Being a fairly active Twitterer and follower of a number of web design blogs, I’ve gathered a useful set of links to ‘themed’ website collections that I turn to for inspiration when thinking about the design of a new site. Here are a few of my favorites that I’ve visited again and again.
Color and Texture
- 25 Modest websites with a muted color scheme – very pretty, simplistic but not simple.
- Texture in modern web design – I love giving a site the appearance of more tactile surfaces with some subtle texture additions.
- 30 Textures for vintage designs – not so subtle, these.
- Navigation menu trends and examples – from 2008. A nice collection.
- Tabbed navigation and why it’s so useful – a collection of user-friendly tab menus.
