Need Web design ideas for your sites? There are a number of resources around that showcase what they feel are the best real website designs they encounter out there in the wild. Among them, Httpster is my favorite.

That’s because the real world site designs you’ll find on Httpster typically have a minimalist aesthetic, something that has long appealed to me both visually and functionally—they’re easier to maintain and fiddle with.

Another reason: The sites they feature are often commercial. They’re actually put to work, in other words, not some high-concept, edgy creation by some artsty-fartsy designer just showing off with little regard if the design is actually useful or not. You know, the gorgeous but useless lot. You won’t see many of those, if at all, at Httpster.
