The Lab's Best of 2010

I know this is almost a full month late, but I sat on this for a while, wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it or not. There has been more then a dozen “Best of 2010” lists post, I thought I would get in and have some fun as well.

The great advantage of a post like this is to have a solid bookmark of inspiration. Having one post that I can return to – to be inspired is quite handy. These websites all were once featured on our Friday Fix, and I think deserved to be on this years greatest hits. I will assume, unless you were stranded out at sea – you have seen these great examples of design.

2010 was a great year for design, the emergence of Dribbble and (my favourite) Forrst, the influence of portable devices, HTML5 and CSS3 proved to push web design to a new era. Interface and user design has really taken center stage, with mobile devices displaying websites, designers have really turned web design into a much better user experience.
