Take a look at the web sites that people use.
If you want a desing contest, then that's a different sort of "best design" test. I've seen these "best of the web" contests and many end up being an art majors gallery.
Google may not win a design contest on their looks, but billions served...
hi. i was wondering if you have a favorite site that lists something like their top 100 or top 20 websites as judged by design? of course, i sometimes just do a random search for such sites but it's always a hit and miss thing. looking at good examples is, of course, a good way to get a sense of what's considered good and to find examples for one's own design.
so if you know of a site or sites that you like, would you post them for us all? thanks for any suggestions you might have
