Hi all, this question may have been asked before, and if so, sorry and feel free to flame me for it. But coming from a programming background and no so much web design, creativity is very much a weakness of mine. Do you know of resources/templates that could aid me here? I'm not looking to rip off templates and stuff, I would like to do it myself, but most things I try just look very ... ordinary. I recommend a sticky, if this type of question is asked a lot.

Just rip off ideas from other sites. But admittedly some ppl will struggle to make their site look good. The more you practise the better you get. Those web design magasines are pretty useful for pawning of ideas that look good.

Ah, magazines didn't even consider that. Thanks for the reply.
