Stripe's Homepage is a picture-perfect example of what every startup strives to emulate (but really shouldn't). They've been the source of inspiration for many, paving the way for design trends. But there's an ugly truth about it: It's impossible for Stripe to create a bad page, which is exactly why startups shouldn't try to emulate them. Design and aesthetic? Sure, go for it. But, copy and page elements? Probably can't pull it off like Stripe can.
