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.

Krillbite is an indie game development studio based in Hamar, Norway. My favorite parts about the site are the illustrated details, the typography (even though the body text is a tad tiny), the use of colors, the highlighted navigation items (great touch) and the humor.

The new Think Vitamin has given the site a great boost to the user experience side of things. The use of white space is hot. The same goes for the typography and the color scheme. I'm also very impressed by how beautiful they have made the Disqus comments look. If you like the site, you should read about the new site on Think Vitamin.

I think I'll just quote Jason Kottke here: "Want to see the state of the art in web design using web fonts and Typekit? Check out Lost World's Fairs. It's all good, but Frank Chimero really knocked it out of the park with the 1962 Atlantis World's Fair. With HTML5 and web fonts, experimentation with web design seems open and fun again; reminds me of the 90s a bit." Via Kottke.

If you're into fancy, experimental interfaces, Nikola Arežina and Ina Rančić perfectly executed this web based fashion collection showroom without the use of Flash. They also had good help from the beautiful clothes and photos. The color scheme is amazing.
