Two websites that I think are worthy of checking out this week…
Open Source Web Design – URL: www.oswd.org
This is great site to get inspired, browse and download free web design templates.Perhaps, more importantly, it allows you to share your designs with others. Currently, they boast 2080 web designs to browse and download at no cost. I often browse around the site when I need to get inspired and feeling creatively challenged – good source for design ideas. Francis Skettino founded the site in September 2000 with a goal “to provide the Open Source community with quality web designs to help get people’s projects on the web in a way that is both organized and good looking.” You will find all types of sites from personal blogs, to content management systems to full fledged businesses.
The site is definitely worth a look go check them out at www.oswd.org
Design By Humans – URL: www.designbyhumans.com
I found this site posted on Open Source Web Designs site – I thought it was worth a mention and a good example of the ideas that can be found at the Open Source Web Design site. I think Design By Humans is a neat concept – “a community centered around t-shirt designs” – with a twist. Created to provide “a place for people to submit, discover and buy amazing custom t-shirt designs created by artists from around the world.” The cool part of the concept is that the site is based around an “ongoing t-shirt design contest”. Headquartered in Irvine California the site was officially launched in July 2007. This is another site that should provide some inspiration when you find yourself at a loss for creativity.
