealing, visitors may begin the navigation of your site with a negative feeling. So, take a look at the roundup below and allow them to feed your creativity.
