Httpster is a showcase of damn fine website design, lovingly curated and categorised so we can perv on it at our whim.

We love good typography, and effective, unpretentious design; in short, simple ideas executed perfectly. While we aim to showcase excellent development as well, we apologise in advance for including poorly coded stuff if it just looks so damn good.

History

Httpster’s first iteration was built when Tom (@guvnor) and I (@dominicwhittle) shared a studio. We would email links of nice sites to each other but we’d lose them. Pretty quickly we realised we’d need a better system for sharing and tagging the stuff we get inspired by. I built a quick site in a weekend and threw it online.

We’re now in the third iteration and relatively popular. There are a few new players involved (including the team behind me at Weekends and Jess Cruikshank who created our awesome new logotype) but it’s still Tom and I doing the day to day curation and development.

How do I pronounce “Httpster”?

I don't know. I just sort of mumble “hipster” and then change the subject to my favourite beard oil, vegan food joints, and alternate life choices. Vaccinate your kids, for fuck’s sake.

Who drew the sick logotype?

I know, right. That was the amazing Jess Cruikshank. Super rad.
