  1. Awesome article, but why is it that all the really cool backgrounds and colours etc are only used on “portfolio/blog” websites?

  2. AWESOME!!! This is exactly what the doctor ordered. So many sites have wonderful examples of creative, innovative and modern work. But few of them show you have to create your own!!! Thanks and please keep them coming!

  3. These are some really great examples of creative design here. I do really like Digitalmash, it has a simple layout and the part I like about it the most is the images in the middle, it is just different to what you normally see. I mean they are all great but that one just stuck out from the rest of them. This is a really useful resource for inspiration.

  4. I see a lot of sites where the text will be a light gray and the background is white – err! That’s very annoying and hard to read.

  5. Great point, terrific website. Listen, did you guys read about Blizz looking to use Real ID on the online community? It seems they recognized that that is no way to win at wow, as they reversed their decision. Now we can all go back to playing wow without having to worry about compromised privacy. And they can go back to working on Starcraft. BooYAH!

  6. Let me first start by saying I am def no expert! Every time I try and create a background like the above Tnvacation the background moves around when I change my screen resolution. For instance in the Tnvacation (if I create that) and I changed the screen resolution lower the background image would shrink towards the center of the screen. So you wouldn’t be able to see the phone, guy singing or the stuff at the top. It would be behind the DIV page. How does on correct that issue?

    Thanks

    1. Well I figured out its just my body div getting larger and cover up more of my background. How do I stop that from happening?

  7. I must admit, I always vie drought liked the retro theme, actually … papyrus parchment. But all of these variations is extremely effective and beautiful.
