3- HTML5 Boilerplate

The popular website HTML5 Boilerplate uses ribbons to draw our attention to the most important action items on the page. I love that the ribbons do their job without having to say “Download here.” The combination of ribbons and labels tells us this is where to download the resources.

4- Chipmunk

Chipmunk is a great example of how well a ribbon can work with organic elements. The ribbon around the primary navigation fits in perfectly with the rich illustrations below. It also keeps the navigation from getting lost among the powerful artwork.

9- Blog en Bois

On Blog en Bois, the arrow effect of the ribbon is especially powerful, largely due to the contrasting dark behind the yellow. I find myself drawn back to the logo over and over again. It’s certainly a powerful way to engrain the brand in the user’s mind.

The ribbon nicely frames the name Letter Learner here. Also, the page is laid out as a single column; the ribboned title encourages the user to start their journey at the top and flow down from there.

On the rather unusual Rockaholic!, the ribbon directs the user’s attention down, playing nicely into the vertical scroll of the website and helping the user dig into the content.

28- Dhiraj Singh Karki

I always love designs that depart from convention. The portfolio of UI designer Dhiraj Singh Karki is just such a website. Here, the ribbon is used rather cleverly and does not pack nearly the same visual punch as on other websites. It blends right into the page and yet has enough style to keep the design from looking too simple.
