  • Craig Farrall, September 2, 2008

    Wow, a great collection of websites there, I have seen a few of them before, but there are plenty more inspirational websites there.

  • Nathan Beck, September 2, 2008

    Some sick looking websites there. I wish I could get some of that level of graphic design, illustration and organic art across in my often boringly clean designs.

    These are sites breaking out of the web 2.0 mould and showing what can be done when you add a bit of artistic flare to your designs.

    Not a reflected logo in sight!

  • Rachel, September 2, 2008

    Gorgeous websites with lots of enthusiasm in every pixel :) Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed every one of them.

  • Diseño web, September 5, 2008

    All of them are great, but Phizz’s website if my favorite. And I can’t believe that fourtraveldeals didn’t use images for the texts under the 4 center images… IT’S ALL CSS!!!

  • Hummer H2, September 6, 2008

    Wow….great collections and i really liked those.

  • Fred, September 6, 2008

    Would be interesting to see how the users interact with the websites. I could see some definite possibilities.

  • Michele, September 8, 2008

    The styles inspire me. I have been coming to your website for a long time now, and I always walk away with incredible ideas. I have two designs, one I made a while ago, and another I am working on right now. My book layout (found in old projects) was inspired from here, and my cartoon (found in current projects) style set I’m working on now also inspired from visiting here. Anyone that comes to your site and walks away with empty thoughts … well :)

    Thanks for all the wonderful ideas and help. You truly inspire me! Thanks again!

  • Vandelay Design, September 8, 2008

    Thanks Michele. I’m glad you’re finding something useful here.

  • Vandelay Design, June 5, 2009

    SIPPS,
    I did not design these sites. It’s simply a collection of some very good websites from a variety of designers.

  • Hans, October 30, 2009

    Waw, Amazing arts… But have get much bandwith to this design?

  • Thanks for sharing Nice collection.

  • Vera from Bucharest, December 21, 2009

    Not that I am picky or something. I (by far) don’t have the skills to be a judge. I am just a lousy amateour, most likely making fun of myself in my few free minutes a day.

    BUT

    what I see in these very artistic websites is that the designers copy and paste from one to another the same themes, over and over again, seemingly in order to exhaust on purpose the visitor’s eye.

    There is

    1. the awry typing, allegedly hand writing, awry underlined when hovered, which looks silly, is “in” now, but won’t have a long future because it is purely stupid.
    2. the annoying header with mermaids and flowers, which is just a boring variety on the same theme.
    3. the theme of the coffee and the pen on the desk. awfully common already.
    4. the ancient tree theme, which climbs from footer to header and back. meaou or whatever is the name of that website made in flash is amazing though. however, others copied the idea and now pretend being original and “creative” with the same “tree”.
    5. then there is the “nothing” website theme, which has just some good fonts and this is it, like Michael Jackson used to say. Websites bombastically called “minimalistic”. Don’t get me wrong. I have a minimum idea of what a minimalistic website looks like, it’s just that some of them are just empty pages which look rather like a simple loose blog.

    These designers all do have high html skills, but I see that most of them have little imagination.

    Diego Monetti impressed me to the point that I fell in love with whoever that dude is. That is indeed something. Originality, attitude, message, depth, refinement. he has it all.

    I have seen here other flash websites that also impressed me a lot. But the CSS section looks pretty sad. And I am sure that Vandelay collected the best out there, cos he is probably the best site collector.

    Thank you for everything Vandelay and keep up the great work!!
    You’re the truth, not them!

    • Vandelay Website Design, December 21, 2009

      Vera,
      Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion. I do agree with you that when trends get to the point of being overdone, the creativity can be a bit lacking. From a designer’s perspective though, there can still be some things learned from looking at well-designed sites, whether they are trends that have been overkilled or not. For example the desk/coffee mug theme. I wouldn’t use this style for a site because it certainly has been done plenty of times before, but I still appreciate a nice illustration or design work to create the site. That’s just my opinion, but I’ll also point out the this post is over a year old, and so trends that have been beaten to death now may not have been that way when this post was published.

  • Vera from Bucharest, January 12, 2010

    So sorry Vandelay, I wrote a message, but I lost it.

    The server is bad. I was just saying that I thank you for your kind and quite unexpected reply, that I don’t agree with Flanders who posts artistic sites like chiquita on his outdated page that sucks and so on.

    I LOVE flash, maybe also because I am completely inept with it and I think that “moving images” are the future of web design. The simple CSS is too static and it will soon disappear. The CSS designers have beautiful backgrounds, they are very good with photoshop, painters indees, some of them, but they should just move in the animation field. That’s my take on the whole thing.

    I have seen a CSS website that I liked:

    http://www.dejanbeljic.com/
    I’m sure that you know it.

    I am also amazed how websites like Chiquita are posted on web pages that suck!!

    That is a quite good flash, I believe, not a crap!! and should be posted HERE, not there.

    http://www.eatachiquita.com/

    If I have time to come across a nice website, I’ll let you know. It is fantastic when people that you know nothing about give a response, like you did, and your coworkers don’t even say Hi in the morning.

    Many thanks and regards and a Happy New Year!
