Our biotech web design agency presents the best biotech website designs we created over the last year. Our agency designs websites for startup and early-growth companies in the biotechnology industry, including drug discovery, therapeutics, genomics, cell therapy, biotech AI, CROs, and bioinformatics.

Here are examples of the best biotech websites we designed

Can your biotech website design hold your audience’s attention? Two facts tell us how hard it is. First, biotechnology is a highly competitive market with an expected annual growth rate of 15.83% from 2021 to 2028.

Second, people form an opinion about a website in less than two-tenths of a second, often from landing on the biotech website’s homepage.

The bottom line question is, can your biotech website design hold its own in a booming life sciences industry?

When you are a startup or early-growth biotech company, this is even more important as the eyes of investors, investigators, and future teams make decisions about your company.

We’ll examine the best biotech website designs and homepages we’ve created for early-growth and startup biotech companies in Boston, Cambridge, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, San Diego, San Francisco, Miami, and Houston.

First, let’s examine what goes into creating an award-winning biotech website for an emerging life sciences company.

Alamar Biosciences needed a site that would highlight its technology and attract investors and employees. That’s why we created a homepage that guides users to three main pages: Technology, Team, and Careers.

This homepage is elegantly simple. With just two clicks, site visitors can read about Alamar’s impressive technology and learn how to join their growing team.

The phase 1 version of the company’s website was launched early Spring 2021 but the most recent phase two evolution of the website was launched in early 2022.

Dual-Purpose Biotech Website Design: 

The homepage features a stunning design that is simple to navigate. This site needed to distinguish and highlight Pledge Therapeutics’ biotech brands and technologies. We used simple animations to draw attention to the company’s various features without having to leave the homepage.
