Today we decided to gather a new list to show how some design agencies and studios are presenting themselves to the audience.

Here you will see different examples, from clean and minimal sites to colorful and illustrated ones, there are a lot of ways to go to present your agency/studio.

    There are some fantastic websites here. They all deserve to be showcased. I love Owl Concepts. The background is amazing and I love the use of HTML5. The ‘Our team’ section of Sajak&Farki is really quirky. Others I like are Twofold, Dynamit and Favolla, all are going to be great for future inspiration.

    Seems like a lot of these websites have stuck with a simple formula that works — using a big focal point — whether it’s an illustration, huge graphic text or a swath of color. Great design work!
