Hi Dan,

Yeah, couldn't agree more. These examples are really eye-catching.
Also unsurprisingly they are Bootstrap-based websites too :)

However I think we need to find a perfect color combo for the Forge 
website (something "catchy" like the purple and green in Arquillian).
Any design expert volunteer to aid on this job ?

Best Regards,

George Gastaldi
