This website for an old-school letterpress printer plays directly into one of the most tempting design crutches: thematic design. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good theme-based website design, and I have on numerous occasions raved about this particular interactive design approach. But in this example of great website design, you find an unusual layout that genuinely embraces the potential of the web. It manages to showcase the artist’s work in a fresh, unique way without feeling even the least bit like some attempt to force a print design aesthetic onto the web.
