Table of Contents: Creative Examples



Table of contents is often considered to be one of the most unspectacular design elements ever invented.

In fact, many creative approaches are possible. Table of Contents: Creative Examples

Summize, a price comparison site, offers a new way of displaying ratings: colored bars, which summarize the reviews : the more green, the more positive they are. Where stars only give an average rating, those color bars really add some depth to the information. And I love how their rating system is graphically reflected in their fav-icon.

I agree wth David Abbet: Simple, elegant, useful.
