11. Big Fan
A small creative studio based in Bristol, Big Fan has an impressive portfolio of web design work. We love the site and related branding it created for Dish Up – a BBC campaign intended to entice us back into the kitchen by taking a fresh look at recipes. This fun, family friendly design is perfect for that message.

He started working in the design industry as a print designer, but discovered a passion for code and all things tech – and is now especially passionate about web standards, progressive enhancement and responsive design.
Although Davis might not have as many followers or appreciations as some others featured in this list, we've fallen in love with his web design style.

Formerly based in Falmouth, Cornwall, and now working in New York, Andrew Couldwell is a digital designer, web developer, curator and founder of Club Of The Waves. He's currently working as principal designer in the digital department at WeWork, NYC.
We love the direct yet still cool effect of the above environmental campaign, which Couldwell developed for UK charity, Surfers Against Sewage. The aim was to create a simple, responsive website that raised awareness of the issue of sewage being pumped into our seas.

We suggest you check out his web design for Life in my Shoes, pictured above. The attention to detail is amazing.
19. Andreas Leah
New York based Andreas Leah is a digital designer and art director working for agencies worldwide. His recent revamp of Rihanna's website is a great example of the power of simple design and colour use. Leah utilises the contrast of black and white, with highlights – such as the menu option users are hovering over – in red across the website. Very slick.

He's also worked on a number of e-commerce websites, including Minim and Böll Fashion.
