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.

Etch is a small digital design & development agency located in Kent, UK. I think this is an incredible site with regards to elegantly and effectively explaining what they are all about. They come off as high quality and all around nice folks.

Everpix is one of those services that I really hope will succeed despite that I'm not currently subscribing to the photo management tool myself. However, I have been beta testing it a while back, and I must say it's an exquisitely designed service. The landing page is also a great example of the quality of the design, so check it out if you're not already signed up for Everpix.

The recent acquisition of ReadWriteWeb by Say Media has resulted in a wonderful redesign and rebranding into what is now known as ReadWrite. I must admit that I love the design. Rarely has a news site felt this fresh and modern. Three thumbs up for the parallax-ish scrolling technique. For more info, Fake Steve Jobs aka Dan Lyons, the new editor-in-chief of ReadWrite, has a good writeup about the new site and concept. Via Martin Berglund.

Built by @dhg, @connors and @fat, Ratchet is a framework for prototyping iPhone apps with simple HTML, CSS and JS components. While I have no doubt that Ratchet is the new cool kid on the prototyping block, the reason it is listed here on Styleboost is simply because it presents the tool in a elegant and informative way.

“Boy genius” Nick D’Aloisio recently launched his mobile news app that has a long list of high profile investors like Stephen Fry, Matt Mullenweg, Ashton Kutcher, Betaworks and many more. The app is interesting enough, and looks beautiful. However, that shouldn't be enough to be posted here on Styleboost. The site is posted because it is accompanied by a very smooth and elegant landing page. I'm pretty sure that it works wonders to show off the power of Summly.

In the words of Robert Scoble: "The new @foursquare home page is crack!" Personally I find the new site top notch and very fast, and don't forget the awesomeness of the super clean homepage when logged out. I'm guessing it has the highest conversion rate of any teaser page for an iPhone app ever. Great work by @sambrown and the Foursquare team. Via @danielmall.

Joe Hewitt and his girlfriend Laura Copeland have created a beautiful photo blog. What's most exciting about this site is the fantastic scroll-based user interface built on Joe's Scrollability. Thanks to this the site is a joy to experience across devices, especially on my iPhone 4. Joe has also written a post about the project. In his words: "Inertial scrolling is a fundamental part of touch screen devices, regardless of their visual design, and should be used more often on the web."

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.

I came across this one accidentally while reading up on Ruby on Rails. Typeonerror is a duo working to solve interactive design challenges. I really love how powerful their identity is through the use of colors, contents and interface elements. Quality stuff.
