    Chicago L – Shirts is my favourite just because they use Helvetica in the designs! ;-) Everyone loves Helvetica!

  • sixturnseven-seo, September 5, 2010

    Although they are nice enough designs, they are seriously not optimal for search engine rankings.

    Look pretty, but provide little or no content or depth, like a stereotypical dumb blonde !

  • Alex Penny, September 6, 2010

    Love the pixelworkers website

  • Web Templates, September 11, 2010

    I’m not a fan of sites that have huge graphics on index, that real estate is too important to squander IMO.

  • Lucian Marin, September 14, 2010

    Hunter’s wines is really one of my favorite. So intuitive and everything is on the first page. The design and product presentation gives you the envy to purchase :).
