The new Teehan+Lax website is gorgeous. Not only that, but it's also very refreshing to see someone rethinking the function and layout of the front page of their portfolio site. The site is clean and functionalistic, and seems clearly inspired by a mobile first approach. It's also sprinkled with lots of great details all over, so you need to browse around for a bit to discover everything they have done with this. Make sure that you also read Geoff and Jon's wonderfully candid story of their company.

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.

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.

Beautifully designed printed inspirational reading material for digital designers seems to be all the rage these days. Offscreen is no exception. Needless to say, the accompanying site is brilliantly designed.

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.

Joshua Topolsky & friends' just launched a very promising new tech news site. It's worth noting that they are creating a true next gen editorial news site. I love the way they've laid out the homepage plus the way they've colored some of the photos. Learn more about this new venture.

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.

The world of food recipe sites is a very crowded playing field, and that is why I love Gojee's approach to design. Lead designer Adam Meisel has taken a bold approach by focusing on huge photos to entice food lovers. There are also other innovative aspects to the design, like the "I crave..." feature in the top bar. My only gripe with the site is that it could be even faster to browse.

iPhone app teaser websites come a dime a dozen. iPhone app teaser websites of this calibre however are much, much harder to come by. Scrolling this site is so enjoyable that I think it's right to compare it to the spectacular and very successful Ben the Bodyguard site. Seldom has a small project like developing a teaser site been turned into such a wonderful result. Great work by Image Mechanics.
