Irrland is a science/art project by Sebastian Waters und Patrick Beser taking place all over Ireland. This is also the most ambitious and experimental design of a Tumblog I've ever seen. The interface isn't perfect, but it's well worth a closer look. They've done some wonderful work in the details.

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

Designer/illustrator celebrity Jon Hicks has designed a beautiful theme for WordPress and Tumblr. The fact that he went for a horizontally scrolling interface surprised me, but it works surprisingly well. It's great to see that it's possible to do something like that without making it too intricate and/or frustrating.

Make sure to take a good long look at this one. This is very, very well done. That's all.

If you're a web designer, this one's for you. Method & Craft is a new site filled with great content by big names in our business. And it's really pretty, too. Via Chris Coyier.

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.

Edward Hann's single page portfolio is an example of paying attention to all the little details. My favorite part of this one is how he has laid out the images of his work.

Vivi Kola, The Swiss Original Since 1938 has a sugary sweet CSS + jQuery interface. There's lots of scrolling involved here, but the unusual look, feel and layout makes for an enjoyable experience. A job well done by Hinderling Volkart.

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.

This one does need any explanation really. The only question is why I didn't post it before. The site is filled with beautiful little details like illustrations, rollover effects and so on. Needless to say, the site really makes me want to attend the festival.
