Using parachutes/hot air balloons in website designs has almost become a trend now. Even though this is not a common element, there are quite a few websites(which I have listed below) that might contribute to evolution of this new trend.

I have also included a FREE parachute graphics package(Fireworks png) at the bottom of this post.

  6. But of course balloons and parachutes are trendy (or should be) :-) I catch myself all to often doodling balloons, simply because they are fun to draw, and I guess they also symbolize some kind of freedom

    They are more like hot air balloon that the parachutes though :P, whatever.
