I think this post came just at the right time! I’m mid way through designing a dark site, and these have just given me plenty of ideas to finish it off!

I really like the contrasting use of patterns and textures on Hollister’s website. I’m also a fan of the youzee design, its so boldly simple which makes it work well.

I think my favourite is this mans life, there’s a nice use textures and shadows and I like the subtle division between the different sections.

Very amazing!!
thank you:-))

Absolutely love the 42Angels, Boudin & Beer and Sullivan NYC web sites. SUPERB!!!

All gorgeous looking sites !I love the contrasts in the darker sites but after reading the lighter text on the darker background I tend to see stripes when I look away to something – a bit the like the flash effect with a photo :)

At Tabtrick we decided to go with a dark theme too. It has worked out pretty well for us and we think it looks really good.
