  • Nice collection of web design inspiration! I have noticed that images sized to the full width of the browser window are also being really popular. Can you provide any links that explain the best practices to pull this off without sacrificing quick load time and browser compatibility issues? Thanks!

  • I have seen an increasing trend in using people from a web designers perspective for a while now – very effective.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Adam,

    I’ve been WANTING to write a tutorial on this subject. It’s a problem that’s currently still needing a good, non-hacky, standardized solution.

    Here’s some links, but this isn’t comprehensive:

  • I love this article – it’s so true that photos of people help to draw in the attention of others. I guess we are all fascinated by faces/people to some extent. I particularly like example No 6 by Scotch & Soda and No 21 by Mahedine Yahia – great stuff!

  • Ron Paul
