An About us page is like a virtual office which a customer will definitely want to visit. To make it really effective, it may be helpful to gain inspiration from successful solutions of leading brands. This list isn’t complete and the websites aren’t positioned in a rating. All pages in this article equally deserve first prize for their high-quality design, well-thought navigation, and relevant content.
Here is our list:

5emegauche. The French designers, programmers, and marketers from 5emegauche have decided to stay laconic.

Creative and brave-hearted that’s how they wanted to present themselves to the world. And let’s admit, they have managed to do that.
SPIN. A very unusual About Us page of a very unusual design studio. The abstract visualization is the first thing that attracts attention.

Animated fonts, large typography, unusual illustrations, cards…it looks like they have used the best of minimalism. In addition to a brief and succinct introduction, the page also contains detailed information about their team and offices in different countries. It’s very hard to resist the inscription: “Like what you see? Looking for more? Call us, we’d love to talk. LET’S TALK”.

21. Appetite Creative Solutions
Appetite Creative Solutions. Let’s take a look at the About Us page of the award-winning Spanish digital experts. It wins customers over with the What We Do and What We Don’t blocks, bright showreels, its story, and case studies. The block with a team is absolutely gorgeous! It’s unique not only due to the drawn portraits of the team members but also thanks to the unusual use of animation and different styles of pictures (anime, pop-art, etc.). The end of the conversion path is a button at the bottom of the screen saying “Got a project? Let’s talk!.” Indeed, after taking a look at these creative solutions, any user may come up with an idea for a project.
APARTICULA. This is an extremely stylish and creative page of the representatives of the Paris digital industry. Everything is so balanced and elaborated here. A lot of free space, geometric shapes, high-quality images, quotes…every element seamlessly highlights the information about the company and its principles. At the bottom of the page, there is a Contact Us button which is used to promote conversion.
There are really numerous examples of excellent corporate pages, but creating this list we aimed to show how certain pages focus on sales whereas other focus on a brand image.
There are large brands for which it’s enough to add their story and infographics in the About Us section without trying to win users with buttons and lead forms. There are also local companies which prefer to use landing pages to the full.
The main thing is to understand the position of your company and whether it is necessary to add a conversion element in your case.
