    @claire – I’m in the same boat. In my mind I have the best intentions for what I want to do, but then the client always steers me away from what I was thinking by wanting something more corporate-tized.

    Thanks Chris, for the cool list, very inspirational. These sites will definitely add to my mind’s eye for the one day when I get a client that says “Go nuts, do whatever you want!” Or maybe I can redesign my own site…

    There are some damn good designers out there!

    No doubt there are some brilliant designers at work out there. Thanks for introducing us to some really cool sites!

    As a side note, don’t you think it’s a little funny that as designers we often fall back on “paper media” to help us with our digital designs!

    The Art of Paper :)

    All those paper designs are really great artwork! But many of them have been showcased over and over. Seems to be a fair sign that grunge is already becoming mainstream. Whereas the colorful, clean, geometrical designs like Veerle Pieters’ Duoh! still seem to be too avantgardistic to be recognized. I am wondering as to when they will hit the design blogs …
