    Such a great collection of rainbow sites here, I like the different mixes with subtle uses of rainbow with the Truly Design, which uses no colours else where so the bright stripes really stand out and catch your eye, in comparison with the more in your face examples such as the Aspanovas Bizkaia design, which works really well with the stripey rainbow socks!

    I think my favourite overall design is the one from Every Pixel Counts, I like the use of colours against the grungy looking background and I think it looks very different from the Beautiful 2.0 example which is very similar in how it uses colours and textures overall.
