9 Outstanding Websites for Design Inspiration

Did you have a long weekend? Need to get the creative juices flowing again? Please take a look at this blog post below and view all 9 websites.

When it comes to web design and development, we’ve offered up our top picks for tools of the trade. We’ve shared great tips from pro developers. We’ve even wrangled exemplary sites to learn from.

But sometimes, a healthy dose of artistic inspiration is in order. If you’re a web designer (or web design afficianado) and low on creative juice, take a gander at some of these sites — recommended by top designers themselves — that push the limits of what artistic and technical expression can be on the web.

A lot of them are nice... but what's get my attention more is the "Awwward". The design is simple and not very complicated. Many site visitors are very conscious about the design of a website, if a visitors are having hard time with site interface... they leave!

Awwards is simple and clean for sure, but the one that popped out for me was Ben the bodyguard. Most of them have tried to get that 3D aspect in the design, but Ben's really nailed it IMO. Or maybe it was just the neon icons on the building's roofs.

I agree with you on the Atlantis website. The only thing i liked was when you scrolled down the page, the tube thing went with you. I was viewing this site and the other sites in IE9 btw.

I like the general theme of the website designs of being simple and elegant. I wonder how these designs fare with SEO performance?
