It’s that time of year when the snow starts falling (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere) and the ski season is in full swing, so I thought it would be fitting for this week’s web design showcase to appreciate some designs that are based on snowy Winter scenes. Many of these sites actually look the same all year round, but now is the time their themes are most relevant, especially those from the Winter sports industry. Grab your thermals and enjoy browsing this collection of 20 snowy website designs all featuring seasonal photography and interfaces.
Think of the colour schemes we tend to see modern web design. Aside from the plenty of minimalist sites made up of white and grey tones, often websites are constructed with just a single highlighting colour against a white backdrop. However, in this showcase we can see there’s some really adventurous designers out there who mix and match some unusual colour combinations. These designs feature colours you probably would have thought of, but they all look great and work perfectly together with beautiful contrast.
Web design conferences are great places for you to learn new techniques from the experts and keep up to date with the latest advances of the industry. To capture the interest of their audience of designers you would expect these conferences to boast cutting edge website designs to present their lineup of speakers and share all the details of the event. Unfortunately many fail to meet these expectations, but there are a hand full of events that lead the way with beautiful websites. This post showcases 20 of the best web designs of upcoming design conferences in 2014.
Today’s web design showcase is for all you designers who share a passion with both the web industry and cars & motorbikes. Websites from the automotive industry are typically amongst the ugliest out there with interface designs straight from the late 90s. There are some hidden gems to be enjoyed though, such as these 20 websites I’ve picked out for this showcase. These designs are beautifully designed with modern technologies, often incorporating multimedia effects and stunning large format photography to show off the manufacturer’s products.

As one of the core design principles, typography can really make or break a website design. Despite recent advances in web type technology we’re still fairly limited when it comes to creative typography layouts, meaning image replacement techniques are still common, but these days we have massive choice when it comes to selecting fonts for our designs. This post showcases 40 website designs that all feature beautiful typography in a creative way, this might be through elegant typographic layouts or perfectly typeset combinations of styles to create visually pleasing pages.
