We Dance to the Beat is actually a site on its own, but located on [the awesome Swedish artist] Robyn's website. Create your own beat and share it with your friends. The retro C64-ish look and feel goes great with the music. This retro site is really a stunner visually. Via @ALmendili.

Christopher Meeks' portfolio site makes use of a huge background image with a minimalistic and very focused interface. I'm in love with the way he's concentrated all the information into a small area in the middle of the screen. It has forced him to strip away everything that is unnecessary. A great, little site.

I have seen countless services and custom made sites aiming to play the role of simple online business cards for its users. Very rarely do these stand out. I have also seen way too many creative sites that make use of splash screens, animations or other creative ways of annoying site visitors. Benjamin De Cock's site is both an online business card and makes use of a splash animation. Still, I find it so elegantly done that it actually works. Congrats to Benjamin for pulling this off without pissing me off.

This beer website is outstanding for a couple of reasons. First of all it's exceptionally beautiful thanks to all the awesome illustrations. Secondly, it's got a very neat way of navigating/sorting/browsing the various contents. This is an interesting concept that made me spend more time on the site than I normally would.

Ben the Bodyguard is basically a teaser website for getting people to sign up to be notified when a new iPhone app is launched. But it's such wonderfully executed. In fact, I've never seen anything quite like this. A big win for HTML5 storytelling. Via Robbin Ingvarsson.

This site is a real gem. It is an almost mind-blowing way of delving deeper into old NASA missions. The site features original transcripts, NASA photographs, visualizations and stats. If you like this site, you really should read about how and why /dev/fort developed the site and even consider contributing on GitHub.
