One Trick Pony
.zombo
Zombo.com does only one thing but does it extremely well; it offers you everything. It has too much negative space but it doesn't really matter because "You can do anything at Zombo.com." Don't forget to have your audio up when visiting this site.

Everything Plus the Kitchen Sink
teachersxpress

TeacherXpress has taken the exact opposite approach from the zombo.com and has too much content crammed onto the webpage. The links to other areas are better but the main page may be TMI (too much information) for some teachers looking for educational  resources.

Buttons Gone Wild
haiti-news
Almost all webpages use buttons to link to other areas. But in the case of Haiti News Network the web designer has turned the website into a buttonfest. While the design is loud and cluttered, it certainly is colorful.

Longest Website?
havenworks-website
Havenworks.com provides content related to politics, social issues, and commentary. Its claim to fame is that it has appeared on several lists for "Worst Websites." This website is long---literally. You'll find an almost bottomless pit of content as you scroll down.

Graphic Design Schools and Web Creativity
As you have seen, anyone can create a website but not everyone can design a website properly. In order to do that you'll need inherent aesthetic talent and the proper education regarding website design principles.

Graphic design colleges offer a wealth of career training and can help you understand the basics of what you need to know about web design. Check with your local graphic design schools to see what courses are available.
