    Hi,

    I have a client design project which has had my first 2 designs rejected!
    They want a design for a vacation based web site in web 2.0 style.

    So i need to supply them with some good examples so do you have any favorite web 2.0 sites? they dont need to be related to vacations ... just web 2.0 ....

    any suggestions of some nice sites? :confused:

    There's an actual magazine by them that is really good, their forums are also pretty good.

    I've been in that same boat, so before I even get to work on my "homemade" designs I send them a slew of site demo's from sites like elegantthemes.com, ithemes.com, etc.

    I usually have them choose one of those so I can get started without having to spend hours on a design that I think rocks, only to find out they hate it.

    A lot of times I also ask clients to give me a list of other similar sites they like before hand. Some of the crap they like surprises me.

    One client was stone-cold set on having music play in the background of his site automatically and wanted the whole site covered with sparkling animated gif's.

    Even though I convinced him this was a horrible idea, he was adamant about it and so got his way...

    Needless to say that site is doing NO business for him...
