Site of the Day:

Scott Riley portfolio website

When I present these Site of the Day reviews to you, I sometimes struggle to know what to highlight in a design. I tend to gravitate to extreme samples that have something clear and prominent to talk about. This example, however, is just freaking awesome. It’s gorgeous, uses beautiful type, has a clear and useful hierarchy, is easy to browse, easy to get sucked in and all around a great representation of the designer’s mad skills. So, yeah, I like the design. In particular, I really appreciate the clear communication and lack of trendy crap. It’s just a beautiful design that has been refined to perfection.
