Web Standards Sherpa website, built by Dan Cederholm is a pretty fun looking and solid site. I really love the illustration work and the overall organization of the content. It’s pretty awesome that there really isn’t a ‘main navigation’ design like you typically come to expect. You never miss it as you use the site. In fact the coolest part to me is that the main nav area becomes the breadcrumb – that’s so smart.

Web Standards Sherpa is (according to the site):

“…provide web professionals the opportunity to receive feedback, glean advice and learn best practices from experts in the field to help them improve the quality of their own work.”

There’s some pretty great folks behind the site and they’re already pumping out some really top notch articles. I’ve already put them in my RSS rotation, you should too.
