If you've noticed on a SLEW of design sites there is a strong use of 45 degree angles. When drawing with the selection tool in photoshop I think you hold down shift (or ctrl). They are usually just solid color blocks draw with this angle implemented in them somewhere. Does that make sense? If not let me know and I'll point you to a few sites.
