This one here is probably the best fansite for any sports team I have ever seen. The color palette is great, the statistcs are beautifully presented, the typography is flawless, even the 404 page is created with lots of love and attention to details. Make sure to check out the team squad illustrations while you're at it.

I'm pretty much drooling over Envoy, the new venture from Vítor Lourenço and Larry Gadea. Envoy was built out of the frustration of seeing archaic visitor registration systems in Silicon Valley. I think there is a massive potential for such a product, especially when it looks so promising. Not to mention the beautiful landing page.

The guys at LayerVault have created one of the best examples of a beautifully designed flat interfaces I've ever encountered. If you haven't already, you really should check out LayerVault. Make sure to have a look at their blog, their designer news service and their open source projects as well.

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.

Etch is a small digital design & development agency located in Kent, UK. I think this is an incredible site with regards to elegantly and effectively explaining what they are all about. They come off as high quality and all around nice folks.

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!

FFF is the beautiful experimental playground of Jongmin Kim, an interactive developer at Firstborn Multimedia in NYC. It's obvious that his inspirations date back to the now more or less extinct era of Flash. However, don't take that as a negative in this case. This is also reminiscent of Yugo Nakamura's work from years back, but at the same time doing its own thing. I miss these inspirational experimental playgrounds.

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.

The recent acquisition of ReadWriteWeb by Say Media has resulted in a wonderful redesign and rebranding into what is now known as ReadWrite. I must admit that I love the design. Rarely has a news site felt this fresh and modern. Three thumbs up for the parallax-ish scrolling technique. For more info, Fake Steve Jobs aka Dan Lyons, the new editor-in-chief of ReadWrite, has a good writeup about the new site and concept. Via Martin Berglund.
