Gatsby has been gaining major attention over the last year but we’re betting that 2020 will see even more growth. If you’re thinking of building a Gatsby site or upgrading your existing build, these 10 sites have unique aspects that can inspire your own project. Here's to a great year with Gatsby!

1) shopflamingo.com

Built in 2018, this site still has to be one of the fastest commerce experiences out there for consumers. The page loads feel instant and the engaging design makes it easy to browse throughout the whole site. For many companies, this would be a worthy site to aspire to in 2020, 2021, and maybe even a couple more years down the road!

2) thenotedproject.org

This is the future of digital storytelling — gripping imagery, emotionally-charged narratives and an interactive experience that removes all barriers to diving into each story. Rather than us explain why it’s so great, it’s worth just seeing for yourself. Seriously, go check it out.

3) hawaiinational.bank

Blazing-fast speed is essentially synonymous with Gatsby at this point and this has to be the fastest site in the finance industry. The site still feels like a sophisticated corporate site but user friction has been minimized with such uncompromising performance.

4) goldmedalflour.com

You probably have Gold Medal Flour in your pantry right now but beyond the flour, their marketing site is also one of the fastest Gatsby sites out there. Check out this site if you want to see image optimization done right or get some fresh ideas on new recipes.

5) thirdandgrove.com

We might be biased but 2019 was a big year for us. We rebranded TAG to emphasize our commitment to being the best digital partner. There’s plenty to love about the Drupal + Gatsby build which strikes a balance between performance, backend flexibility, and modern aesthetic. We even open-sourced our entire front end if you like what we did.

6) hopper.com

To go along with their modern and easy-to-use app, Hopper built a Gatsby site that has some strong and subtle interactivity. This is a great example of a modern aesthetic that can be achieved with Gatsby.

7) 2019.stateofeuropeantech.com

The teams at Atomico, Slush, and Orrick have done a tremendous job of building the annual State of European Tech report. The site is impressive, to say the least, on how much dynamic content there is from maps to charts. Beyond Gatsby, this site is just a good example of how to build data-rich sites that are a joy to look through.

8) gotmilk.com

Gatsby has attracted some big-name brands and we expect to see even more breakthroughs in 2020. The Got Milk team has built a clean site with artful storytelling that can entertain kids and inform parents.

9) impossiblefoods.com

It’s fitting — a disruptive food brand leveraging disruptive technology to build a fast brand-driven experience. Even if you’re not sold on the idea of plant-based burgers, you can still appreciate what they’ve been able to build with Gatsby.

10) Housecallpro.com

A marketing site meant to lead prospects down the funnel. The Housecall Pro team launched their new site earlier in 2019 and saw a 973% increase in organic traffic to their blog. SEO is another reason we love Gatsby!

And a bonus Gatsby experience because it was hard narrowing down to just 10!
 

11) cardiogram.com

The Cardiogram app is your personal healthcare assistant that tracks your heart health down to the minute. It’s a powerful site that lets the data shine and feels more like their minimalist designed app. (Oh, you also have to check out their neat data on how heart rate changes on various activities such as watching a Game of Thrones episode. Sometimes your heart rate is just as high as working out!)
