    I always think I let my designs down when it comes to the footer. But these are top examples of interesting footers and great inspiration.

  • Idragons, 07 March 2011

    nice collection, what do you think about our footer?

  • Dutch, 07 March 2011

    You should’ve included footers without illustrations. They are nice, but you cannot use these kind of footers for all types of websites.

    • Tugi, 07 March 2011

      Completely agree with u, I specialise in desiging company websites and they need to have a serious design rather than casual. These footers are very creative but not suitable for all types of websites.

    It’s a great collection, shows that with all sorts of colors and textures can be obtained excellent results

    The illustration on Estebanmunoz reminds me of a site Copious (the agency I work for) designed for McMenamins Pubs & Breweries in Portland, OR — also with a really sweet footer: http://www.mcmenamins.com
