  1. Wow. These are nice. Thank you! I am always a bit disheartened though, when the crux of the design is a stock image with no major deviations from the original file. I saw a few on here right off of istock. I love the idea of supporting stock artists, but make your designs your own.

  2. Great inspiration. These headers have a great variety of styles, and I love that they’re deviating from the “web 2.0” look (I didn’t see one reflection!) It seems that the trend is moving toward a “busier” image with more things happening, plenty of eye-catching elements. Good stuff!

  3. Thanks so much, guys.

    Very true Gabe. I think many designer these days are working away from the “web 2.0” style, I don’t think that the typical ‘Web 2.0 Look’ is a bad thing at all; they just need to be used in moderation and with care.

  4. Thanks for featuring me and the added inspiration.
    On the debate of Web2.0: I might be talking for myself here, but I do not think that the majority of the sites listed here fit the description of this style. (Some of them are simply not shiny enough;-)
    However, just like Noupe already said: The web 2.0 style is not necessarily bad. Just don’t overdo it.

  5. Most of these are too busy. they only cater for one type of visitor.

    I find that when a site tries to “sell” itself with a lot of bells and wissels the content is usually weak.

    Distracting a user from the content is not usually the best way to go.

  6. This showcase is really amazing!. I spent all evening just enjoying the view. I apologize for my english since is not my mother language, and I will talk about this post in my blog. Guys you really ROCK!. ;)
