Rome: "3 Dreams of Black" is an ambitious interactive film made by Chris Milk with help from Google. The project was made as a Chrome experiment to show off the power of WebGL, basically enabling hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in the web browser without a plug-in. It's very impressive technologically and a mesmerizing beauty to behold. And they have done a good job of sharing the code and explaining the basics behind the development.

This one here is definitely no site in its own right. Rather, it's a single page sign up page for the Things Cloud Sync Beta pilot. What makes it worthy of a mention is a combination of the visuals and the CSS animations. Very inspiring. I also want to add how much I love the aesthetics, illustrations and level of details that Cultured Code always puts into their work.

This one does need any explanation really. The only question is why I didn't post it before. The site is filled with beautiful little details like illustrations, rollover effects and so on. Needless to say, the site really makes me want to attend the festival.

It's not very often that I post a "coming soon" landing page here on Styleboost. This one is worth it, however, as it makes great use of CSS3 animations. Even though intro animations basically at the turn of the millennium, Kickoff shows that they can work in the right context. Well done! Via @jay_hollywood.

I came across this one accidentally while reading up on Ruby on Rails. Typeonerror is a duo working to solve interactive design challenges. I really love how powerful their identity is through the use of colors, contents and interface elements. Quality stuff.

Paravel are back with yet another home run. This one reminds me why I love their work. Perfect textures, layout, illustrations, content balance, typography, and so on and so forth. Truly inspiring to see that they have such a knack of creating so much high quality and unique work.

Adaptive Path has for a long time been one of the major players in the field of user experience design. Their recent site redesign adds some long needed vitality to the site in the form of photos, colors and typography. I really love what they have done with this.

Shortcut is one of Norway's leading iOS app development studios. They recently launched their elegantly redesigned portfolio site. My favorite part: The individually customized app presentation pages.

Twitter UI designer Mark Otto recently released an add-on pack for LESS that is sure to simplify the development process for a lot of Styleboost's readers. That in itself, however useful, does not make this worthy of posting here. But Mark designed an irresistible site to accompany the software, so now I'm left with no choice but to post it here. You should also follow @mdo on Twitter.

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.
