There is a large amount of incredibly creative minds out there, in an effort to share Web Designs which have inspired my design work, and helped me learn more about Graphics Design and Digital Art, I decided to highlight some of the best Website Layout Designs, on the net.
ScarletBits.com features "unconventional" colors which are bold and out there, which is one of the reasons I think I liked it so much. It blends it's unusual colors with a traditional Blog Layout, superb design work.
AudioJungle.net has a simple layout as easy and intuitive to use as Google, but it still has some pretty neat Web 2.0 style design, this blend of functionality and design is an excellent example of the way a website needs to be.
CreativeOverflow.net blends photography, graphics design, and several other elements of design, into one seamless Web Layout, these types of layouts are fairly difficult, but the effect is very cool. Excellent looking website.
Tutorial9.net is very similar to Creative Overflow except the design seems to emphasize Vector artwork quite a bit more, there is alot of useful content, and a neatly arranged layout, very inspirational.
In addition to being very useful to web designers (by providing a great list of textures) TextureLovers.com also uses those textures to produce a neat looking website. The website is slick and easy to navigate, plus features an elegant use of textures which can provide some great inspiration.
SimpleBits.com is a great example of a minimilistic website design, it clears out any clutter and displays it's content with simplicity, which for many designs would probably be an upgrade.
In addition to being a very creative idea, GamerDNA.com is one of the most intuitive and user-friendly web interfaces i've ever seen. Everything is Ajax powered (even the login, which is very difficult to do) and it has nifty buttons and an intuitive layout in addition to a sleek design. Very inspirational.
Joshua Ink, features a blend of nature and minimilistic style web design, which makes for a pretty easy to read website, the website also has useful content, which is always a plus!
Blurb.com is short and to the point, it is easy to read and clearly identifies what the website is out to accomplish. Many websites flood their users with Too Much Information at first, and while content is king, you have to have a way for people to intuitively learn from or about your site, at a natural pace.
Throw in a cool JQuery Slideshow, some dark texture filled text, and easy to follow easy to read text, and you have Edit Studios, sort of a clicheish website design, but inspiring nonetheless.
Great examples of Wbsite Design
