    Many colors = amateurs, or not “serious” business.

    Very very cool. They must worked so hard to create these creative things. In long term, our designer will try.

    with all do respect, some nice ones, but a lot we have seen already over and over again and hardly are fresh and inspiring anymore.

    could do with some fresh input and critical view to weed out the not very best.

    Just my $0.02

    A lot of creativity. My favourite is 23 “good”. The navigation system of the home page is very fun. But the site should be bigger ^^ Too much spaces on a big screen. Beautiful realization.

    I am a non non expert computer user. I would appreciate clear options and instructions with only enough graphics to attract attention. As the original article indicates, too many experts expect some computer knowledge or understading of jargon, this applys to web pages and other attempts to communicate on the internet. Some have beautiful graphics that make it hard to find or read the information a user needs. Also I don’t like to go thru several pages to find out it I am going where I want to go.
    I would like to see someone incorporate their experteze and yet be easy to use. I don’t neccesrily mean intuitive as intuitive is not neccesrily intuitive to all of us.
    Use large plain type so it can be read on a small screen by someone who does not know how to increase type size or enlarge the slide. I often delete something I am interested in simply because I cant read it or understand the jargon. This reply page is an exanple of type too small for me and my laptop computer. I am having dificulty writing this. Where is the spell check to find errors that are too small for me to see?

    I’ve seen the Feed Stitch design featured everywhere! It’s a great example of colourful design that people love. These sites all have beautiful designs but I think many of them might struggle to pass usability and accessibility guidelines. I’d say it’s always important to consider EVERY user when designing your site. Nevertheless – a great collection of designs. Thanks Hilde.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

      Try this: http://www.tawdis.net/ingles.html?lang=en and check your website with it. Should point what you should do. :)
      This is quite a pain, especially when your website’s design is already finished. There’s no easy solution, better ask a professional’s help. IE is a pain, really.

    Ditto Karl –
    many of these are way old and have been pushed around for a while. Additionally there’s not alot of variance here – overall looks kinda word-pressy and bloggy. feh. woulda been nice to see mix in some real design work and typography into all the illustrations.

    One is for shore they are very colorful, my eyes still shining from too much color. I prefer elegance and only for that reason, and that people like I am on this list could be more different designs!!!
    Bdw these are not bad list I don`t think so, on the contrary…
