    I'm starting to notice that a lot of these designs look the same.

    My thought is that professional looks clean, and clean follows a familiar formula. They each have their own tweaks to make it theirs, but by and large the style is the same.

    I like Finch. I don't like the Student's Guide to Web Design. It has ugly, boring colors, and it reminds me of a WordPress standard theme (Not that that's a bad thing, just looks ordinary).

      Here's the ultimate question though Traver; could you have done any better?

        There are many similarity in web designs these days, look at many WordPress theme, most have a big slide or video and then under it three , two or one column layout. I think nice design goes to detail and how they treat or bring in small details, I like the Student Guide.
        The pixel rules on the left and right is a differentiators point.

      Did you actually look at the sites, or just the thumbnails, I did noticed that in thumbnail form they looked similar..

      In the browser they look very distinct and behave very differently from one another, I feel like you forgot to actually look at them before posting your comment.

    I could have. :) Sites are becoming depressingly homogenous. I love making vibrant, engaging sites for my clients.

    I specially liked Student's guide. What a nice presentation of colors, font and background. Even Loft's design is very good.
