Codrops is definitely one of my favorites places online, where I often have a look when it comes to grab inspiration of the most trendy Web Design techniques.
It is a huge source of articles and tutorials thatI really enjoy reading, however one of my favorites features is the Blueprint section which give us a great collection of website grids, plugins or concepts, with a minimal design for an easy adaption or just for inspire us.
The following is one of the personal small project I developed using one of their great Tutorials as a template. Have a look here
