    For web design learning and teaching purposes, I am trying to come up with a list of well-designed sites (visually and/or ease of use).

    I just wanted to get some opinions on sites you think are well designed.

    Please post some hyperlinks!

    Thanks :mac:

    apple.com =)

    i would go to www.internettinyawards.com and browse the best flashdesigns.
    It also dedpends what kind of design you looking for? flash & interactive?
    Or are you focussing on layouts mainly?

    This website is full of sites, which are amazing in design. The website collects sites, which use CSS in their design I do believe.

    For those that like to use CSS (which everyone should these days) check out www.csszengarden.com and www.cssvault.com

    In Zen Garden, if you click the other designs links, its the same content, but the css templates have changed.

    To me, the simplest look is usually the best.

    A personal favorite of mine has always been http://2advanced.com . They've been around for a few years and I'm sure many folks here have heard of them... Their portfolio is very impressive.

    By far my favorite is www.favoritewebsiteawards.com I spend hours there. I'm currently designing a site that will hopefully make the list.

    personally, i'm just not a fan of all singing all dancing flash sites.

    Principle reason is that they are irrelevant to the content and a hinderence to getting at the content.

    The typical example I mean is that you hit the front page of a site. You get a scrolling bar for a 5 to 10 seconds as the animation loads. When the flash starts you get the all singing all dancing intro of moving objects graphics morfing about and looking cool.

    Finally find the "Skip Intro" button. I've lost upto 10 seconds just waiting to be able to skip past this bit.

    Then you get another 5 to 10 seconds while the main page loads and dances about.

    Find the button your looking for, another 10 seconds waiting on the animation. and again, and again.

    To me, it just gets in the way and its a constant 'waiting on the animation' rather than getting to the stuff you really want.


    Second thing i find that gripes me. Flash sites are often small. The buttons are small, the text is small. the content opens in a small text box which you have to constantly scroll though. There often is not a simple way to scale up the text so you can read it easily.


    Dont get me wrong, there are some great sites out there which have flash content, but more often than not, i just find it frustrating.



    To me, and i stress this is personal, a good site needs to be:

    Relevant
    Have a simple method of mavigation
    Clean crisp graphics
    Quick
    Scaleable so that fonts can be enlarged to suit users




    http://www.stopdesign.com

    is a good example of the type of site I like.

    but again, its always personal

    One of the sites I quite like is:

    http://www.smackerel.net/black_white_01.html

    It was the inspiration for my recent redesign at my own website:
