The borders don't work and distract from the real content. This is just messy from a design perspective and pardon the pun but it's very rough around the edges.

Another good example that css-driven design can be more than just square boxes. I welcome anytjing else than the XXXXXth overshadowed 3 square column design. Rather start to think that Joos has trouble viewing pages correctly (cfr his other negative comments)
Simple design that works well iin several browsers (FF1, IE6, Amaya) Nice job...Si non e ben'fatto, e ben'trovato.

I test in all browsers at STANDARD settings mac and pc - no tweaking. This is what the average person sees and not a designers view. I too welcome anything other than the cloned stuff but this site is following the current torn edges trend andI don't think it's a good example.

I like the "paint" theme used on this one, but I'll have to agree with Joos, they are rather distracting. Perhaps they would have popped out if used on 2 or 3 sides of the content. Nice color pallette.

This site is not an information site (content oriented), but a design agency site, so I don't see the "distracting from the content" as a problem. I like it and I don't have problems with my browser (IE6 win = standard user)
