Introducing nclud™ a creative web design agency

So after a long time of wanting to open my very own web design agency, my friend Martin and I have decided to take the plunge. Late last December we discussed the possibility and decided then and there to go for it. Fast Forward to a few months later and here we are, happy to announce the launch of our new venture nclud™ a creative web design agency.

What does this mean for CSS Beauty? It means I will eventually have less and less time to maintain it. I don't want to see the site die, and it's for that reason I will be asking for help... My plans are to get more of the community involved to help maintain the site. That is if you are willing to do so!

So stay tuned, and wish us luck!

and please, don't hesitate to stop by and say hello!.

Also, if you happen to be attending the SXSW conference in Austin this year, shoot me an email!, maybe we can hook up for some cold beers.

Cheers!

This is the only CSS showcase that still feels relevant in my opinion.

That is, I believe, purely down to the fact that just one person (and a person with a real eye for quality, relevance and consistency) is responsible for selecting sites to showcase.

If you open selection up to a few volunteers you will lose that consistency, and CSS Beauty will turn into as bad a mess as CSS Vault, the once-great-but-now-pants Stylegala, and will be no different (aside from the resources section you have) from any other two-bit showcase site (of which there are too many).

I'd prefer it if you yourself picked just one site a month rather than a team picking twenty per month. Don't let this site become irrelevant like all the other showcases.

Anyway, good luck with the new venture... and congrats.

I agree with Colly - I'd hate to see this site go the same way as some of the other showcase sites.

I'm going to echo what the other's have said. CSS Beauty is a great resource for inspiration as you clearly have a good eye for design.

Opening up the posting to several people will likely bring the quality of the showcased websites down.

However, good luck with what you do & with nclud!

Point well taken!, I am definitely not going to let that happen guys! trust me on that, even if that means I have to continue to do things the way I've been doing it since the start.

There are other sections of the site which can be opened to the public, forum for instance, and maybe get some help in the job listing section!

Thank you guys for the good words!

Good Luck to you.

All ways enjoy getting the CSSB feeds. Both inspiring and motivating + all the handy tools and titbits. I hope that CSSB continues to prosper.

Your urls aren't working. Add the www and it will be good.

GravatarOn March 6, 2007 11:57 AM Alex Giron said:

I've gone ahead and added the www, although everything seemed to work for me just fine. Maybe a dns issue.

I really prefer to see this site change towards a positive direction, no doubt about that! But, it still has to be the great resource for CSS learner.

I really wish U good luck for your new approach!!

Good Luck, "nclud" !!

As a contributor to the CSSBeauty news feed, I can guarantee this site would go to crap if "I" chose the designs. Every website would have dark backgrounds with giant georgia font and trebuchet body text (hey, that's just my personal taste). Thank goodness for great designers like Alex to pick out only the best :)

Well balanced layout, user-friendly navigation, strong portfolio... if I would a client, not a web designer, I would consider NCLUD's services... :)

Best wishes,
Respiro

Agree with Colly too.
Sites like this are what they are because their original authors, if this change maybe the site won't be the same again.

By the way good luck with your company!
