Would you like to say something?

  1. 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!

  2. Russell Bishop says:

    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?

  3. Tom Siodlak says:

    Great collection. (:

  4. Elyse Hutchinson says:

    This is a great collection of site design!

  5. Ben says:

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

  6. Lime Web Design says:

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

  7. Julien says:

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

  8. Anna says:

    Amazing showcase, so inspired!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Jiri Vizdal says:

    Good man! :-)

  12. Jim Harrer says:

    Excellent round-up. Worth a bookmark for sure!

  16. Chris Wallace says:

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

  17. Kojo Amoako says:

    Solid compilation!

  18. 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!!!

  19. @T_Hope says:

    Excuse me while I drool. *wipes lip* This list is dope!

  20. 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.

  21. Leigh Adnett says:

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