1. CSS Zen Garden
When I first started my business, a friend and former colleague turned me on to this wonderfully inspirational site called csszengarden.com. I still go there for inspiration. I loved the idea that one web page could look so many different ways just by changing the CSS. If you are looking for some inspirational designs and want to see a variety of styles, then you will enjoy CSS Zen Garden.
When I started thinking about my favorite sites, I went to unmatchedstyle.com to look at all of them! This is a great site to see some of the latest and greatest in web design. The submitted designs come from all over the world and cover a wide range of businesses from personal to big-time! I consider most of these designs (and designers) to be “cutting-edge” and hope that you will enjoy this site as well. While you are there, you can also vote for your favorites!
3. CSS Winner
CSSWinner.com rounds out my top 3 favorite sites for inspiration. This is much like unmatchedstyle, in that they feature submitted designs that show a range of different sites covering a wide range of topics/products. This site picks a daily and monthly winner, so you can see what voters like in design concepts. This site showcases so much talent, I could spend all day looking at these amazing designs.
If you are a designer or developer looking for more inspiration, take a look at these three sites and get inspired! Do you have a favorite site that you use for inspiration? Let me know, I’d love to hear.
