Great compilation! These are some really talented designers

#12 Posted by Russell Bishop (06.05.09 at 00:09 )

Gosh, I’m so flattered to be included! Thanks so much WDH!

Most of these have hierarchy problems, unnecessary use of textures and graphics, this list is a good source for design intoxication, some of them looks like built over very popular tutorials on the web which looks very banal.

Some of the ones that give the visitors what they want to see is Sid Lee & Just Dot. You know what I mean, the point is let’s see the work first and then give us some info about what you eat, what’s your twitter or your recommended books and stuff.

Portfolio sites should be separate from personal blogs.

thank you for the include, its very flattering to be included in a list that has so many amazing sites in it :)

#15 Posted by Ashely Adams (06.05.09 at 10:29 )

A very interesting list, indeed. It was a stimulating experience going through all those beautiful (and not-so-beautiful) portfolios. The list, I’m not ashamed to say, is brimming with ideas that will be used in many future portfolios.

Thanks for the compilation.

I love the smooth, simple designs. Black backgrounds are hard to pull off, but some of the above do them well. I like Sid’s large image and side nav.

#17 Posted by Pedr (07.05.09 at 14:23 )

Nice to see you keeping up with the blog posts!
Nice compilation! Great to see some WDF members here!

#18 Posted by ley (07.05.09 at 19:48 )

#19 Posted by Brad (08.05.09 at 11:42 )

#20 Posted by Rob Hawkes (10.05.09 at 19:45 )

Some excellent examples of web design there. I’m proud to be considered part of that list. Thank you.

#21 Posted by pixeldope (11.05.09 at 08:05 )

great resouce thanks a lot for sharing

#22 Posted by abe (11.05.09 at 08:35 )

love the cee graphics one – don’t see many diagonals in web design

#23 Posted by jesome (17.05.09 at 20:58 )

wow really nice!

#24 Posted by Pr0_dEsIgn (18.05.09 at 16:00 )

Nice Variety of Designs! Great way to get ideas for new projects. I often see designers get stuck in a rut with a single design they really like and then pound it into the ground.

#25 Posted by xqlusive (19.05.09 at 20:01 )

awesome collection

#26 Posted by mercedes (22.07.09 at 22:26 )

#28 Posted by interior design classes online (17.01.10 at 04:58 )

That 47 media portfolio website is really slick. Nice collection of designs, thanks!

#29 Posted by robincox (11.02.10 at 13:41 )

I love websites designed after nature scenes like the Pojeta site (whether it be illustrated or photographed). I like this one http://evacox.se what do you all think?
