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.

The latest iteration of Virb's visual design is downright fantastic. And I'm actually surprised, because this is — as far as I know – the first design process at Virb that hasn't been led by Ryan Sims. The Virb team has once again done an amazing job that positions Virb as the most droolworthy CMS in this crowded field.

I love the visual profile of Friends of The Web. The color palette reminds me of data centric services and tools like Google. They come across as an agency it'd be fun to work with. The Project Inquiry/General Contact option is also a great touch on the Contact page.

What a thoroughly high quality site this is. The design is inviting and friendly in both language and visual design. To me, it comes across as a great service that hopefully attracts more than a few non-profits. Great job by Dodd, Marshall and Sean!

The world of food recipe sites is a very crowded playing field, and that is why I love Gojee's approach to design. Lead designer Adam Meisel has taken a bold approach by focusing on huge photos to entice food lovers. There are also other innovative aspects to the design, like the "I crave..." feature in the top bar. My only gripe with the site is that it could be even faster to browse.
