    Great list! I am re-designing my portfolio site right now and although it’s close to being done, this list is certainly good for inspiration, and to see what else is out there.

  2. August 4, 2008

    All fantastic site – no doubt about it. You’ve done really well compiling this amazing list.

    However, it would be really amazing to see some lesser known sites. I’ll bet that almost every designer that sees this article will recognize 90% of these designs. While this isn’t a bad thing – because the sites are all amazingly-well designed – it would be great to have something new in the mix.

    But again, great work!

  3. August 4, 2008

    Good. I’m glad it can help.

    I can’t argue with that. Thanks for your feedback.

  4. Joost Canters
    August 4, 2008

    They’re all beautiful, but then again, they all look a bit alike.

  5. August 4, 2008

    thanks for the link up! Glad you like my work 🙂

  6. August 4, 2008


  7. August 4, 2008

    Brilliant stuff, its strange being featured among so many designers that I admire. I think my favourite has to be “Deaxon” – I just love that site. Nice stuff!

  8. August 4, 2008

    Nice list of portfolios.

    There is too many to pick a favorite from.

  9. August 4, 2008

    thx 4 add my page! Nice overview!

  10. August 4, 2008

    Great post! Each one of these sites is incredible… you must’ve spent ages finding them all.

  11. August 4, 2008

    Nice list! The Things We Make is one of my favs… A few new ones here that I will have to check out! 🙂

  12. August 4, 2008

    this list seems to be only taking visual design in consideration, not code strength, validity and accessibility.
    Quote:”I think my favourite has to be “Deaxon” – I just love that site. ”

    Try increasing the font size in your browser preferences by 2 points. You’ll see that the design is broken and the site unusable. That should be taken in consideration when making these lists. If a site design is broken with a 2 points bigger font size, it means it is poorly coded, difficult to update and manage, and will probably be unusable on mobile phones or text-only web devices.
    These are issues that any web designer should be concerned with.

  13. August 4, 2008

    Hi, thanks for the fantastic and full list!

  14. August 4, 2008

    A good beginning place for students building digital portfolios.

  15. August 4, 2008

    @sebastien – I see what you’re saying, but It doesn’t change my opinion. I still love it. What’s wrong with just liking something because it looks good anyway?

  16. August 4, 2008

    Very nice list here. Lot’s of inspiring ideas.

  17. August 4, 2008

    Hey, thanks for including my portfolio in this list of awesome sites. It’s quite an honor!

  18. August 4, 2008

    Excellent list of portfolios. It’s amazing the amount of creativity there: so many portfolios, yet each is individual!

    Thanks for gathering these sites in one place.

  19. Steven Snell
    August 4, 2008

    I don’t see how you can say they all look alike. Some are artistic using illustrations, some are minimal (two very different styles), some are light, some are dark, some use tons of images, some don’t use any.

    You’re right, the sites were chosen almost exclusively based on looks. My purpose with the post was to provide some design inspiration, not code inspiration. Looking at it again, maybe the post title wasn’t as clear as it could have been. If a site looks great but has some coding issues, the coding can be fixed/changed. You can still achieve the same look with better coding. My point was not to put these sites on a pedestal to say that they’re all perfect.

    August 4, 2008

    nice list, but this should really be called 101 awesome blog sites, since pretty much all have the same blog style layout…

  21. August 4, 2008

    Thanks for mentioning us on this list, awesome company to be in!

    @sebastien – I totally agree with your point on font resizing. I went back and tested our home page and it does indeed withstand the two size change in Safari. That is one thing I always preach to our team.

    As for conformity, I definitely don’t think all of these sites look familiar. Of course there are a few UI standards to follow but outside of that, there is quite a mix of designs here.


  22. August 4, 2008

    Fantastic list and an inspiration. I intend to one day design something that will make it onto a similar list.

  23. August 4, 2008

    very nice list thanks for putting it together.

    Nice list.

    @Sebastian, I agree – it would be nice if everyone coded to take the little (but important) things into account but it is also good to see people pushing blog templates in new directions to avoid them all looking the same. As Steven Snell put, you can always improve the code later on, which is easier than improving a design..

  31. August 7, 2008

    Great list. Hope one day my portfolio will make it to the top 102! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Indispensable list– I have to say, as one of those rare designers who values code strength as well as design aesthetic, I have to agree with Sebasiten’s comment. Though, as a user, I sort of expect aesthetic to be sacrificed when increasing font size. Well done!!

    Ok, these all look the same and they are not awesome portfolio sites. They have zero individuality and lack concept. If you want to see samples of good portfolio work then go to digitalthread.com or designcharts.com, these websites have really good portfolio samples and very successful design websites.

    A lot of these look like templates. Some good creativity as far as color composition and content. But, the layouts on most are so similar, it’s hard to see any major, creative differences between them. I included a link to just one of the many i have bookmarked that has caught my eye over the years of browsing. It’s definitely a unique site. Enjoy & good luck!

  150. July 23, 2010

    I have to admit, a lot of these sites look really similar. So many of them use that same old web 2.0 look… I call it the Neapolitan ice cream look. Header, content, footer in 3 different colors, usually dark to light from top to bottom separated by clean lines and sparse content. Not all of them, mind you. But if I scroll down quickly, I definitely see a pattern. Web standards have dealt a blow to creativity.

  151. August 1, 2010

    Great roundup guys! but I like http://www.eatablegraphics.com/ its better.

    @sebastien you said it wrong, it should be something a web developer should be more concerned with. These are greatly designed sites. Whats the use of a well coded website if the interface looks horrible. Take into concideration the times, ingaging the viewer. Your focusing more on the minority who use screen readers when reality is this is a business. Design is key, well over proper coding, even though proper coding is prefered, design is the essence of a successful “anything” function becomes secondary atleast from an american industry perspective.

    Great list – saves clicking round all the web design galleries to look for inspiration. The reason I’ve bookmarked this page is that apart from the one standard of great design, the styles are so varied – I’m already sick of the latest fad of dark and moody backgrounds. Don’t get me wrong, it has its place, but when you see so many galleries full of them it does get a bit monotonous. Great variety, great design. Thanks

  191. Thanks for your good website and for sharing your experiences.

    Thank you SOOOO much for this resource!
