This is one portfolio that I would like to eat for dessert. Its blog-like separation of content, tag-like categorization and overall aesthetics makes it stand out from most designer sites. I love the colors and [what I perceive as] the programmer's take on web design. Pretty and functional, but still with a touch of traditional design traditions. Via Web Creme.

Ivan Santic, a member of HyperIsland's Crew12, has got himself one of the least blog-looking blogs around. The way he's used Flash, added his portfolio and made use of mouseover images in the right hand column, all makes for an experience that feels far from any WordPress site I've ever visited in the past. In addition to his knack for design, Ivan's got some good 3D skills, obviously.

Small. Simple. Tight. Beautiful. Those are all words I find fitting for Norwegian web designer/journalist Olav Bjørkøy's blog design. It works extremely well, and is worth a closer look. He even makes good use of png alpha transparency.

Toronto based Nick La's portfolio/blog/playground is an outstanding work on its own. It is a design that has a great deal of details and an amazing color scheme for such a clean layout. I only have one issue with this one; the ads. They seem cluttered and random, and take up way too much of my attention while I'm visiting the site.

Graphic designer Andreas Pihlström's portfolio is very unusual, but only as a portfolio. What I mean, is that its navigation is laid out the same way as most blogs are. Take a look, you'll see what I mean. I really like this, as well as the great works on display.

Ed Merritt is a web designer with a love for web standards. He's based in both London and Bournemouth, where he seems to churn out some seriously yummy work. His own portfolio/blog is one of the best of its kind as far as clean information organization goes. It's both a information-filled beauty as well as being very simple to grasp.

9 rules member Neil Patel write about anything related to online marketing, search engine optimization, and buzz marketing. I've found some good reads on there, and I'm sure to check out some more as soon as I have time. What strikes me most about his site, though, is how unbelievable pretty it is. The graphical details, the layout and the colors are just perfect.

Veerle's blog 2.0 is exactly that; it's a blog and it's Web 2.0. Correct if I'm mistaken, but Veerle is probably Belgium's greatest talent in the web design community these days. For those of you who are wondering why I'm posting this on Styleboost™ now, I can only say that I'm trying to fill a few gaps in the database. This is one of them. I'm posting it becuase it's such a beautiful and detailed site. The colors, the illustrations, the icons, the code.

Shaun Inman has redesigned his website. The makeover takes the site to a whole new level with a great quick access navigation area. Shaun definitely is a master in his field, or should I say wizard? His standards compliant work shows how Flash is totally needless these days.

The mesmerizing 'Bus full of hippies edition' of the Joshuaink site has recently launched. As it lives up to its name, it also lives up to very high standards as far as coding and design goes. One of a kind and a beautiful technical wonder. A great advocate for web standards.
