    Thank you all for your concern about the copyright, but that's not the help I was looking for. Besides, this is actually for personal use. I came to this forum to find a perspective on the Art and design,...

  • Web design "layout" ideas

    I'm toying with the notion to have my site re-designed...I'm in no hurry, but perhaps in a few months I can unleash the new version.

    I'm looking for something edgy yet romantic too...something functional and easy to read, but also a site that is just plain good to look at, and of course, something that reflects my eccentric personality.

    I have not had the best luck in the past with designers. The first guy I went to was in his last year of college and basically took my idea/template and made it live. He added a blog and a contact section but that's pretty much it. Won't say how much I paid for it but it wasn't worth it.

    The next designer I went to did a great job initally. She seemed to really get my style but made it all flash based which I guess is difficult for search engines to find me.

    My friend though, who is starting out with a web design company, offered insight and suggestion on how I can make it better and of course, it got me thinking about how others "see" it because it's going to make a reflection of my product and company. Of course, I want that opnion to be positive.

    She said if I could come up with some links to some sites to give her an idea of what I like and don't, she can work up a quote and help me out.

    My question to you is, where can I find samples of interesting and edgy/bold/colourful websites? I just want to see what's out there and grab a few screen shots of areas of the sites that I like...that sort of deal. I don't want it to look flowery or over-female but something that's...me.

    Sorry but I'm gonna give the cheeky answer and say The Internet...

    Okay. I think probably you need to check out sites that in the same market as what you will be building. Maybe a generic google search to start out and see where that takes you. You could also check out some of the blogs on the main page of our forum here to take a look at what is current and happening. I think you will find lots of examples as you start to get link after link from these types of places.

        Websites like www.smashingmagazine.com http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/ and www.abduzeedo.com and others often have web roundup type of things so you can often see a lot of various webdesign styles and examples through them.

              do a search for "css showcase" or something similar. There are a lot of showcase sites out there.
