Site of the Day: HEROized.com

I selected this as a Site of the Day for what I call “thematic restraint.” For a website that creates superhero avatars, it could be really tempting for the designer to go totally nuts: a comic-book-style layout, insane JavaScript animations and speech bubbles from the characters. Instead, this site uses an awesome theme with massive restraint. When you control a theme as tightly as this site does and effectively merge it with the real needs of the site, the results can be extraordinary.
