Welcome to the latest edition of our top 20 sites of the month. In this February’s collection, the overall feel is lighthearted and optimistic, as we are seeing the positivity of a new year persisting across the web.

20 Best New Websites, February 2022.

There is a continued inclination towards warmth and personableness and away from a more corporate, impersonal feel. We see this most in the color palettes used and in the use of illustrations as accents to add character and charm. Of course, as always, type plays a big part too. Enjoy!

Woset

Woset has a simple aesthetic and features a charming illustration style on this site for its creative toys. The interactive ‘play’ section is a nice touch.

Graza

This site for Graza olive oil has a fun feel, with comic style illustration and bright splashes of color while making a serious sales pitch.

KeepGrading

KeepGrading is a post-production color studio. Their portfolio site showcases a lot of work but keeps it well organized and pleasing to navigate.

Englobe

By using soft colors and slightly rounded type, Englobe has managed to portray a warm, friendly, and human aspect with this website, despite being a huge company.

Filtro

Filtro’s design is about as basic as it gets, and yet it has a certain charm to it.

Behold

Behold is a wildlife camera that is currently in development. This landing page does an excellent job of creating interest with just enough information.

Akua

Some rather sweet illustration work creates a good balance with technical information on this site for Akua kelp burgers.

National Museum of Mexican Art

A color scheme of warm, earthy tones and a carefully thought-out type pairing create an inviting presence for the National Museum of Mexican Art.

Ubac

This site for Ubac trainers feels clean and modern with some nice and mostly functional, scroll-activated animation.

Funny Water

The background gradient is really nicely done on Funny Water’s otherwise very minimal site.

DA

DA is a strategic branding, design, and advertising studio, and this site is a good, polished example of a site for such an agency. What stands out is the clever menu text.

Phil’s Finest

Phil’s Finest makes good use of color, oversized type, and occasional illustration mixed in among the well-styled photography.

Vaayu

Grey and black are enlivened by neon yellow in Vaayu’s minimalist, single-page presentation.

Emi Ozaki

Artist and illustrator Emi Ozaki has created a stylized phone interface for her portfolio site, which showcases her illustration aesthetic.

Engineered Floors

The home page scrolling is the centerpiece of Engineered Floors’ site, and it works especially well on mobile.

Hartzler Dairy

Hartzler Dairy goes for a nostalgic feel to match the company’s classic mid-20th century style branding.

Chubby Snacks

Chubby Snacks is PB&J in your pocket; it sells itself! Having said that, the site is pretty appealing in its own right.

Branded

Market research company Branded goes down the flat design road for this site, which could feel a little dated but actually works quite nicely here.

SOS Foods

SOS Foods is an excellent example of a responsible/sustainable goods site, with a design aesthetic aimed at the ethical consumer.

Crystal Construction Engineering

Some nice use of masonry-style layout and overlapping elements create space, but also a pleasing flow in this site for Crystal Construction Engineering.
