  2. kr says:

    IMO, the top website of 2011 is a close race between Nike Better World & Nest.

  3. Shaun Mclain says:

    Nice designs thanks for sharing.

  4. Lea says:

    My favourite is definitly the hungarian wines, no many fine details. great use of colour!

  5. Great! I was looking forward to this!

  6. Good examples of design for inspiration. Thank you!

  7. webdevcloud says:

    Great list. The Luxus site is a great design and good find by you. The Push site design is unique too.

  8. Vincent says:

    Very nice Inspiration!!

  9. Michael says:

    Very inspiring list Chris! Some of these are also my faves for 2011. Although, I am not sure I want to know how many sites you looked at to come up with this list. :-P

  10. Ithi says:

    I love Lost Type Co-op and Designers.mx not just because they looks amazing but i use them almost everyday. Great collection.

  11. These are great, but there are definitely more great designs that are lost in the web because of bad webmasters.

  12. Shkumbin Llullaku says:

    Great selection to incite inspiration, I adore Paperplane.

    Although I must say they resemble you're preferences :)

  13. Jordan Terry says:

    Sparkbox wins it for me! Not just because of the great design, but because of how they represent responsive design to the average Joe!

  14. Gethyn says:

    TwoFold is impressive – does it for me.

  15. Great collection. It seems minimalist design and a great use of graphics are the latest trend in excellent web design. If only it was easy for every Tom, Dick and Harry to put designs together like these.

  16. I love the end of the year and seeing all of the 2011 lists. This is one of the best! Thanks

  17. That Tower page is a really nice design. The developer can be proud of it. Really good job.

  18. CJ Spencer says:

    Thanks for putting Visua in your list dude, really means a lot :) Keep the lists comin' in 2012!

  19. Linh says:

    Nice collection! I am so glad I stumbled upon this list. Very inspiring. I especially love Push website because you can see the different layout for different type of devices. I am looking into making an website compatible with different devices so it's a great example.

  20. Julian says:

    Thanks for including Tower! All the best for 2012.
