Major Brands and Companies Using WordPress

July 22, 2014    Reading Time: < 1 Minute

Don’t all WordPress websites look the same? Nope.

Comparing the design of a “WordPress Website” to a “Non-WordPress Website”, is a little like judging the performance of a computer by just looking at it.

WordPress is the “engine” your website uses to run. It doesn’t affect anything that you actually see on the website.

Visually, the design is what separates one website from the next. The website could be built on WordPress or any other content management system, and no one would be any the wiser.

What WordPress does do well is content management and extensibility. But again, this does not effect the design of the website.

Still not convinced?

Below are 8 well designed websites from brands or companies that you’ll recognize, and each are built on WordPress.

Fortune Magazine WordPress Website

This major leader in business journalism chose WordPress for their content driven website.

Dallas Mavericks WordPress Website

The Dallas Mavericks not only pushed the limits in the design of their website, but they also chose to build it on WordPress. And of course, it’s mobile friendly. Well done Mavs.

Boise State University WordPress Website

The Broncos did well with not only designing a great looking academic website, but they also developed it on WordPress. Being a Fresno State Bulldog, it’s hard to give credit to Boise State, but here it’s well deserved.

AIGA Portland Oregon WordPress Website

You wouldn’t expect anything less than creative with AIGA, and Portland’s AIGA chapter did just that. (built on WordPress)

Lollapalooza WordPress Website

Creativity is an understatement with Lollapalooza’s website. It just goes to show that WordPress has nothing to do with the actual design of a website.

TechCrunch WordPress Website

Managing content is a breeze with WordPress, so is it really a surprise that TechCrunch chose WordPress?

Sony Music WordPress Website

One of the major players in the music industry trusts WordPress to run their website.

TIME Magazine WordPress Website

Another great example of showcasing the possibilities with WordPress. TIME is the 153rd most visited website in the United States so I think it’s safe to say WordPress can handle traffic.

Great service and response time. We set up an appointment for some company branding and I was asked some very specific questions and we went over some images, they created a perfect design and a quick turnaround. Graticle is definitely who we will use for all of our design and I will recommend them to anyone needing their service.
