February 02, 2009

Its seems like the desktop and office style websites have been a popular design idea for a few years now. While many of these design share some of the same elements, it is always interested to see the random extras and nic-nacs that people add to them.

What is even more interesting about this style is how it has crossed over to many other genres of business aside from designers.

You will notice that we included a few websites from other industries that follow the same basic idea of the desktop design.
