I love sites such as campaign monitor & youlove.us but I can’t help saying that some of these slick sites look a little templatey!!!

Wow … each and every one are competing to one another. ‘Central snowsports’ is the one that made my day :)

Every developer should take some time out to study these sites well. You know why? Because these sites exhibit a rare blend of things that can really make a big difference – viz. aesthetics, functionality and usability. A very good list here, Jacob. Thanks for the post.

Great examples, guys. Jesse’s work on Campaign Monitor wins the day for me. His attention to detail is excellente.

While “round-ups” aren’t my favorite blog posts, due to the immense duplicate content amongst hundreds of other blog posts out there, I enjoy most of yours because you do a good job of focusing on a specific inspiration and you do a decent job of not repeating what’s been repeated numerous times before on numerous other blogs. Good job, Jacob and great collection. :)

WOW! That’s a great list of amazing web design. I think we can learn from some of them and redesign our site too. We think the color doesn’t have to be web 2.0. It gotta be simple and straight forward.

Agree with Ashley Adams that developer should have some sense of web design. So they know how the user experience will come our right.

Nobody noticed the Miro screenshot is completely screwed, top left and top right? If this is the level of attention paid to detail, it makes me sad. :(

These designs are soft and clean and eye-pleasing, but nothing more.
