Exceptional Web Sites Built on WordPress

WordPress is a great platform for developing a cool community, portfolio or business site. Usually, however, you can recognize when a site is using WordPress. Not all sites, but when you look closely, you will notice which platform it’s using.

I wanted to look for some inspiration for one of my upcoming projects and thought – why not create something different than the normal and standard themes? So, I began looking for exceptional uses of WordPress theme development and found a rather large selection of inspiration. In fact, it was large enough to share my findings with all of you.

  1. I’m chuffed that you’ve included my site (Rawkes) in this post but I use Expression Engine, not WordPress.

    Admittedly, the old version of Rawkes did use WordPress.

  2. Thanks for the heads up ;), post updated.

  3. Nice assortment, but I thought I’d add this one by Eleven Media: http://www.parkyoung.com.au/

  9. Great list! There are a few I haven’t got on my WordPress gallery http://www.wpview.com, I’ll have to start adding them :)
