So, my wife told me that my site design was boring. Yeah, she was right. I am no designer. I just don't have that gene. But, during my work on Wordcraft, I came across some cool places to find designs that are relased under Open Source licenses.
Open Designs - This is arguably the the prettiest of the three. The search, however, is painfully slow because all results return on one page. I guess if you can wait, this is a plus as browsing is easier. Also, you can pick multiple colors and choose by license. They only list XHTML templates (at least as search options). That could be a turn off if you like HTML 4 like me.
Open Web Design - The site itself could use a design overhaul. But, the content is good. The search lets you choose primary and secondary color, a unique feature among these sites. Thumbnails are a bit small though.
Open Source Web Design - Their search is not as powerful as the others, but it does return very fast. The thumbnails are a nice size.
You will find the same content on all three sometimes. But, it comes down to browsing and searching.
I found my new design at one of those. Not sure which, I looked at a lot of them. I did not use the template's HTML exactly as I like HTML 4.0 and wanted a different sidebar than the original author. But, the design is the hard part. So, thanks for Deep Red.
