    Love that NIC…

    • It aint about us, bruh. We’d love to serve others and give their work exposure. Thanks for the kind words.

  • Glad to see 3 websites done by Creative Edge Ltd on this list. We appreciate the recognition. Look out for even better designs this year.

  • Peter

    I guess there should be another one on the list called pikachakula.com they have a really good website aswell.

    Thanks for letting us know the best, i like the one of Jeff.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Peter.

      Pikachakula have awesome content (in fact, I think I’ll be checking in regularly before I mess around in the kitchen), but as far as design goes, only their logo is striking.

  • Mike

    • Awesome photography, man! My respects. I like the site too, congrats on making the list.

  • Victor

    the penya africa website is a commercial template not really designed in kenya

    • I know…

      • Half the sites in here would fit in that category then…the feel is classy, the images are well taken, content is arranged nicely..clearly a designer hu knows what he is doing #dontBeAHater

        • victor

          not hating, just thought that when i saw best of kenyan webdesigns i actually thought it would be websites designed from scratch but as you said the images are well taken and content well organised that i so agree with you

    • I agree with both of you to an extent. Yes it’s a commercial template, but the aim of it being featured here is not so that others may follow that example in their work.

      The aim is that Kenyans might be inspired to create their own designs and templates that will be better than what we’ve featured before.

      • true, i also use templates and i do get alot of inspiration from the too when designing from scratch

      • Walter

        Siku za commercial templates ni 40. Imagine a web designers embarassment when someone pints out to your client where you got the theme from .

  • We would like to say that we are honored that you selected our website as one of the best in Kenya. We would also like to attribute the success of our website to the vision of our Director, Susan Githuku, and the guidance of our web creators, Brand2D. Skyline Design should also be one of the best designed sites in Kenya, because it is! Grazie…

  • Love the idea to collect and appreciate good web design … I don’t agree with most, particularly the first collection but the collections are getting more refined and hey, we should respect each other’s opinions right?

    So I figured I’d throw in some my own (team effort with my brother), here goes;

    http://bityarn.co.ke/
    http://whiterhinohotel.com/
    http://rockresort.co.ke/
    http://butterflyalbums.com/

    All hand-coded :-)

    And your site is responsive! Nice … if the title on that little HTML5 icon is anything to go by … Kudos.

    • Hi King’ori. Thanks for the kind words.

      I had already seen two of the sites you’ve shared. Thanks for that as well. One was on the list coming at the end of April… I’ll include one more that I’ve found really well done in terms of attention to graphic detail.

      Nice work, keep it up.

  • Kim

    You must include http://www.stars300.com in your next list! I dont think any one in Kenya’s done such a great wedding site todate! Great collection you have here.

    Cheers man!

    • Hi Kim. Thanks for stopping by.

      I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but it’s straight out of the Theme Forest…

    • Rachel

    If you wanted to apply for a job in any of your successfully grown companies is it possible having completed a course in web design and an advantage of having a a cert in graphixs to do so?
