I'm posting the 80/20 studio website despite the fact that it's not brand new. I've been coming back to the site for a little while now, and it just occurred to me that the site is in my humble opinion the perfect single page portfolio site. It's super clean without being boring or bland, but at the same time manages to include all the information they need to communicate to show that they are the very best in their field. In addition to being very beautiful, I especially love they they haven't added nice to have features like a contact form or a built in map. It's all about UX.

If you're a web designer, this one's for you. Method & Craft is a new site filled with great content by big names in our business. And it's really pretty, too. Via Chris Coyier.

Netlife Research is a UX/UI consultancy based in Oslo, Norway. In the past I've found their work to be more focused on usability, IA & content strategy, rather than aesthetically pleasing designs. And they've been doing a damn fine job with that. But now, with the recent redesign of their own website, they seem to have stepped things up in the aesthetics department as well — in part thanks to some fantastic illustrations by @PabloLobato. They've written a post about the redesign in Norwegian.

Climate Wisconsin is probably my favorite site from the first month of 2011. A very important factor behind my proclamation of love for this project is the way that high quality video productions are used throughout the site. If you're very talented and manage to combine video productions and web design of this quality you may get lucky and create a killer site like this one maybe once in a decade.

After some digging around, I found out that Dustin Mierau is the mastermind in charge of Product Design at @path. Even though @instagram came out first and forced @path to launch early, @path has still managed to blow some minds with its unusual take on "social" combined with a drop dead gorgeous user experience. Every single pixel is lickable. That goes for the website as well as the iPhone app – including the app icon.

Zerply recently flew in Luke Beard from the British countryside to help them out with their new site design. They just launched the first results from their collaboration, and it's pure gold. My favorite parts of the new home page is the animated "User Login" button and the dynamic "Face Box" combined with a clear description and call to action. The use of Adelle via Typekit also works wonders.

MailChimp recently launched a brand new site design. Overall I think this is very impressive. Especially the way they've managed to make something unique while at the same time keeping it clean and elegant. @obox has posted some criticism about the way they communicate what they do, and I partially agree with this. Still, a wonderful site design both visually and functionally. I have to take a look at the "logged in" view.

Apple has tweaked their website in a way that deserves some attention. Basically, the main change is the excellent new black(-ish) navigation bar, but there are also some other very nice changes.

PTARMAK is a new studio of designers, writers, artisans and thinkers. I really like how they confronted the task of creating an online portfolio consisting of mainly physical objects. The navigation is a lovely touch that wonderfully accentuates the nature of their work.

Make sure to take a good long look at this one. This is very, very well done. That's all.
