Out of over 50 nominations, we have narrowed the field down to the ten best. There were many good nominations, but the top ten are some really excellent, responsive websites.
Responsive web design turned out to play a big factor in getting to the top ten. A responsive website should look good on any screen, from a big desktop display to a smartwatch. Law firm websites still have a way to go on this, though. Many great-looking nominations — including some websites built in the last year — wound up in the discard pile because they are not responsive.
Apart from responsiveness, however, I will not explain the criteria I used to pick these ten websites. Great website design is in the eye of the beholder, and it is up to you to take a look and decide which you like best, according to whatever criteria is meaningful to you. Lobby for your favorites in the comments, or tell us why we’ve done a horrible job coming up with this year’s top ten.
