80+ Hand-Picked Beautiful and Original Blogger Designs

Customizing our Blogger blogs is now easier than ever. Aside from the hundreds of pre-made templates available for us to simply upload to our sites, there are innumerable tutorials helping us design more beautiful and interesting sites. Yet some Blogger users look beyond these simpler design features to construct stunning original Blogger designs.

Over at We Love Blogger, you can find a daily showcase of inspiring Blogger-based designs. Here are the cream of the crop: more than 80 Blogger-powered blogs of unusual design or outstanding quality, provided as a feast of inspiration for your own projects.

While sadly Antonio Lupetti no longer uses Blogger as his publishing platform, Woork is still online and is a wonderful example of how Blogger may be utilized for professional, functional designs. (You may like to check out the new WoorkUp site to see the updated version of this infamous site).

Another stunning design by Amuki.



This is a Blogger design I created for my son, which is loosely based on the DVD menu screen for Quantum of Solace. Custom fonts are used in the sidebar and top--menu (provided by Kernest.com), while almost all areas have a mouseover effect.

My personal site, and truly an experiment in the possibilities of Blogger-design! As I begin to upload new posts, you'll notice each post will be presented in a completely different style (background, layout, fonts... everything!). It is difficult to maintain, but as I try out new things I'll be sure to post about them here!

Opus Independents

This last example is truly my favorite! The design is flash-based (and so not hosted by Blogger's servers) yet the core content (news, NowThen and Wordlife sections) are generated through the Opus Independent network of Blogger-powered sites. Site programming by Switchcode.

More please!

I love to showcase beautiful and original Blogger powered designs in posts such as this and also on the dedicated Blogger showcase site, We Love Blogger. If you've designed a gorgeous, original Blogger design (or have discovered an awesome website powered by Blogger) then please let me know by submitting your site to the directory.

Your thoughts?
