50 New Beautiful Blog Designs

Advertisement

There are things that can’t be showcased too often. For instance, beautiful blog designs. We have presented hundreds1 of2 beautiful3 blog4 designs5 in the past and now it’s time to provide our readers with a fresh portion of tasty design inspiration.

All blogs listed below have an original, unique design. They aren’t based upon some ready-to-be-used WordPress templates, but are the result of a hard, time-consuming work – therefore they deserve respect and admiration. Yes, many of these design are quite “heavy” on graphcs, not only because they look impressive on a tiny 550px-width-screenshot.

Below we present 50 new, beautiful, creative and (hopefully) inspiring blog designs. We feature many various styles and designs – hopefully, everybody will find some inspiring elements and design solutions for his or her next design. And, of course, thanks to all designers and artists featured in this post! All screenshots are linked to the original designer’s site.

    Not loving all of them – some are the very definition of ‘minimalist’, and others are so busy and over-designed they give me a headache. Still, a great collection for inspiration!

    Nothing to see here. Move along. If this is “beautiful,” design standards are a shadow of what they once were.
