Large CSS Designs in 2008

online13 Comments

The new trend with web design is that a lot of designers are starting to use the large background technique and utilizing Javascript frameworks (such as jQuery and MooTools) to enhance the user experience. I’m also starting to see a lot of designers mix flash with CSS. Is this something we can expect to see more of in 2009?

    Another one like these is one I did recently.

    Hey Jeremy, I really like what you’ve done here…. say goodbye to 800×600 resolution!

  3. Arthur Brown

    Wow these designs are great. I like the larger layouts hopefully we will indeed see the end of the 800×600 resolution.

  4. Rahul

    Oh yes, 800 * 600 is far gone now. As a designer, I’ve also opted for 1024 screen resolution now.

    Speaking of mixing Flash and CSS, have you seen Meomi? I think this is a really neat (and cute!!) way to add Flash in order to, well, add some flash to the site w/o it being annoying.

    @LaurenMarie – Creative Curio: Thanks… I like how this isn’t overdoing it with flash.. great example!

  7. Desiztech

    Nice post man! I have seen the fish one before…really well designed and unique

    well, there are a lot of people and companies that still use 800 x 600 as default. we can’t ignore them. once again, target public must be analised before everything.

    I love the fish one. It’s simple but extremely well done, an old time favorite!
