I've searched the web for some of the most creative and unique web design designs to inspire you to create an awesome blog or website of your own. Check out my favorite picks from around the web:
Bagigia: This is probably one of the most creative websites out there. Not only does the site feature parallax design, it's page navigation is completely unique and interactive. You can navigate the page by scrolling with your cursor, using the circle navigation panel on the bottom right hand side, or dragging the mock "zipper" along the bottom of the page. As you transition from page to page you get to experience the unique features of the Bagigia products, it's truly a unique and interactive experience.
IndoFolio: What I love about this page is it's unique parallax design that involves horizontal scrolling. As you transition between pages you find that the background picture transforms and moves with you making page navigation fun and exciting.
Thibaud: This awesome portfolio design is one of my favorites because it allows users to select their preferred method of site navigation. You can alter and change the way that you navigate the portfolio by selecting various styles at the bottom of the screen.
Dulla: I love the animation and hand drawn illustrations featured on this site. The landing page is so creative, it draws users in and makes them want to learn what the site is all about.
Organic Grid:This landing page is so colorful and fun. I love using the navigation elements to experience new and different artists.
The Kennedys: I just think this landing page looks SUPER cool. I love all of the flashing colors and amazing illustrations. I feel like I could just stare at this page for hours upon hours.
VlogIt: I absolutely love the navigation on this site, it's so much fun to watch the images change on the site and navigate through this interesting circular panel.
Ray's Lab: I love how colorful the artwork is on this landing page. Simply because of its colorful layout and design, I'm intrigued to learn more about the site.
Tori's Eye: I love the animated background on this site, and how the site continues to change and adapt to your actions and movements.

It seems like everyday a new and innovative social network is popping up. I become totally entranced by each and every APP or website that offers the ability for me to connect with the world across the internet. Do you ever feel the same?
The use of social icons on your website or blog can really be advantageous to attracting new customers and readers. In addition, adding social icons to your portfolio allows you to reach a wider range of people. Each social network tends to reach a different type of audience and if you can tap into each of those different groups of people you will dramatically increase the reach and distribution of your content.
There are so many different ways to get social, but having icons for your readers to click through on your blog or website is one of the easiest ways to connect. I've selected a few of my favorites from Creative Market to help you start getting social:
