The new Teehan+Lax website is gorgeous. Not only that, but it's also very refreshing to see someone rethinking the function and layout of the front page of their portfolio site. The site is clean and functionalistic, and seems clearly inspired by a mobile first approach. It's also sprinkled with lots of great details all over, so you need to browse around for a bit to discover everything they have done with this. Make sure that you also read Geoff and Jon's wonderfully candid story of their company.

The guys at LayerVault have created one of the best examples of a beautifully designed flat interfaces I've ever encountered. If you haven't already, you really should check out LayerVault. Make sure to have a look at their blog, their designer news service and their open source projects as well.

Work is a world class branding and product design team located in the heart of Oslo. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that they are passionate about their work. They also have the skills and resources to do incredible work for their clients. The site is clean and elegant throughout. My favorite part is how well they communicate their work through the use of big photos, their love for their craft, as well as the fact that they're in it for the long haul.

It's refreshing to see someone approach blog design with such a different mindset as Tobias van Schneider and Stephen Burgess did with Minimal Monkey. It's especially nice when the result is something so superb as this. Make sure you don't miss this one. Via Dribbble.

Etch is a small digital design & development agency located in Kent, UK. I think this is an incredible site with regards to elegantly and effectively explaining what they are all about. They come off as high quality and all around nice folks.

As always with MailChimp's designs, their annual report is a beauty to behold. They also managed to strip away everything but the bare essentials, which is a big plus in my book. My main gripe with sites like this one that have dynamically changing backgrounds, is that it's basically impossible to capture a full page screenshot. Damn you for making my life harder, MailChimp! Damn you!

It's refreshing to see such a stripped down portfolio site as Awkward. You may have heard of their baby, Shipment, which is a similarly beautiful web app. Awkward is minimal, flat, full of white space and definitely not awkward. Hot stuff!

The awesome Swedish designer Tobias Ahlin has redesigned his portfolio site and it's well worth a visit. He has been heavily involved with Spotify in the past, and has a bunch of great work on his conscience. My only gripe with this single-pager is the lack of a responsive or mobile version.

FFF is the beautiful experimental playground of Jongmin Kim, an interactive developer at Firstborn Multimedia in NYC. It's obvious that his inspirations date back to the now more or less extinct era of Flash. However, don't take that as a negative in this case. This is also reminiscent of Yugo Nakamura's work from years back, but at the same time doing its own thing. I miss these inspirational experimental playgrounds.
