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.

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.

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.

I have yet to stay at a Four Seasons hotel. Still, in my mind they have an impeccable reputation for great service design. With their recent complete revamp of their online offering, Four Seasons takes a great leap forward. I know the competition isn't too tough, but I have yet to see a better hotel website than this. Finally someone raised the bar.

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.

I love everything about Everyday Photos by young Norwegian designer/photographer Kristian Hjelle. It's a clean and simple little photo blog, and it's perfectly executed. Of course it doesn't hurt that the photos are great. With gorgeous typography and every little detail just feeling right, this makes for an outstanding little site.
The only thing I miss is keyboard navigation.

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.

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."
