Mike Kus is one of the most consistently inspiring web designers I know of. Once again he has designed a website design that truly stands out from the lot, making use of strong colors, lots of white space and great typography.

This small single page website was designed by @jackdecaluwe, a Belgian designer based in Sydney, Australia. I love the visual style, which is in large part shaped by the illustrative style and the strict use of a single purple color. Simply a very nice little site.

Simple but powerful visuals for this brand new one day festival that took place in Stockholm, Sweden last Saturday. Great colors and typography wrapped in a single page wrapping works really well here.

Spectacularly yummy portfolio site from a small web studio based in Charlotte, NC. Make sure to visit every sub-category in the About section. There's some really nice details in there. Bonus points for having a color scheme that doesn't stray far from Styleboost's own palette. Via @insp_ire.

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.

This one here is simply a small and incredibly beautiful iOS app teaser page. The colors, illustrations and subtle animations do wonders to show off the potential of this game.

Spotify's biggest challenger has recently launched an unmissable website redesign. Everything about this site is supreme — from the complete user experience to the typography, illustrations, photos, colors, and basically every minute detail you come across. Even the responsive aspects are top notch, which is unsurprising as it has been designed by an A-team that includes Ryan Sims, Wilson Miner and Malthe Sigurdsson.

Delightful interactions and lovely illustrations combined with clear explanations make for a very intriguing teaser site for Carbonmade's upcoming job board of sorts. My two favorite parts of the site are #1 how the carousel is rotating in a circular motion and #2 how the same carousel showcases the various professions. Bonus points for the cuteness!

Released last year, but still worth a closer look. The political issue aside, this is a great example of efficient storytelling in web design. Beautiful, to the point and filled with information without feeling overwhelming. Very inspiring to see how well they pulled off this idea.
