You know UX design is important. You know a website needs to be engaging and maximized for customer satisfaction to generate sales and leads.

But what exactly makes a great UX design? How can yours stand out among the best of the best? Our UX designers weighed in on their favorites to give you the 10 best user experience websites!

Focusing costumer attention

Notion

Notion’s homepage demonstrates the power of its tool upon arrival, immediately focusing the customer’s attention on how the tool solves their problems. You’ll feel like you need it within the first few seconds of hitting their site! In fact, customers and our designers have found themselves using Notion both to organize work life and home life.

Where productivity tools often overcomplicate the user experience, Notion has simplified it, making the web application fun to use and welcoming experimentation, allowing the customer to imagine their life and needs at work and at home through the lens of this powerful tool. Detailed visuals, along with a snapshot of functionalities, make it easy for customers to see what Notion’s software can do to serve them.

The “Sign Up” call to action is always available throughout the user experience, making it effortless for visitors to become users. This UX design makes it fun for users to explore Notion’s home page.
