    Heya,

    I launched a website to showcase a collection of awesome stuffs made with pure CSS recently.

    (i dont think i am allowed to post links, so the url is css-creations dot com. if i am doing anything wrong then please let me know :))

    Share your feedbacks so that i can improve it further.

    Submissions are also welcome!

    Regards

    It's ok, the homepage design is pretty simple and lifeless - try making it more alive and colourfoul without sacrificing the User Experience :)

    Simplicity is always cool but as crisitanraiber said your homepage is too simple. I suggest you to take a look at works of Orman Clark. He's like the king of minimalistic gallery and portfolio website design! :)

    I seriously think the site is good. I don't mind the simplicity of the homepage. Look at Google

    Nice concept! I'd suggest implementing tags as you get more content, so there is a way to choose categories for specific stuff. i.e. text effects, UI elements, etc.

    Also, maybe add some "other content you may like" functionality at the bottom of posts to improve pages per visit by linking to related posts.

    Me think so [seriously]. I kinda like it too. All you need is a nice logo with it. Mind if I ask, is this a custom template?

    @joeyblogz thank you for the ideas, i'll be implementing them asap.

    @fayans i'll take care of the logo. about the template, its not custom. its from twitter's bootstrap framework.

    I think its great, not bombarded with anything annoying, its easy on the eyes, and not confusing at all.

    Kind of looks like twitter lol, nothing wrong with that.

    Nice work.
