Login form designs for inspiration


Let’s face it – first impressions are very important. As much as it is true for human beings, it is equally true for websites. This is why creating an interesting login page is of absolute importance. An interesting login page will draw viewers to explore the website in detail. Similarly the more innovative login page, the more viewers will be drawn to it.

Designs should be user friendly so that the visitors are capable of figuring it out with ease and will not have to go through a lot of hassle in order to become a member. At the same time, it should display all the features that are necessary. And the login page should reflect the image of a business or blog.

The first thing designers should do when creating a login form is figure out what information is needed from the people who are about to become a member. Do you want any special menu to appear on your login form? Or do you want it to be a basic form? Work all these details out before sitting down and creating the form. This will save a lot of work and time.

Now it’s time to put all the details down. Developers will come across many designs which are minimal and consist of the basics. On the other hand, there are also login pages with elaborate designs and creativity that are very appealing. In order to figure out which is best suited for what the business or blog is hoping to accomplish, look at login forms which are popular among the target audience. Here are some login pages for inspiration:

10 Clean WordPress Themes For a Simple Blog Website

10 Clean WordPress Themes For a Simple Blog Website


Sometimes, being a wordsmith and being technologically savvy go hand in hand. This means that you are more than credible to start your own blog. Where do you start? Luckily, there are plenty of simple, clean templates to choose from via WordPress. Here are just ten themes that you can choose from:

 

1. Aquarius  

This particular template isn’t used often, but it is liked by those who have. It has two five star reviews. In terms of appearance, Aquarius is described as “minimalistic.” But that’s okay; less is more. If you’re just starting out, this is a perfect template.

 

2. Kubrick 2014 

 This is another one that doesn’t have a lot of flair to it, but, its simplicity makes it easy to navigate. There is some room for pictures, but not to the point where they’d be overwhelming.

 

3. Accessible Zen 

 This theme’s title says it all: It’s accessible. It’s based on the theme that built the popular blog, Zen Habits.

 

4. Clean Black 

 This theme is simple, yet elegant. Its dark tone gives you that mysterious, yet classy look.

 

5. Simple Life

This theme is ideal for blogging. If you’re just starting out, you can file all your articles by category, which are made easily accessible via a bar on the right of the theme. In addition, it is translation ready.

 

6. WP Simple 

 This theme’s main feature, according to its creator, is its ability to show up fully on smartphones. It has, however, received mixed reviews.

 

7. Pure & Simple 

 This template offers a bit more leeway for the blogger seeking simplicity. You can, however, still keep it as basic as you want. There’s room for a massive picture at the opening, but you can also change it to different layouts.

 

8. Prana 

This theme does away with graphics that need extra time for loading. The result is a lean theme that doesn’t spare any aesthetic qualities. Another feature is improved SEO, which makes it easier for the startup blogger to get his or her name out there.

 

9. Nature Light 

If you’re just starting out and need a simple theme, this one is ideal. It’s not flashy, but it gets the job done for someone wanting to make a word-driven blog.

 

10. Clean Simple White  

This theme does away with just about all pictures—making it easy for you to do what bloggers were born to do: write.
