21 High-Impact Designs

I’ve been looking-through design galleries again…

Today’s design roundup, 21 High-Impact Designs, will cover highly visual designs that really grab your attention as soon as they load. As usual, they’re the kind of really cool designs that you can just sit and look at for 15 minutes.

Okay, are you ready for the designs?

Put on your 3D-glasses and let’s continue.

    Cool! What do you reckon will the next big thing in web design trends? I’m noticing a movement toward super-simplicity in many blogs…

    I’m not sure. While simplicity is nice, I really like the look of some of the less-simple blogs. I like simplicity, but you don’t need to go so far as to have an Apple-like all-white page.

    The first and second are the best, both great looking and quite usable. The key is in getting the design in such way that you can put a lot of content without cluttering the space, but in the same time, giving users easy access to everything.Easier said than done :) – Peconi – http://needToKnowBlog.com/

    “Some of them really jump out at you” — That’s sort of the point. :D

    Glad you all like the list.

    You have a wonderful list of high quality site designs, but some of theme are missing from tinypic image hosting?

      So they are. They do that now and then. Luckily I still have the originals somewhere. I'll upload them to my server, where I host images on my newer posts, sometime soon hopefully.

      Thanks for pointing it out.
