graphic & web design, art and photography
Today's pick is the "home planet" of a guy named Serge Danyshevsky - featuring super-stylish graphics throughout and a navigation scheme that makes total sense. This showcase of art, photography, and design is unique and engaging and the assortment of quality content presented here is extensive. I really enjoyed his photography section - a category called "expression" features a number of different "stories", each one a series portraying several emotions of a single subject through varied facial expressions. Other categories found in the photography section include landscapes, still life, people and animals. The other sections of the site are also impressive but I can only describe so much here - go check this site out and take your time - it's quite enjoyable!
Weblog Wannabe 4/26/00 Description:
trying hard to be like yours
Today's winner comes from a 26 year old in Indonesia who is saying more about the web than she might even realize. She tells us "I'll remain a wannabe because I don't really have what it takes to be a real one", referring to her wanting to be a web celebrity. "I'm not cool enough to befriend any of the web hot shots (and get a link on their side bar)" - Yep! - she really says what a lot of people are thinking about. Well, I got news for ya, Firda - forget the link on somebody's sidebar and just be yourself... we're all a bunch of wannabes, including the ones you call celebrities! Your bright colored site and that cute little duck say there's a real honest person behind the site with a lot of personality who has a flair for design. I've noticed lately that your entries are starting to become more about interesting sites out there instead of the typical dribble about who links to you, etc., though you're still doing a little too much of that to be like the others. While you sit there saying you're a wannabe, others are looking at your site and saying I wannabe like Firda...count on it!

world wide web stimulus: the best designed sites collected rated and cross-referenced, for creatives, developers, marketers and enthusiasts
"It can be difficult to know where to look to see the best sites out there." I agree. Today's winning site presents an excellent collection of "the best designed sites" - many listings include high-quality screenshots and the producer's judgment as to what "best designed" means is right on the money! The neatly organized database currently includes over 1000 sites and includes a user rating system and a wonderful interface for finding exactly what you're after, whether you prefer to browse or search. An inspirational portal in its "live beta test phase", this site, in a word, is sweet. Go for it!
