It’s a poorly kept secret that I couldn’t design my way out of a box (take note of the generic template used on this site). Therefore, when I need to put together a web page I often turn to free html/css templates as a starting point (or if nothing else, a starting point). Here’s a few of the sites I’ve discovered with decent html/css templates:
Open Source Web Design - One of the oldest sites, and one of the best.
Open Web Design - Somewhat of a mixed bag, but there is good work here - particularly if you check out the ‘Popular’ section.
Free Layouts - Not as good as the first two, but some good designs.
Open Source Templates - These are impressive.
Free CSS Templates - These are also consistently very good.
I’ve also got a couple of sites I use for help picking color schemes:
I would be interested in knowing where other people who don’t have the benefit of working with a designer turn for help and inspiration. Leave your favorite sites in the comments.
