30 Fresh and Beautiful Web Designs

By / Oct 4, 2010 / Inspiration

Every Monday we showcase a collection of inspiring web designs to get your week started on a good note. We normally focus the collections on a particular category, but this week we are doing something a little different. We noticed that you probably were missing out on some great looking sites because they didn’t fit into the categories were were covering. So this week we are showcasing a mixture of designs that don’t necessarily belong in the same niche, but do have something in common…beauty. Enjoy!

    Awesome collection! 😀 Tho I visited some of them before, there are some new fresh sites that really inspired me to do better. :)

    Thanks for sharing Giselle!

    just what I needed – these designs have certainly influenced my new design. Now I just need to do it!

  • http://www.designmango.com DesignMango

    Very Nice. I might have a little redesign of my own site this week!

  • Jamie

    Amazee Labs just reminds me of carsonified.com

    A great list.

  • Chris

    AmazeeLabs has the same feel of another favorite website of mine.. Carsonified http://carsonified.com/

  • http://9blogtips.com (9) Nice Blog Tips

    yeah, cool web designs, but I see almost in this list are single page / personal blogs; that’s reason they have a fresh & nice design?

  • http://www.austinwebsitesolutions.net/ Bryan

    Thanks for the share! These kinds of creations really inspire me.

  • http://www.20milesnorth.com Spokane Rob

    Seems like a lot of great designers are going back to a more minimal feel to their websites.

  • Scott

    Try the McKinney site on an iPad. Wow.

  • http://designbuddy.com DesignBuddy

    A couple of these designs have got me drooling. From the amount of tweets you have gotten from this post, it appears I’m not the only one who thinks these are some good choices. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • http://squaregirl.com Krystyn (Squaregirl)

    I’m humbled to have my site featured in such a superb collection. Thank you!

  • bird

    Sorry – same critique as always – these websites are incredibly similar, and most are websites for web designers. Where are the websites for hardware stores and shampoo companies and local governments?

    Looking at designer portfolio websites is like .0001% of the web, and not particularly useful for working designers…

  • http://www.smartdogdigital.com Illiya Vjestica

    Awesome collection, thank you for sharing this there are some amazing examples here.

  • http://siliconheavengroup.com/ jack thomas

    nice web design. Thanks for sharing your example for web design.

  • Dave

    Some good designs here, but it’s depressing to see how many personal portfolio/design team websites there are. We designers are becoming a dime a dozen!

  • http://www.impresario1.com Alfie

    Now this is what we call FRESH! Nice round-up. All new!
