Major Brands and Companies Using WordPress

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.

Let's Talk About Your Project Answer a Few Questions »

The Friends of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge are so thankful to Graticle Design for their amazing work! They re-vamped and updated our website in the time promised, and made it so user-friendly! It is so easy now to go in and edit, change and move things around compared to before. The user options are exponentially better than before, with easy add and use boxes, places to enter information while editing that will show up in multiple places throughout the website; and, my favorite part, easily editable and accessible buttons that can be added to every new webpage module. This makes linking people to important information, other pages on the website, other websites, and to our own uploaded content a breeze!

Shawn and his team made our site more mobile friendly (more as in, now it is mobile friendly!) and the video tutorials that were created to walk us through adding content to our new website are so clear and easy to follow, we had our new website filled with content and up and running in just a week, once the Graticle team finished creating it.

We would highly recommend Graticle for your website needs! Affordable and unbeatable quality and support.

I highly recommend choosing Graticle for any of your graphic design needs. I worked with Shawn on designing the album artwork for an upcoming CD my band is releasing. Shawn has been a pleasure to work with. Professional, timely, creative and produces a very high quality final product. Shawn is highly skilled in many computer design programs and knowledgeable about technical design aspects that helped make this project flow smoothly. Graticle has been a very positive and rewarding company to work with and I would use Shawn again for other projects as well as recommend him highly to my friends.
