Graphic design and illustration portfolio from Philadelphia. I love the yellow and black combined with the huge background image. Very nice! I've already fallen in love with several of the work samples he's displaying. That illustrative style is so smooth.

Not only did Lokesh Dhakar develop the beautifully simply Lightbox JS script. He has also crafted a blog design that strips it all down to a flat greyscale design that contains no interface graphics. The only graphics on this site are images to accompany the blog posts. Everything else is CSS, markup and text. Very impressive.

Made in ENGLAND by Gentlemen is made by Simon Cook who is very proud of his big moustache. This is essentially his blog where he feeds us with fun and interesting stuff, including some wonderful desktop images. The design is highly detailed and the color scheme is to die for. There's a lot that's worth looking at/reading here, too. Make sure to take a look at the favicon in Firefox!

Berlin based design of sorts Paul Wagner has put together a portfolio with a strong identity. This comes partly from the use of powerful use of black and white colors throughout, and partly from the work he's showcasing.

Marius Roosendaal's design portfolio features work he's done over the last few years. What strikes me most about this site, however, is the level of details in the interface. The two themes (night/day) are both superb. This is one of the most striking designs I've seen in a long time. And it's all done so understated.

Norwegian developer/designer/photographer Tobias Baeck has just mashed up his various online presences into one powerful package. Strong Flickr photography, a great logo, tons of del.icio.us links, Virb, LinkedIn, etc. Essentially Tobias' blog has great attitude and stands out from your average blog. Via Web creme.

Ubisoft's highly anticipated game is not only accompanied with traditional website like most games and movies. This game also has its own "online experience", an semi-interactive video that actually is a lot of fun. Via Ars Thanea Blog.

PSDtuts is a site filled with Photoshop tutorials that teach us about creating great graphics and effects in a friendly, approachable manner. I love the color scheme and shiny details. If this site was a dish, I would eat it.

Image editing for the rest of us. Well not for me, as I'm not a Mac-user. This site is close to perfection on a couple of levels. First of all, it shows us the right way to sell a product; in a clean and delicate wrapping (i.e. site). Beautiful icons and subtle, dark colors combined with striking imagery and a few strong colors. It also takes the style of Mac-related sites (I think you know what I mean by this) to their own place with delicious darkness. The way they present this software makes me really want to try it out, and I think it has a lot to do with the graphics, not the features of the program.

Steven Hylands of Northern Ireland has developed and designed a crisp and colorful portfolio site with a clear "CSS-feel" to it, if you understand what I'm saying. It looks and works great for its purpose.
