Goodie! One of my favorite Norwegian design studios finally moved away from their old portfolio built with Flash. This new site clearly shows how well these designers understand the web, not only technology-wise but also the UX. This is probably one of my favorite site designs in a while. Just check out the beautiful typography and grid. The slide-in search box is also an exquisite touch.

SWE is a creative Swedish agency with a nice little portfolio. The site is laid out with a very clear grid. It's atypical and it works well, though some of the transitions get a bit old (i.e. slow) after a few clicks. I really like how the site relies on typography throughout the design.

Styleboost regulars Emil Bonsaksen and Anthoni Giskegjerde and the rest of the team at I&M have done a great job with the recent redesign of their website. I really like what the grid, the use of white space and the typography throughout.

Adaptive Path has for a long time been one of the major players in the field of user experience design. Their recent site redesign adds some long needed vitality to the site in the form of photos, colors and typography. I really love what they have done with this.

I'm posting the 80/20 studio website despite the fact that it's not brand new. I've been coming back to the site for a little while now, and it just occurred to me that the site is in my humble opinion the perfect single page portfolio site. It's super clean without being boring or bland, but at the same time manages to include all the information they need to communicate to show that they are the very best in their field. In addition to being very beautiful, I especially love they they haven't added nice to have features like a contact form or a built in map. It's all about UX.

If you're a web designer, this one's for you. Method & Craft is a new site filled with great content by big names in our business. And it's really pretty, too. Via Chris Coyier.

Illustrator, designer and writer Frank Chimero has made quite a name for himself. And deservedly so, if you ask me. He's given insightful lectures, written inspirational blog posts, not to mention having a portfolio to die for. He recently launched this elegant single page personal profile page.

Needless to say, ultra hot Paravel has done it again. Lake Wapogasset is actually a family of four camps with the same spiritual mission. I think @trentwalton, @davatron5000 and @raygunray have done a very impressive job of joining these camps together without taking away their individuality. What's more, since I'm an atheist, I've set the bar extra high for religious websites to be posted here. No, not really. That was supposed to be a joke. Lake Wapogasset is a very beautiful site. Paravel has also written a post about the process.

The "20 Things" site is very pretty, very well executed technically and all in all a very impressive package by Fi. But at the same time I can't help myself from hating the site a little bit for repeating many design antipatterns. iBooks is not a great interface for reading books. Flash is not a great interface for websites. To me it looks like those were the main inspirations for the design. To sum up my view: It's a cool site, but I hope this is not the future of the web.
(I feel bad for being so negative about a site that I post here. Styleboost is all about inspiration, not trash talk. Still, I had to get this off my chest.)

Lifetree Creative is the design studio of husband and wife duo Eduardo & Gedy Rivera. The latest redesign of their website is good stuff all the way. In fact I think it's one of the best examples of how to present a studio like this that I've ever come across. You can definitely see that they've paid attention to creating a good content strategy.
