Line25 Sites of the Week for May 22nd 2009

Read the full post

The Line25 Sites of the Week is a weekly roundup of the most outstanding website designs. In this week’s collection, we have designs from Tyler Finck, Nine Lion, Crush + Lovely, CTL and Brian Burns.



Tyler Finck features a nifty Javascript animated navigation effect which coupled with the neat illustrated interface makes a very cool site design.

Nine Lion

Nine Lion Design

A bunch of colourful vector illustrations and a mix of wood textures makes the Nine Lion site a very creative design portfolio.

Crush + Lovely

Crush + Lovely

The header and footer of the Crush + Lovely site has a sweet watercolour style texture that gives a tactile feel to the whole site design.


CTL Online

The flowing ribbons on the CTL site draw you right into the website, particularly with the clever blurring that adds a varied depth of field.

Brian Burns

Brian Burns

The structured grid layout of Brian Burns’ website makes a refreshing design, with a funky pattern overlay on the image rollovers.

    Really like the java animation effect of Tyler Finck. Great original website!

  2. I really like the depth of field effect of the CTL website – cool effect.

  3. Nice collection Chris. I just noticed/realized one thing though, it looks to me that Nine Lion was the site that inspired the new design of the well known Outlaw Design Blog ( , may be it’s just me, just thought I’d share.

    P.S. You really need to add the email notification option mate :)

  4. Or Nine Lion got inspired by ODB? :eek:

  5. Wow, that first one is stunning! That’s the way jQuery should be used. Thumbs up!

    The Crush + Lovely website is great. It’s amazing what they did with their h2s – did you notice? They’re all part of one single image.

    I don’t think I’ve seen this done before. Is it quite an original approach or did I just not know about it?
