    How many more websites do we need to see with the same laptop sitting on the screen giving the same exact effect???

    And how many do we need to see showing an iPhone???

    So if I make a website showing a MacBook and and three iPhones sitting on top of it, does that make me a really cool designer????? :)

    How about we show something creative for a change? There are so many original websites out there we’d rather see…

    To be honest I couldn’y agree more with Ade. The reviewed webdesigns above all have a similar grid.

    Sure, it communicates the message but what about real creativity instead of changing the background and some fonts?

    Hope the next few weeks will have variety in design.

    Thanks anyway, Chris, for your hard work and commitment, :)

    Cheers,
    Michiel

    I’m pretty fed up with the computers showing “recent work” too. The stickers are also something everyone has, and everyone can do. I’m really interested in how web design will evolve from now on. In fashion business old stuff always comes back but in web design now we see both retro and futuristic design. What’s next?

  5. Very true about the Macbooks and iPhones etc previewing ‘folio work, they all look really good but are seen all over the place now… I bet half the people who use them on their own websites don’t even own them ;)

    I saw the Envato website a couple of weeks back and was really impressed with the redesign, it looks awesome!

    In my opinion, Envato is just a rip off of the Fluid Theme by Meta Lab Design (as much as I don’t like them or their style) as well as countless other sites using the transparent containers on an interesting background.

    SixCentral is the most original in this set in my opinion.

    I love the remix creative…really clean but still very interesting…cool! thanx for the inspiration!

  11. You have great taste in sites! Yes, there’s a similar grid theme, but they are SO effective because they focus the viewer while still looking great. I love it. I’m definitely subscribing to your blog.
