CSS Web Design Galleries

inspirational CSS galleriesAs a Web Designer, I occasionally run into creative blocks that sometimes nag me for hours. Anybody in a creative profession is sure to have experienced similar frustrations. Expecting to be creative 24/7 is a mighty difficult and exhausting task. Luckily there are plenty of avenues for inspiration available online. Some are better than others, and there are certain galleries that are particular to certain types of designs. So look around a little and get inspired.

Below is a CSS gallery list that will help unblock your creativity. This is by no means a complete list of galleries, but does include some of the best CSS galleries out there. These online galleries are also a great way to get back links to your site. Most of them accept original web design submissions. So if you feel your latest website design deserves more attention or you simply want to show off your CSS skills, by all means submit to some of these galleries. The amounts of traffic some of these galleries get are quite impressive, so take advantage of their free submission opportunities. Many of these sites receive a large number of submissions per day; so don’t expect a review right away.

The information provided below is accurate as of November 26, 2010. The “PR” column represents Google PR Ranking, and the “Alexa” column represents the Alexa Traffic Ranking for each site. The list of CSS galleries is organized according to Alexa rankings. If you have any additional suggestion or recommendations for this list, please feel free to contact Dave with details.

* Article Updated – Shortly after creating this article, I discovered another chunk of CSS galleries. The total in the following chart now exceeds 150, but for continuity purposes I have left the article title untouched. To distinguish these revisions from the original websites, the additions have red PR and Alexa rankings. The rankings for these additions are accurate as of November 29, 2010.
