One of our favorite sources for inspiration and information is Smashing Magazine. Earlier this week Matt showed me an article of theirs that listed some great merchant sites. Among the list, I felt like there was one stand out, Chicago L-Shirts. I love how they use a dominant background image to anchor the design of the site. It’s not flash, and despite the size and sharpness of the background photography, the pages load quickly.
Our first response was, who could we do something like this for? It’s a realistic and undeniably cool web solution for the right client.
