Founded in Oslo in 2006 by two siblings, the Holzweiler Agency aims to be a key distributor of quality fashion labels in Norway. Their website perfectly reflects what they are trying to achieve, in large part thanks to world class design by Bielke+Yang and flawless front-end implementation by Dekode.

BKLYNR is an independent issue based online publication whose mission is to publish great journalism about Brooklyn. The people behind the site aren’t backed by VC money or a big corporation, so they decided to turn to a subscription based model to make this possible. It's very well done, even more so than The Magazine, especially if you live in Brooklyn.

The front page of Playground's new website features some pretty sweet animations when you scroll down. But when you start to dive deeper into the site, that's when you really get a feel of how talented this team is. Lots of great little details, the case studies are killer, and the snappiness (is that a word?) really makes for an enjoyable experience.

Styleboost is finally back. And to kick it all off, I present to you the spectacular redesign of Squarespace. It looks gorgeous as always, but there are two aspects of the new site that are especially interesting: 1) It hides away the navigation on all platforms — not only on mobile, and 2) it confronts the user with "stories" that are basically the first step in setting up your own site on Squarespace. Clever, pretty and edgy all in one package, what's not to like?

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.

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.
