29 Fresh Examples of Timeline in Web Design & Infographics

Sometimes it is better to use graphics than a thousand words to explain a complex topic.

You might have seen a few websites that use timelines to present information in a specific order. It’s an efficient way to display events and data chronologically on a single page.

A timeline can be used to present information effectively and cleanly. For example, you can use the timeline on the “About Us” page to show how your business has grown in the last couple of months/years.

These days, many websites and smartphone apps are adapting timeline-based designs to present their stories. Your Facebook profile page is a great example of that.

Here we will not explain the patterns, traditional designs, or the way stories are presented on social media platforms. Instead, we have showcased eye-catching designs based on a ‘timeline approach.’ These designs will help you figure out how to display data in creative ways and increase customer retention and conversion rate.

Below are the live examples of timelines in web design and infographics for your inspiration. They are listed in no particular order. You need to open websites and templates to see real effects in high resolution.
