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.

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.
