Best Website About Us Page Ever

Best Website About Us Page Ever

We do a lot of web design and, as a result, picking our favorite for best website awards changes. Often. Sometimes daily.

But while I was waking up with a cup of coffee and thinking about how much my back hurt from shoveling the mountain of snow that fell yesterday, I discovered the website of Lateral, a pan-European software development company with offices in London and Romania.

Lateral’s About Us page is so captivating it makes me go back again and again, just because I think it’s so cool. Oh, and of course it makes me want to hire them – which is the whole point of an About Us page, no?

There’s a screen capture here (using Awesome Screenshot, my newest favorite tool) but, to see what I’m talking about, you’ve got to go to their home page. Move your cursor around and you’ll see what happens.

And don’t forget to click the keyboard keys – you’ll not be disappointed.

What’s your favorite About Us page? This week, anyway?

  • Great find.

  • Heather O

    That is one of the best finds. I am dying of laughter over here. I didn’t do the key commands yet, but all the reason for a 2nd visit to that page. 🙂

  • Super fun! Love it!

    Oh Heather, I knew you’d love it. I keep going back, just to mess with it.

    I agree, Rita!!!

  • Hi Shelly

    What a brilliant little find you made there. Hats off!
    I just wanted to thank you for helping me procrastinate yet again today to enjoy this little head turning game lol.

    I think the “a” key was my favorite :).
    I just want to hire them to do something – anything!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great week.


  • that was so freaking cool! A was def my favorite key too.

    That is just too fabulous, Shelly. Like The Brady Bunch opening credits … only MORE HIP (and far more creative)! “A” my fave key as well. Wish more folks in the design world had a sense of humor and playfulness like this. Myself included. 😉

  • See that was a lot of fun, and that’s what the web needs more of. I have an “about me” page of sorts on my own site and while it’s nowhere near as technically involved as Lateral’s, it was a lot of fun to put together and grab geeky pieces of past and throw together. Everything from Poloroids to ASCII art to dot matrix printer paper.

    Thanks for sharing this – I enjoyed it!

  • That is AWESOME!
