As we move into the New Year, it is a important to review what happened in the design community in 2011. However, unlike usual surveys, I will do so by reviewing the notable designs of the year. Although it’s impossible to review all the designs from 2012—I don’t claim to do so either—I’ve tried to select the best from deeply reviewed designs (approximately 2,000 designs) by considering different factors, include beauty, functionality, usability, and so forth. As these selected websites are from different categories and types, this survey could be regarded as a comprehensive overview.

I hope this provides you with a beneficial collection that inspires you to design new websites while revealing trends and designers’ tendencies in recent months. Finally, don’t fort to share with us designs that you think are inspirational for others and should be included on this list.
