I just couldn’t help making this post without picking a site that was built on our Zelle theme. It looks very much like Linda’s, using a one-page layout and following the same structure. VASoft is very friendly and colorful, has video ribbons (the header itself is a video), and a clean appearance overall.

The only difference between these two sites is that Tinkering Monkey is multi-page. The rest is just (almost) the same. The wood-tinkering guys here have larger visuals in the portfolio and larger sections overall.

You can clearly notice that this is the website of an illustrator. Original, catchy, lively, and colorful… and, most of all, creative. It has a simple grid-like portfolio and a neat design, but the idea/theme is great. This site is perfect example of how white space can make your site eye-catchy.
