I second that Veerle link. She’s awesome.

t.z.f. no ajax, no flash, just a 5min/spare time project of our monthly adventures.

think of it as a blog updated once a month, monthlog?

Why must entire flash sites keep popping up in design :( If anything those are frustrating, not inspiring.

David 12 May 06

The Raconteurs web site is made to appear like an old green screen interface. Caught my eye and made me nostalgic for the commodore 64.

Michael 12 May 06

One thing I am tiring of quickly in “Web 2.0” (I hate this term) design is the whole soft, pastel pallette that everyone seems to use (and abuse). It’s like hanging out in a maternity ward. As for me, I can’t wait until the web grows up some more and gets back to bold, powerful colors that I appreciate.

I agree. Most of them are beautiful and eye-popping for sure, but I always end up yelling at my screen for the animation to stop. That and the incessant need to resize my browser window. Thaaaaaanks.

Now this is Flash done right. Too bad the music is so-so.

I thought that the holding page for http://www.eBible.com was pretty nice graphically.

Bopia’s font is too small, it is also eerily similar to http://veerle.duoh.com/

Ahsan 12 May 06

Wow! The airport site rocks

Peter 12 May 06

Mike, I have to desagree, I do not think www.bopia.com looks that much like veerle’s blog, maybe the dark colors but tons of reboot sites are using dark background. It’s in.

The font is a bit small, but you can always receize it to your liking.

Here’s one, although I’m not really sure “inspiring” is the right word…

Veerle’s website reminds me of Ordered List. That was the first website that led me into learning about web standards and stop using tables forever (next to ALA and CSS Zen Garden).

And what do you know, there is a picture on his Flickr photos of veerle!

http://www.gamespot.com/e3/index.html

Gamespot’s E3 website has a really funky “monster” cartoon theme that has great colour management, typography management and information flow (despite being full to the brim, but you can’t really expect anything else from such a type of website). It uses CSS effectively and minimal markup and feels really tight and clean, and also has hardly any overbearing advertisements.

I’m a fan of our new site… What do you all think?

http://www.3000k.com/

Jonis 12 May 06

http://www.zenfolio.com

Though it has great usability, I may not have paid for it if it weren’t so damn beautiful.

paul 12 May 06

eric i think it’s amusing when two companies use the same clipart: www.advantageconsultingservices.com/

RS 12 May 06

Thanks Jane. That nav is really original.

Simply stunning!

Paula Menez 12 May 06

Most links above are for design studios, I found this site while looking for better business bureau, they have a very nice and clean interface and a good system for creating complaints about companies http://www.beenfunkd.com

Cheshire Dave 12 May 06

Paul — they’re very similar, but not the same. Even if they were the same, 1) that’s the nature of stock images, and 2) at least Eric’s site did something interesting with the image.

Nice job, Eric.

I’m also pretty impressed with the Veerle site. Quite a lot of stuff, and yet it doesn’t feel overwhelming — feels more like the design invites you to stroll around the site.

condor 12 May 06

I’ve always been inspired by american apparel
http://www.americanapparel.net/

also the fact that they use yahoostores to sell their product online always sat right with me, they didn’t go out and try to cobble together their own ecommerce back end, they went with what worked.

Daren 12 May 06

No fancy graphics to clutter content here. Something clean.

iQ Content appears to especially like the usability of Adaptive Path’s website ;)

Andres Walker 13 May 06

This site design is great, I love it!

http://www.emaginacion.com.ar/

The weblog isn’t bad either!

erik 13 May 06

i have allways loved this site’s layout

www.beelerspace.com

--Josh 13 May 06

And emaginacion seems to like the graphical design around here.

The funny thing is that they try to take a jab at 37signals with the motto “Them: Less is more US: Balance is more” on a site with the entire color palette and style lifted directly from 37s.

~Jon 13 May 06

Pretty slick interface.

Veerle is completely overrated, its nothing good really at all design wise.

Its purely an eye candy site.

wow, what a bunch of self-promoting crap. Is this the best we got?

bob 15 May 06

…and I was wondering why the web was getting boring. Nothing on this list has been inspiring. Everything looks the same…except the flash sites, which look like every other flash site out there.

Where is the talent in this industry? Are all the designers chasing after the latest fad and forgetting to design something meaningful?

frodo 19 May 06

I agree with Bob. There is little here that is any different. Every one of these pages looks like they could be from the same designer. What the butt is going on?

lindsey 19 May 06

anyone know an awesome freelance web designer in SoCal?

application style? flash

john 21 May 06

this was on a site listing sites that have those sublibnal images sort of hidden in then, i had to press the refresh button to restart the animation at the top, looks like there is stuff in it but to me it seems a bit over the top

john 21 May 06

the address i found was http://www.qindex.co.uk
