Styleboost is finally back. And to kick it all off, I present to you the spectacular redesign of Squarespace. It looks gorgeous as always, but there are two aspects of the new site that are especially interesting: 1) It hides away the navigation on all platforms — not only on mobile, and 2) it confronts the user with "stories" that are basically the first step in setting up your own site on Squarespace. Clever, pretty and edgy all in one package, what's not to like?

iPhone app teaser websites come a dime a dozen. iPhone app teaser websites of this calibre however are much, much harder to come by. Scrolling this site is so enjoyable that I think it's right to compare it to the spectacular and very successful Ben the Bodyguard site. Seldom has a small project like developing a teaser site been turned into such a wonderful result. Great work by Image Mechanics.

Push Pop Press is a new digital publishing platform that's attempting to redefine the way we publish and experience books. Quite a bold ambition for a small startup. Judging by their first publication however — Al Gore's "Our Choice" — I think they've built the best platform of its kind to date. Never has an interactive book felt this intuitive, fun and user friendly. UI Designer Mike Matas explained the platform in a little more detail in a recent TED talk. Lest not forget that they've done a damn fine job with the website as well.

The redesigned online presence of Teehan+Lax here is such a great site in so many ways. For one, even the cutting edge use of the html5 video tag as a background element is elegantly responsive. The site is simple throughout, but this is definitely not "boring" or "cheap" simple. It is a top notch site clearly among the most wonderful of its kind anywhere on the web. Jaw-dropping. Via @mdo.

Rome: "3 Dreams of Black" is an ambitious interactive film made by Chris Milk with help from Google. The project was made as a Chrome experiment to show off the power of WebGL, basically enabling hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in the web browser without a plug-in. It's very impressive technologically and a mesmerizing beauty to behold. And they have done a good job of sharing the code and explaining the basics behind the development.

Climate Wisconsin is probably my favorite site from the first month of 2011. A very important factor behind my proclamation of love for this project is the way that high quality video productions are used throughout the site. If you're very talented and manage to combine video productions and web design of this quality you may get lucky and create a killer site like this one maybe once in a decade.

We Dance to the Beat is actually a site on its own, but located on [the awesome Swedish artist] Robyn's website. Create your own beat and share it with your friends. The retro C64-ish look and feel goes great with the music. This retro site is really a stunner visually. Via @ALmendili.

If you've ever done any kind of development for iOS, you're very likely to have run into the excellent and free GUI PSDs Teehan+Lax have created for iPhone and iPad. Last week, the Canadian user experience specialists launched an iPad app for consuming the good stuff on Twitter in the best possible way.

This here is not my all time favorite website. Still, I think this site does one quite amazing thing that deserves your attention. The main navigation on the home page is made up of a a live webcam. What a great touch. This is art. Via @romaincolin.

Irrland is a science/art project by Sebastian Waters und Patrick Beser taking place all over Ireland. This is also the most ambitious and experimental design of a Tumblog I've ever seen. The interface isn't perfect, but it's well worth a closer look. They've done some wonderful work in the details.
