    Great collection Noura. Thanks for mentioning my post on grid-based design.

  2. Noupe on April 6th, 2008 at 2:17 pm

    Thanks Steven, your post had useful information that i wanted to share

  3. Vincent on April 6th, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    Thanks for the link! I’m working on a redesign right now; I’ll try to let you know when it launches.

  4. Michael Martin on April 6th, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    Incredible collection (And you were too modest to put your own design in there!). Bookmarked as a great source of inspiration for more unique styles. :)

  5. Vinh Le on April 6th, 2008 at 3:27 pm

    I’m always looking for great blog designs and you got a great collection here. Thanks for the list.

  6. Badang on April 6th, 2008 at 5:30 pm

    Wow, truly inspirational.

    There’s a never ending of creativity and it is amazing to see that coming from people everywhere.

  7. Tom Ross on April 6th, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    Thanks for the link, a great list you have there :)

  8. Luc on April 6th, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Thanks for the list! Very sleek! :)

  9. Dom on April 6th, 2008 at 11:41 pm

    Very nice list. Thanks!

  10. Myo Kyaw Htun on April 7th, 2008 at 1:52 am

    Thank you so much for mentioning my site under Super Clean Designs. I’ll write a post and will sent trackback to this post.

    Best regards,

  11. Polo on April 7th, 2008 at 2:22 am

    Nice listn thanks !

  12. mk on April 7th, 2008 at 2:27 am

    great list. there is another one:

  13. JamieO on April 7th, 2008 at 5:06 am

    Ha. At first glance I thought the title of this article was 60+ unusable, not unusual. A list of horrible designs would be amusing.

    Although, most people who recognize the value of a CMS and chose WordPress as a platform probably aren’t going to make a site that is ugly as sin and non-functional.

  14. princess on April 7th, 2008 at 5:10 am

    Wow,Very nice list. Thanks!

  15. Internet Business Blogger on April 7th, 2008 at 6:26 am

    Great list, trouble is I sent it to my wife which will lead me to much work rebuilding her blog design.

    Thanks anyway

  16. Radu on April 7th, 2008 at 7:11 am

    Thanks for the feature mate, glad you liked my playground.


  17. IDX on April 7th, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    This is the best web design inspiration list I’ve seen in a while. Many Thanks.

  18. Jonesie on April 7th, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Thanks for the great information–very helpful.

  19. Liz on April 7th, 2008 at 1:06 pm

    Thanks for the nod to Pop Culture Tees! It was a lot of fun creating the design for the site, which had ample inspiration from the 80s.

    It’s really amazing to see ALL the ways you can take wordpress and really push it beyond the world of plain jane layouts.

    Great article – looking through all these sites will keep me busy for at least a few hours!

  20. Siam on April 7th, 2008 at 2:07 pm

    Great list, I especially love the “markup” design! You should also have a look at the openbook theme.

  21. James Abney-Hastings on April 7th, 2008 at 3:11 pm

    Thank you so much for featuring my web site, especially amongst such fine company! Great post, it’s great to see such a variety here.

  22. Dan Nanasi on April 7th, 2008 at 3:17 pm

    You put Daninko on there? That one sucks bad dude.

  23. Noupe on April 8th, 2008 at 12:03 am

    @Vincent, You are welcome. Let me know when you launch the new design.
    @Michael Martin, @Tom Ross, @Luc, @Myo Kyaw Htun, @Radu, James Abney-Hastings, @Liz, @Dan Nanasi:
    We put in a lot of time getting this amazing designs listed here, it was really a great pleasure working on a post full of such inspiration.

    hey, thanks for the post. It was really useful for me.

  35. Sketchee on May 5th, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    It seems like the sites I tend to come back to have very minimalist and well organized designs. I love that these guys push the limits of WordPress design. Design always has that fringe that makes us all push ourselves just a little further

  36. Owen on May 15th, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    I like it!they are very beautiful!

  37. Alex on May 27th, 2008 at 1:49 pm

    You should have a look ;)

    Good continuation,
