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.

A refreshing editorial home page layout that manages to stand out while at the same time feeling intuitive enough to quickly find quality content. The typography is killer, too. Sadly, some of the subpages deserve a little bit more attention to details. Still a wonderful site, though.

Everpix is one of those services that I really hope will succeed despite that I'm not currently subscribing to the photo management tool myself. However, I have been beta testing it a while back, and I must say it's an exquisitely designed service. The landing page is also a great example of the quality of the design, so check it out if you're not already signed up for Everpix.

This amazing universe for creative kids, started by a team led by Vimeo co-founder Zach Klein is one of the most interesting and inspirational new startups I've come across in a long time. Not only is the idea unusual, the design mesmerizing and the execution flawless, it is also a service that I will actually start using on a daily basis and that I hope will make my life a tiny bit better. They've also done some fantastic things regarding the dangers of building a community for children.

Ben Barry is one of the most interesting designers around. The fact that he happens to be working at Facebook has apparently — and quite surprisingly — been a great fit for him. This has given him the opportunity to work at some highly experimental and high profile projects, such as the immensely wonderful Analog Research Laboratory. I guess my favorite project in his portfolio is his work for the f8 conference. The portfolio is functionalistic and simple, but has some nice details.

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.

The Clubhouse is a beautifully quirky little blog containing interviews, art, news and doodles by selected artists. It's also a way for Carbonmade to show off the range and quality of their users. Truly inspiring and very well designed blog. There's nothing quite like it.

Ryan & Tina Essmaker design and curate The Great Discontent, a journal focusing on creativity, risk, and inspirational artists. The site is a wonderful example of cutting edge responsive webdesign. The fact that they take the time to individually art direct each individual article makes me love it even more. Beautifully presented and very well done.

Here's a goodie. A superbad single page portfolio site that is basically designed as an interactive poster. The typography and colors throughout, as well as the calls to action are all so well designed that you would be stupid not to be impressed. Check it out.
