Simple, elegant and beautiful. My favorite part about this one is the transitions in the main showcase window on the homepage.

The employees of Norwegian studio Klipp og lim love attending festivals of all kinds. That's why they have created this minisite, which is basically a targeted offer to festivals in need of beautiful design on a very low budget. A great idea that is perfectly executed as a single page. Unfortunately, this site is in Norwegian only.

Another great Norwegian site design was just released. I find this design to be a great accomplishment, as they've managed to make it memorable while at the same time making the text very easily readable. They've also done some great content and design decisions that I think will provide them with a lot of new clients. Unfortunately, this site is in Norwegian only. Simple, beautiful and effective.

Sommerfesten, a small Norwegian festival with a small but wonderful site (Norwegian only, I'm afraid). We Make seem to be churning out some of Norway's finest little websites one after another these days.

Grooveshark has revamped Tinysong and made it even easier to share single songs. I think TechCrunch's Robin Wauters describes it well: "Simple, useful, and nicely designed. What’s not to love?"

A few days ago, Facebook announced that they had acquired Divvyshot. If I'm not mistaken, Divvyshot launched its redesigned site just a few days prior to the announcement. I'm not sure what's going to happen to the new design and the service, but hopefully someone will make use of Divvyshot's design even after Facebook has merged the service into its own photo sharing service. It's a high class quality design that truly stands out from its competitors, after all.

Humanstudio (a.k.a Human) is a creative agency consisting of a core studio team and an extended network of talent. Founder Nick Bax was previously a director of The Designers Republic. The studio's portfolio site is basically a grid of thumbnail images of various sizes. The navigation is intuitive and easy to use, though I'd love the previous/next links to be a bit bigger. The work on display is, of course, splendid. Via CssDsgn.

Here's a designer clothing site from Serbia with some nice details in the navigation. Notice the way the items in the navigation become active as the images progressively are preloaded one after another. I'm not 100% in love with all the choices made in the design, but it looks stunning and has a slick implementation of various levels of navigation. Kudos to Nikola Arezina for pulling it off with such class.
