Our good friends at Kodebyraaet have a shiny new website. It's blue, beautiful and bold, and definitely deserves a closer look. The use of Avenir is a perfect touch. It's also great to see that they are providing some well deserved space for their own products as well.

Mike Kus is one of the most consistently inspiring web designers I know of. Once again he has designed a website design that truly stands out from the lot, making use of strong colors, lots of white space and great typography.

This is simply one of the very best pitch decks I've ever come across. Charity: water makes it perfectly clear that they really care about what they are trying to achieve, that all of the proceeds will go towards solving the water crisis, and also that this is a cause that really does matter. You cannot possibly click your way through this presentation without picking up on these messages. Via @dhh.

The front page of Playground's new website features some pretty sweet animations when you scroll down. But when you start to dive deeper into the site, that's when you really get a feel of how talented this team is. Lots of great little details, the case studies are killer, and the snappiness (is that a word?) really makes for an enjoyable experience.

The new Teehan+Lax website is gorgeous. Not only that, but it's also very refreshing to see someone rethinking the function and layout of the front page of their portfolio site. The site is clean and functionalistic, and seems clearly inspired by a mobile first approach. It's also sprinkled with lots of great details all over, so you need to browse around for a bit to discover everything they have done with this. Make sure that you also read Geoff and Jon's wonderfully candid story of their company.

It's refreshing to see someone approach blog design with such a different mindset as Tobias van Schneider and Stephen Burgess did with Minimal Monkey. It's especially nice when the result is something so superb as this. Make sure you don't miss this one. Via Dribbble.

As always with MailChimp's designs, their annual report is a beauty to behold. They also managed to strip away everything but the bare essentials, which is a big plus in my book. My main gripe with sites like this one that have dynamically changing backgrounds, is that it's basically impossible to capture a full page screenshot. Damn you for making my life harder, MailChimp! Damn you!

It's refreshing to see such a stripped down portfolio site as Awkward. You may have heard of their baby, Shipment, which is a similarly beautiful web app. Awkward is minimal, flat, full of white space and definitely not awkward. Hot stuff!

The awesome Swedish designer Tobias Ahlin has redesigned his portfolio site and it's well worth a visit. He has been heavily involved with Spotify in the past, and has a bunch of great work on his conscience. My only gripe with this single-pager is the lack of a responsive or mobile version.

One of the most obvious sites that should already have been posted here on Styleboost in 2012. It is a beautifully designed guide book from MailChimp. Check it out if you haven't already done so.
