First of all, we would like to wish a Happy New Year to all of our readers! And to start 2013, we decided to gather some of the most appreciated designs we showcased here in 2012. We gathered the designs our readers most talked about, and we did this huge list to show you what we and our readers considered the best web designs of last year. The sites we will show here were featured because of use of textures, images, typography, navigation and much more. So take your time and browse through these designs to see what was memorable in 2012.

Looks like minimal was the top web design trend of 2012. Do you think it will continue throughout 2013 or do you see any new trends appearing?
Great list. Thanks Gisele for sharing.
I found Simple, Clean, Minimal, Responsive and Yes, Retina Ready Web with more white spaces are the top web design trend of 2012.
Wow. All great examples of incredibly clean design. I was going to pick a favorite, but it would easily be a mile long. I agree with Mike – minimal is definitely trending. I don’t think it’s going anywhere, either.
I was going to pick a favorite,great collection !
thanks for sharing!
Great compilation Gisele. You’ve included a good mix of website styles there. I agree with Sovit and Michael, the minimalist style sites are great. I especially like the sites that incorporate great photography and/or graphics. A clean site with awesome photos or vector art will never go out of style.
A great compilation, thanks! Looking forward to seeing what 2013 brings. Happy new year 😀
I like your web design compilation for 2012! I think 2013 will be much better than 2012.. 🙂
I really like “Everything you need to know about Design”
2012 was a great year for web designers. There are hundreds of sites published in last year which are impossible to publish all here. Looking forward what big things come up in 2013.
Studio Airport is listed twice. 🙂
Aw inspiring list of web design and creativity. In 2012 we have seen more creativity using less space and more functionality. Personally I like Studio Airport.
Inspiring! Let’s see what 2013 brings. Personally I like rule of three
Thanks a lot!
I love http://www.fe-el.com

Oh, I love the beard website that’s awesome!
We actually just launched an updated form of our own website that you can find here: http://www.theedesign.com/
Hopefully we’ll be in the 2013 version!
Great list. Looking forward to the 2013 collection!
Love the designs…so inspiring. Thanks for the post!
