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.

Work is a world class branding and product design team located in the heart of Oslo. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that they are passionate about their work. They also have the skills and resources to do incredible work for their clients. The site is clean and elegant throughout. My favorite part is how well they communicate their work through the use of big photos, their love for their craft, as well as the fact that they're in it for the long haul.

Two Create is an award winning multidisciplinary design agency offering a full range of client services from art direction, branding, spatial and product design to packaging and print. I love the refined elegance of this clean and simple portfolio. The site was designed by Sam Dallyn.

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.

Ditto is a beautifully designed online shop for buying designer eyewear. Make sure to check out the "Recommendations" feature, as it is both technologically and ux-wise a wonderfully implemented tool. The site would be great even if it wasn't for this single feature. Also, I'm loving the addition of the little "$" icons as an incentive to lure new users in to engage with the site.

Apparently B&O PLAY seems to deliver stand-alone products aimed at owners of Apple products. The site is pretty straightforward, except for the product presentations which are surprisingly well done. They scale nicely to fit the browser window, and even feature keyboard navigation as a small bonus. Make sure to pay attention to all the effort they've put into the little 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.

It seems that Nest is all the rage today, so why not just post it on Styleboost as well? In all seriousness it looks like a damn fine product — that is accompanied by an equally fine website. It does a great job of making us all drool over a thermostat, of all things.

Nokia rarely does anything that catches my eye. But with the launch of the MeeGo/Qt powered N9 I have realized that the Finnish company is actually able to "get" some of what's wrong with their usual lineup of phones. In fact, what I found most impressive with the launch was the very well done UX Guidelines site. This looks to be a great tool for UX designers looking to build apps for the N9. Well done, Nokia.

Mavic is a french manufacturer of high-end bike systems and rider’s equipment. The site demands very high bandwidth, but the reason for this is the fact that they're showing off very high quality close-ups of their products. This is exactly the right thing to do in a situation such as this. They are selling expensive gear to pros and high-end enthusiasts who are likely to be very picky and therefore very interested in knowing exactly what they buy. I also love that they've put the logo at the bottom right.
