  21. Leigh Adnett says:

    Nice Collection Chris… Hope to see posts like this in the new year !!

    Keep them coming !

  22. Dan N says:

    Stunning collection Chris! If I had to pick my favorite, it would be New Adventures in Web Design. The little effect they added with the shapes on each page is awesome.

    I wish I knew how to do something like that.

  23. Great list, how come http://www.skittles.com missed this? Or is it from 2009 #kindaforgot

  24. Dave says:

    There are a few great sites listed but many are average. The best of 2010?.. I don't think so.

  25. Ben Carlson says:

    This just confirms that I'm a developer, not a designer… nice list!

  26. Anderson says:

    Nice list! Thanks God that the Web is bigger than us… Design and WebDesign is something very, very particular… sometimes even selfish and egocentric. It is good to have so many examples of art and usable things. Congratulations!!!

  27. Max says:

    Thank you so much for including our site http://ideaware.co on this list!

  28. Kojo Amoako says:

    Solid compilation!

  29. Wow, thanks for including Lift in the list! Much appreciated!

  30. Edwin says:

    Thank you for listing us on your website. We appreciate it and look forward to creating more cool stuff in 2011.

  31. Jan Cavan says:

    Chris, thank you for including <a href="http://www.dawghousedesignstudio.com"&gt; on this list :)

  32. Benjine says:

    Thanks, very inspirational!

  33. Jim Harrer says:

    Excellent round-up. Worth a bookmark for sure!

  34. Frank says:

    Great! They all look exactly the same.

  35. El Conquistadore says:

    They could all have been made in the last 5 years. Sadly, there is nothing original in that bunch :(

  36. Greg says:

    Sad that 75% of these are for the sites of designers/web-dev shops. Would love if actual clients wanted new and innovative designs.

  37. David says:

    Next time, I would love to see a list of websites that are not portfolio websites or selling apps. I want to see how talented designers come up with solutions in meeting the demands and requirements of large content-driven or community-building websites. It's understandably easier to create beautiful websites when a designer only has one objective to consider and has the liberty to control every aspect of the site. It's considerably easier to design a beautiful website that has 10-20 pages than a website that has high traffic volume and update frequency. Your list is great, nonetheless.

  38. Anna says:

    Amazing showcase, so inspired!

  39. Julien says:

    I don't see any "best website design" here…

  40. Awesome List. 2010 brought some slick designs to the world. Thanks for your awesome post this year Chris

  41. Ben says:

    Great roundup of the year Chris and thanks again for including our humble site, there truly are some awesome sites in there.

  42. Ron says:

    Have a look at http://www.frei-berlin.tv as well – it´s worth appearing in this list :-)

  43. This is a great collection of site design!

  44. Tom Siodlak says:

    Great collection. (:

  45. There is some wonderful work here, but I notice that most of them isn't work for clients… just portfolios and studios?

    Shouldn't this contain quite a lot more work that's been produced for the clients of those companies?

  46. Joel Skotak says:

    Great collection! I especially enjoyed the Foundation Six Web Design Studio website. Great use of typography. Clean and simple design, and most importantly easy for the viewer to navigate!

    Thanks for the post!
