Jon Hicks just redesigned his journal/blog as a fluid site. Motivated by Ethan Marcotte’s excellent article for A List Apart Responsive Web Design, Jon has definitely done an impressive job. Make sure to resize your browser to see how it folds, bends and adapts.

Quora has one of the most addictive web interfaces of all time. Yes, the concept and the idea behind Quora is great. But what's more fascinating to me is how the interface just sucks me in. The responsive buttons, the little details and the spectacular typography + readability, all makes this site one of my very favorite site designs. Breathtaking work by Rebekah Cox and the Quora team.

Un.titled has done a great job with the Meos site. I'm very impressed with how they manage to combine straightforward techniques and very few effects into such a brilliant piece of design. Excellent layout and use of images. Also, love the subnavigation.

Just like last year, the Jedi Masters at Clearleft manage to reinvent the dConstruct conference site with great success. Once again they've taken the logo (and the name) and turned it into a wonderful conceptual website. Beautiful and to the point.

Simple, elegant and beautiful. My favorite part about this one is the transitions in the main showcase window on the homepage.

This is not the first time I'm extremely impressed with the design of Joyent's website. Once again they manage to pull off a great website redesign. And make no mistake, this is no realignment. This is a huge leap. Truly beautiful with great information architecture and readability.

The employees of Norwegian studio Klipp og lim love attending festivals of all kinds. That's why they have created this minisite, which is basically a targeted offer to festivals in need of beautiful design on a very low budget. A great idea that is perfectly executed as a single page. Unfortunately, this site is in Norwegian only.

In his attempt at instant world domination, Ole Martin Kristiansen aka @piraja has not only taken on a job at 45royale. He has also taken on the task of redesigning the Gitorious website for Shortcut. Why am I not surprised that he once again succeeds with flying colors? Beautiful details, wonderful structure and all in perfect harmony.

@happycog's brand new publishing venture launches it's first book, and with it a wonderfully simple text-focused website. The typography is great. Whitespace is excellent. Lovely typgraphy. What's not to like?

DeviantART is not only a great resource of icons, wallpapers and other great and not so great examples of digital art. The site was just revamped with a much lighter visual footprint. I haven't had a chance to try out the new navigation thoroughly yet, but I'm a big fan of the thoughts behind the new realignment. The user should be in charge to the greatest extent possible. Just like the previous version, the interface is still very beautiful.
