Teaser sites for mobile and desktop apps come by the dozen these days. Still, very few of these sites manage to capture both the app's functionality, as well as the ease of use, as elegantly as CloudApp does. How anyone could possibly visit this site and not want to install CloudApp is beyond me.

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 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.

Styleboost is finally back. And to kick it all off, I present to you the spectacular redesign of Squarespace. It looks gorgeous as always, but there are two aspects of the new site that are especially interesting: 1) It hides away the navigation on all platforms — not only on mobile, and 2) it confronts the user with "stories" that are basically the first step in setting up your own site on Squarespace. Clever, pretty and edgy all in one package, what's not to like?

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 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!

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 cleanest and most elegant teaser sites I've ever seen — for any kind of product or service. Everything feels just right. It could easily have been just another clean site, but the details like the little animations, the subtle color variations and the photography make sure that this doesn't happen. Via @rovdyr.
