Rails Day 2006 is designed by Fusionary.
The Rails Day designers approachÃ‚Â in the design is big and bold. They have such a beautiful color scheme that is perfectly executed by the use of a dark black background coupled with the beige sidebar and topped off with some white for the content area.
The social media icons are well placed and they should definitely increase the site’s social bookmarks.
One last thing I would like to mention is the logo. You really have to hand it to Rails Day, and fusionary for such a wicked logo. I love the choice of font used and the clever way of including the rails dots on the scroll banner.
