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.

Oliver Reichenstein's Information Architects is probably one of the world's most highly respected digital design agencies. With an impressive portfolio and a tendency to be among those who set the agenda when it comes to the most interesting design trends and debates, it's no suprise that they've done something truly inspiring and experimental when it comes to their own site. My favorite detail in the new design appears next to the scroll bar if you start scrolling in the blog.

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.

I love everything about Everyday Photos by young Norwegian designer/photographer Kristian Hjelle. It's a clean and simple little photo blog, and it's perfectly executed. Of course it doesn't hurt that the photos are great. With gorgeous typography and every little detail just feeling right, this makes for an outstanding little site.
The only thing I miss is keyboard navigation.

A wonderful example of how to make a minimalist website that truly puts the contents front and center. What really struck me with this one is the monochromatic interface combined with such great typography, margins and use of whitespace. Love the dark textured, left-hand sidebar.

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.

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!

Joe Hewitt and his girlfriend Laura Copeland have created a beautiful photo blog. What's most exciting about this site is the fantastic scroll-based user interface built on Joe's Scrollability. Thanks to this the site is a joy to experience across devices, especially on my iPhone 4. Joe has also written a post about the project. In his words: "Inertial scrolling is a fundamental part of touch screen devices, regardless of their visual design, and should be used more often on the web."

Lovely redesign by Dan Mall. The homepage is both clever and simple. Not to mention the superb portfolio navigation and the individually art directed articles. One of the most fascinating portfolio designs in a while. It's a site that subtly points out why Dan is considered one of the best.

Styleboost regulars Emil Bonsaksen and Anthoni Giskegjerde and the rest of the team at I&M have done a great job with the recent redesign of their website. I really like what the grid, the use of white space and the typography throughout.
