    Hello!!!
    Has anyone else noticed the trend of cartoonish looking websites?
    I do like it very much but it might get overused…if abused.
    Do you think that a big freelancing agency like eΙαnce,cοm or http//www.peopleperhour.com would see any benefit by using cartoons for their website design?
    I would like to apply to one of them and I would like to know what other people think in order to have some advice or two if they ask me for.
    Otherwise I would say they would have a benefit. The one of friendliness.

    I’d never use illustrations on my webdesigns, just some small or sometimes big icons. I think it’s something that says something about my style, but when I see this I’m thinking that I would love to use an illustratione sometimes in my designs! thanks

    I have never seen such illustrations before and I like these examples very much. You can create such web designs by using different latest tools and software and create the professional web designs for the website which attracts the new users to your website. You can use the special fonts in the design and I like the design of the Evoluxion the reason is that the color and the style of the fonts is excellent which helps to draw the attention of the users.

    As an illustrator these designs are so inspiring. I’ve bookmarked the page so I can come back for inspiration in the future. Thanks for sharing them.
