Everything about this site screams HIP, really knowing its target audience. The repetition of the colors from the Polaroid logo through out the site real hold the site together. All of the marketing photos have the same feel, which provides a great feel while clicking through the different pages.

A great use of many interactive elements to present information. In terms of a site that aims to encourage learning for adults, this hits the nail right on the head. The one big drawback to the site is that it does have to spend a lot of time loading so anything less than a great internet connection will cause problems for the user and may even push the user away from the site.
Everything about this landing page is magnificent. There are tiny, discover-able elements to interact with. The typography and the shapes are a delight. Visually the interior pages also look stunning, once you get past the drab typography there.
There is a trend for more interactive landing pages. This is my favorite example. The way it looks like the cursor is drawing on the site is great. I also love the logo. The rest of the site, unfortunately, is not much to talk about.
Another fantastic one pager. The way the text and the images interact as the user scrolls is beautiful. The photos used for this architecture site are incredible.

I am a big fan of the landing page here. The intermixing of the different rectangles is very interesting. After that though the rest of the site seems to fall apart. There is needlessly center-aligned text further down the landing page. On some of the interior pages the overlapping rectangle motif falls apart.
It seems as if Swiss Design influence is dominating the internet these days. The use of motion and video on this site is amazing. The homepage is gorgeous and the reveal of the rest of the contend as you scroll is kind of incredible. The animated transitions from page to page are also striking. This may be my favorite site so far.
