I love the life thematic web design can bring to a project. But there’s always a limit to how far it should go. The combination I really love to see is a thematic design merged with a practical, predictable and usable layout. That’s exactly what the Kansas City Creep Fest site has. This simple site promotes a fun event in style. This makes it not only more fun to build, but also more effective. The site clearly communicates its purpose, encourages you to attend and promote the event, and is dead simple to use.
