Simple and beautiful portfolio from a small four person design agency based in Los Angeles, California. What strikes me about this site is their style that manages to wonderfully unite analog and digital visuals, as well as the fact that every single page looks elegantly crafted. Not world changing, but truly impressive nonetheless. Via The Fox is Black.

I have yet to stay at a Four Seasons hotel. Still, in my mind they have an impeccable reputation for great service design. With their recent complete revamp of their online offering, Four Seasons takes a great leap forward. I know the competition isn't too tough, but I have yet to see a better hotel website than this. Finally someone raised the bar.

I love the combination of a boxy grid-based design and great product photos in use at the Unit Portables site. You immediately get the feeling that their products are genuinely unique. However, my favorite part of the design is the way they have pulled the color of the main products displayed on the homepage onto the box below. It works especially well with the strong red and blue bags. Nice touch! Via @tomcavill.

Previously known as BankSimple aka the Future of Banking. I'd like to use the words of Tim van Damme to point out the disruptive momentum in Simple: "This is probably the most anticipated product ever for me". The site itself as well as the screenshots they're showing off look truly stunning. The fact that the current state of online banking UX is in such a bad shape gives Simple a huge opportunity right now. Hopefully the rest will try to catch up soon.

Joshua Topolsky & friends' just launched a very promising new tech news site. It's worth noting that they are creating a true next gen editorial news site. I love the way they've laid out the homepage plus the way they've colored some of the photos. Learn more about this new venture.

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!

After some digging around, I found out that Dustin Mierau is the mastermind in charge of Product Design at @path. Even though @instagram came out first and forced @path to launch early, @path has still managed to blow some minds with its unusual take on "social" combined with a drop dead gorgeous user experience. Every single pixel is lickable. That goes for the website as well as the iPhone app – including the app icon.
