Best Practices of sustainable UX/UI designs

Websites can have a heavy digital footprint and we need to change it now.

Have a look through brands that choose another way. Each of the listed websites has a minimal digital footprint (measured by CO2 value), a very good user experience and a stand-out UI design. More info on the selection

The selection of UX/UI designs

The selection of the listed sites is based on three pillars: digital footprint, UX and UI. I measure the digital footprint with digitalbeacon.co. The evaluation of the UX and UI is done as an internal design review.

Planned extensions to the library

You can look forward to many extensions of the library. Various categories are planned, as well as references to the designers, interviews, backgrounds, saving options and much more.

Your suggestions for the library

You have suggestions for lightweight websites with top UX/UI? Maybe even a site of your business or one you designed? Send me a message with the link of the site.

Quarterly new designs

New designs will be added every few weeks. So feel free to take a look at the library every now and then. Connect with me on Instagram, LinkedIn or via my newsletter to get updates.

Analyze your own website

Find out how heavy your website is. I recommend to use Digital Beacon, which allows you to see how much CO2 per page visit is emitted from your website and how big your website is.

What means “CO2 per visit”?

The value “CO2 per visit” tells you how much estimated CO2 is emitted with a single website visit. If you multiply this by the number of visitors per month, you get a magnitude of the consumption.

Find your path. Be creative. Enjoy the journey.
