Examples of Well Designed Pages on the Web: The BEST, a Network of Inspiring Sites

Examples of Well Designed Pages on the Web: The BEST, a Network of Inspiring Sites | The Web Design Guide and Showcase | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Jeremy Mitchell, an art director, web designer & filmmaker, is also the curator of a small network of website collections that showcase the best examples of *about pages*, *product web sites* and *agency sites*: The Best Network.


Each site is a visual gallery of real-world examples of web pages fitting the site theme and organized across a number of relevant (though not always so coherent) categories.


A great example of non-commercial content curation, done for the purpose of creating a useful public reference as well as a high-value piece of content boosting the credibility and reputation of the author.


Free to use.

A Curated Visual Search Engine for Design Inspiration: Niice | The Web Design Guide and Showcase | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Niice is a new search engine that specializes in retrieving high-quality images from a curated set of design sites which include for now BehanceIllustration ageDesignspirationSiteInspire & Fonts In Use.


Niice can be used as a visual trigger to find interesting and inspiring visuals on just about any theme or topic. 


The curated nature of its sources and of the images allowed into the index guarantees that your focus area will always be filled by visually interesting ideas.


I tried a few simple searches, and was quite inspired by the quality of the results. I'd say truly inspiring.
