    All the designs have unique attractive look, and I really like the way these designers adopt the concept on each design, Surely they do have great skills of web design and development.

    La Piuma has a beautiful design, love the hover action over the birds, the border style to the container, the grunge graphics really work well with the colour scheme of the site and the colours of the bird graphics.

    I really dislike the Kipling website, very disjointed and no flow to designs. Although there are some clever little bits going on with the joins of images, it becomes lost with the size of it all, and even on my fast connection it is laggy.

    Use of typography in Nicole Cozzolino website is brave, and verges on not working, but somehow it does. Bold type on a light background really makes an impact, and the content of the site still comes through well.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Really like the colors utilized in the different pages of the ‘girl with a camera’ website. And the simple, very clean design is just perfect. Thanks for sharing the inspiration Gisele.

    Some interesting designs, thank you for the showcase! I liked rainstarboutique – minamilistic design with unexpected and interesting animation effects in css and js! rethinkstoraenso was also interesting as the design is creatively incorporating their product and what the company is about. Thanks for the share!
