Design Focus

Friday Focus #40

Here we are with week number 40, a little bit later than usual on your favorite night of the week – Friday. It was a good week for us, with quite a few really good articles, that you should probably consider looking through if you haven’t yet. Alright, enough chit chat, it’s time to kick off week 4-0.

Sites of the Week

You may remember that when GoPlan first launched, we featured them here on Friday Focus. The old design was white, with a lot of pastel color choices. The recent redesign took the darker route, but it still looks fairly nice.

Next up is Miingle, a one page, extremely vibrant design for a small advertising network. I think it is a very clean design, and perfect for the purpose of the site.


There was a rather small pool once again this week, leading up to a rather small Friday Focus. Hopefully we can come back big next week. Remember, if you want to get your site noticed and possibly featured here, please show it off in the forums!

    Loving both designs. The logo use in mingle is a nice touch. Thank you for pointing out the new HTML elements. I hope they do go through because that would make life so much better. I’m so bored of divs.

    Perhaps it’s my narrow-sightedness due to blogs being my only real experience with web design, but HTML 5 seems to add a few structures and tags that would be beneficial to a blog design and interactive content. Other than that I couldn’t find anything terribly interesting or useful.

    Not sure what I was expecting in the first place for a standards update.
