25 Faces in Websites

Article by Awwwards Team in Web Design - November 30

The human face is a commonly used element in web design. As humans, the face is an appealing form to us. Eyes and mouths express certain moods and could make a website more inviting. Many websites choose to have a big face as the main element in their homepages. An attractive face can be used as a call to action or draw attention to certain areas of a website. Many designers choose to put their own faces in their websites. It's a nice way to present themselves: "Hey, this is me, the guy who's making all this stuff" Showing your face proves you are open, you have nothing to hide and you are proud of the work you are showing. In this post we showcase 25 examples of websites with big faces.
