I got a cool web idea that I’m starting really soon and I need to invest significant development time to get it up and running. I got no problem with that… I build systems for a living. However, one area I’m admittedly unskilled in is web design. I can’t design a pretty site to save my life!
Since this project is to be up and running almost immediately, I can’t afford to create really pretty web designs by myself. So where do I turn to? Google of course! A quick query or two later I was on the pages of Free Website Templates.
I immediately fell in love with this awesome resource! Here are some reasons why:
- The templates are themed. This means you can get instant previews and download of web designs for everything from fire rescue squads to rock bands!
- Almost all the web designs listed there are XHTML compliant; a big plus in my books! The rare few that aren’t need only minor modifications to be compliant
- A large majority of the designs are of commercial quality if you ask me; yet they are provided for free
So now I know where to head first whenever I need a themed web design. Too bad there’s no search interface for Free Website Templates; this would definitely improve what’s an almost perfect web design resource.
