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.

We Are Fixel is a small web agency you should keep an eye on. I don't care if they do great work and have a sweet portfolio. What really impresses me is the mind-bogglingly awesome "about" page. Make sure to take a look.

Illustrator, designer and writer Frank Chimero has made quite a name for himself. And deservedly so, if you ask me. He's given insightful lectures, written inspirational blog posts, not to mention having a portfolio to die for. He recently launched this elegant single page personal profile page.

Close to all of Nike's numerous websites have looked cutting edge and stupendously slick when they were launched. Nike Better World is no exception. The scrolling effect is a delightful touch. It's also interesting to see how the full page screen shot turned out. Too bad the links are external sites without the same look and feel.

The Cuban Council celebrates the new year in the best way possible, by launching an incredible redesign of their own website. Browsing their projects is more fun and way more revealing than before. If this site and its contents doesn't impress you, I'm pretty sure nothing will. The Field Guides are a very nice touch, too. And don't forget to take a look at their incredible identity work for Quora and Facebook. Via @kylebragger.

Designer/illustrator celebrity Jon Hicks has designed a beautiful theme for WordPress and Tumblr. The fact that he went for a horizontally scrolling interface surprised me, but it works surprisingly well. It's great to see that it's possible to do something like that without making it too intricate and/or frustrating.
