Apparently B&O PLAY seems to deliver stand-alone products aimed at owners of Apple products. The site is pretty straightforward, except for the product presentations which are surprisingly well done. They scale nicely to fit the browser window, and even feature keyboard navigation as a small bonus. Make sure to pay attention to all the effort they've put into the little details.

Wantful is basically a service for buying + sending gifts to friends and loved ones — with a twist. I really think the Facebook integration in the form when you first try the service is brilliant way of getting new users to sign up. Also, make sure that you go through the process of specifying your friend's interests at least once. It's remarkably well done.

Here's the portfolio of an Oslo based design agency that unfortunately has only a Norwegian language site. However, it should be pretty straight-forward to navigate for Styleboost's international audience. I love how they've managed to keep it all elegant and spacious while at the same time making use of large, easily legible type. The minimal footer is also a nice touch. As are the colors.

Simple and beautiful portfolio from a small four person design agency based in Los Angeles, California. What strikes me about this site is their style that manages to wonderfully unite analog and digital visuals, as well as the fact that every single page looks elegantly crafted. Not world changing, but truly impressive nonetheless. Via The Fox is Black.

Spotify's biggest challenger has recently launched an unmissable website redesign. Everything about this site is supreme — from the complete user experience to the typography, illustrations, photos, colors, and basically every minute detail you come across. Even the responsive aspects are top notch, which is unsurprising as it has been designed by an A-team that includes Ryan Sims, Wilson Miner and Malthe Sigurdsson.

Beautifully designed printed inspirational reading material for digital designers seems to be all the rage these days. Offscreen is no exception. Needless to say, the accompanying site is brilliantly designed.

It has taken a few years, but the world class Swedish digital agency Doberman has finally come around to creating a proper website for themselves. Even though I think they should have dropped the "Tweets and blog feeds" from the home page, as this basically only serves to clutter their message, this is only nitpicking from my side. The project presentations and the other various sections of the site combine function and form with great success.

Delightful interactions and lovely illustrations combined with clear explanations make for a very intriguing teaser site for Carbonmade's upcoming job board of sorts. My two favorite parts of the site are #1 how the carousel is rotating in a circular motion and #2 how the same carousel showcases the various professions. Bonus points for the cuteness!

Released last year, but still worth a closer look. The political issue aside, this is a great example of efficient storytelling in web design. Beautiful, to the point and filled with information without feeling overwhelming. Very inspiring to see how well they pulled off this idea.

The recent redesign of Fast Company's design related news site Co.Design was a truly impressive feat. I'm absolutely loving the way they've built a visually unparalleled beauty that is also a pleasure to read. Add to that the fact that their editorial profile is very inspiring, and the incredibly well done responsive aspect of the design makes this one of the best editorial designs of all time in my book.
