The editors at The Rag, an edgy electronic publication, definitely didn't want their website to melt in with some of the other cheesy web designs out there, and with Adobe® Muse™ software, it doesn't.
Designer Krissy Marheine did an excellent job of bringing the look and feel of print to the web with paper texture backgrounds and handwritten/typewriter style fonts.

Arbitrary HTML is also used effectively to include social networking and advertising links.
