SWE is a creative Swedish agency with a nice little portfolio. The site is laid out with a very clear grid. It's atypical and it works well, though some of the transitions get a bit old (i.e. slow) after a few clicks. I really like how the site relies on typography throughout the design.

Campaigns come a dime a dozen, but this one for Mahi online forex trading truly shines. It is quite simple, but stands out by making use of clear and beautiful infographics and stats to explain why you should sign up for an invitation. I wish more digital campaigns took this approach. Head on over to SEOmoz to read more about the campaign.

Another goodie I found in Rebekah Cox's latest design inspiration post. I think this portfolio site can best be described as elegant, shiny, slick and subtle — or something along those lines. The most impressive parts of the site are the homepage and the Flight Card presentation. Also, pay attention to the quality of the user interfaces in their apps.

This clean new architect portfolio site by Bleed and Værsågod feels close to perfect. The color scheme is subtly brilliant. If I have to nit-pick, I think the people filtering should function on hover instead of click, and the news feed is a wee bit confusing/annoying. Via @tobiasbaeck.

A wonderful example of how to make a minimalist website that truly puts the contents front and center. What really struck me with this one is the monochromatic interface combined with such great typography, margins and use of whitespace. Love the dark textured, left-hand sidebar.

Even though With is mostly an iPhone app, there is also a slick website to go along with it. And don't forget it's also Path's Twitter based little brother. I really love the simplicity and the transitions on the site. I'm also assuming the site was designed by @dtrinh, but I may be wrong.

Finally the Star Wars franchise gets the website it deserves. Very clean, simple and user friendly. To sum up: Superb. Via @danielmall.

The portfolio site of the Chicago based One Design Company is well worth a closer look. They've put together an impressive double axis navigation scheme that just feels right. It works very well as a portfolio, with large screenshots and photos, and the keyboard navigation is a nice touch. Via Rebekah Cox.

The best designed online newspaper in the world right now. Plain and simple. Filament Group teamed up with Ethan Marcotte and Upstatement to build an accessible, progressive enhancement and responsive-design based subscription news site that kicks everyone else's ass. Not everything is perfect on this site, but almost everything that really matters is. If you're in the business of designing news sites, like me, this one should be the bar you're aiming for.

Ryan & Tina Essmaker design and curate The Great Discontent, a journal focusing on creativity, risk, and inspirational artists. The site is a wonderful example of cutting edge responsive webdesign. The fact that they take the time to individually art direct each individual article makes me love it even more. Beautifully presented and very well done.
