It may not apply to all things in life, but in design, limitations exist and there are always opportunities to work within them beautifully. Proving this, when it comes to tight spaces, pixel-wielding designers have a history of working with what they have to churn out surprising results — at least, that’s what we’ve found from observing Web design over the years.

Working at such a tiny level while keeping things instantly recognizable and clean is no easy feat, and so we gathered together this set of particularly gorgeous work to inspire you. Check them out (some are giveaways) and then let us know if you have any favorites in the comments below!
