    There are some fantastic websites here. They all deserve to be showcased. I love Owl Concepts. The background is amazing and I love the use of HTML5. The ‘Our team’ section of Sajak&Farki is really quirky. Others I like are Twofold, Dynamit and Favolla, all are going to be great for future inspiration.

    Seems like a lot of these websites have stuck with a simple formula that works — using a big focal point — whether it’s an illustration, huge graphic text or a swath of color. Great design work!
