Favourite Websites of 2014

September 24, 2014 |

At SGD we like to see web developers push the boundaries of both design and functionality. It’s what gets our blood pumping and inspires us to new heights! We think TIME Magazine did a really good job of finding the 50 Best Websites of 2014 and breaking each one down into how it works and what makes it unique. Some of our favourites from the list are:

Vox

If you find yourself confused about trending, complex news topics, Vox is a great starting point. After gaining an understanding of the basics on Vox, you can then move on to mainstream news articles.
