Life in Motion Road and Travel Theme in Website Design
Images of roads, videos featuring highways and a keen sense of spiritual journeys and voyages – today we are going to take a look at diverse well-crafted website designs that bear imprint of a travel theme. Though it seems that such factors are inherent only to specific websites, those that deal with expeditions, logistics or some kind of adventure, in fact all these elements can easily take root in other designs that actually have nothing to do with such spheres.
For example, photos featuring deserted highways can be easily associated with openness, acceleration, speed and smoothness. This spectrum of emotions is perfect for supporting slogans and taglines of various ambitious companies that try to express their performance and possibilities via motion values. Other adherents of a road theme are car manufacturers that simply cannot imagine their promotional websites without it. Even a trendy approach of visual storytelling in almost every second case implies some kind of a visual path that is quite often presented with a help of an illustrated track.
In general, this is a broad theme that can either get straight to the point or simply remain passive, keeping the theme alive.
