As the application deadline draws to a close for the Designer Fund Bridge Fall Sessions, I guess it's time to also share the Bridge website here on Styleboost. I'm impressed with the clear communication, the wonderful photography and the attention to details. But the Bridge Blog is so good that I think it would have deserved a listing here even if the rest of the site was sub par.

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.

Medium is the hot new venture from The Obvious Corporation. In fact, they are attempting to redefine online publishing as a system optimized for quality, rather than popularity. This, of course, is music to my ears. Make sure to read Ev Williams' post about the reasoning behind Medium.

Even if I'm not using Branch as much as I should, I still consider it one of my favorite sites of 2012. I think it has so much potential when it comes to raising the bar on online discussions. This topic is something that has been occupying a lot of my time lately, and Branch is one of the most exciting takes I've seen on this so far. Also, it looks great and is full of subtly designed features that may help Branch succeed.

As Styleboost has been on hiatus for the past few months, there's quite a backlog of sites that should have been posted here a long time ago. Disqus is one such site. This is perhaps one of the most interesting experiments I've ever encountered when it comes to homepage designs. The interactive Disqus demo prominently placed in the center of the homepage just immediately pulls the user in. Not only is it a powerful visual cue, but it also quickly manages to show off the tool that is Disqus. Would be very interesting to see how well this converts new sign-ups for them.

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.

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.

MetaLab seems to be doing incredibly well these days with all of their endeavours. To account for Flow's popularity, they recently relaunched the Flow site. It now features a much more interesting rundown of the features, among other things. I love the transparent navigation bar, and everything is pixel perfect, as always with these guys. Read more about the redesign.

Even though With is mostly an iPhone app, there is also a slick website to go along with it. And don't forget it's also Path's Twitter based little brother. I really love the simplicity and the transitions on the site. I'm also assuming the site was designed by @dtrinh, but I may be wrong.
