Functional and Appealing: 30 Functional Footer Design Inspiration

by . August 5th, 2011

Dead ends. It’s not fun finding yourself in one.

That fact alone makes footers essential in website design. It helps you keep readers involved on your site through links and other content you decide to place on your footer. It also gives you the space to place other elements that are otherwise unfit on sidebars or headers.

A footer is the perfect spot to place a short About information, a contact form, a tag cloud and other usable information or links. Others also go as far as placing recent comments, photo streams, a simple site map, blog rolls and an actual map of where their offices are located.

Indeed, your footer can be functional as well as it could be appealing. You need proof? We’ve found 30 that you can feast your eyes on. Enjoy!
