I am looking for some great examples of of non-trendy web design. Things that buck the trend of hero images and sans-serifs for something more artsy. Frank Chimero's site is kinda like what I am thinking.
SiteInspire has some pretty great examples. There are definitely some trendy ones in there, but not overloaded.
I think that Hover States is what you're looking for. Lots of well curated sites there, and has a really good newsletter too.
DSGN has lots of unusual design showcase and is updated regularly. You may want to check it out.
Liked what my friend Lennart did with Charity Works: http://charityworks.camp/
I like this year’s XOXO website.
SiteInspire is one of my favourite. Lots of unusual design - both web and print - you can find collected on my Tumblr: http://metamn.tumblr.com
