Inspiration: These websites are not black

Being a designer means pushing the boundaries, not always staying with the norm. These websites do just that, instead of just defaulting to black, they use a variety of different textures, colors, glows and gradients. This is an inspiration that shows you have other options when making a dark website, rather than using just black. These websites are not black.

I’m sure there are more that I have missed, if you find some that qualify as being “not black” let me know by putting a link in the comments below. Thanks.

    There are many great racing flats available for below $30, but be careful. Unless you’re a very efficient runner utilized to operating in minimal shoes you could be setting yourself up for an injury with them. Greatest bet – check out a local running shop and have them recommend a shoe based on your footstrike. Most running stores will have shoes on clearance that they offer at deep discounts.

    I actually am not a fan of the Google Keywords and phrases software. Possibly I’m just silly, but I don’t truly trust a instrument just handing me out key terms to invest my cash on, even if it does involve statistics. I would rather performing my own screening and research. The much more I ponder these items myself, the much more concepts I’ll basically formulate on my own. The instrument just helps make points too simple and stimulate me to get reckless with the budget.
