MRA Group

MRA GroupIf this is a temporary site (which thay ALL are, aren't they!?) then we're not gonna hold our breath waiting for the full-blown site... Why? Because we can see right through this tongue and cheek attempt to be funny, styling, edgy, and full of attitude. Yep. We're calling you guys on it... 'cause we know there's no plans to make a new site at all! And that's funny part of this branding and advertising firm... they're actually trying to make their site appear incomplete. Kudos for that.... More

Wieden + Kennedy

Wieden + KennedyIn what represents an enourmous design and IA effort, the new Wieden + Kennedy site attempts to catalog all of their projects in a sort of "Lost in Space" timeline and data structure. In the end, the site is rather hard to navigate, but the "yo-factor" of this site is quite impressive... at least it will be for a couple more months. What's really impressive is simply the fact that they've done so much work, they need to create an overarching data-mining scheme just to cover it all. Certainly much more of a marketing and promotional site than anything else, it achieves that goal by stating rather plainly, "Hey, we are bigger than planet Earth—our portfolio reaches into space!"....

FutureBrand

FutureBrand WorldwideFutureBrand doesnít ask whether itís possible or not, but rather how to make the product and how to make it BETTER. And their projects run the entire range from the branding of colossal city projects, to banks, consumer goods and beauty products. With this worldwide, think-tank of a company that caters to clients such as Nissan, Exxon, Dove and DuPont, as well as the Dubai Waterfront project and the Mexican Tourism Board, that super cool thing that we all thought would never come into existence just might!...

Duffy and Partners

Duffy and PartnersBrand building, packaging and identity work; Minneapolis style. That's what you'll get from Duffy and Partners, a well established and awarded branding firm whose recent work has included rebranding the Islands of Bahamas, as well as identities for Toyota Trucks, and new packaging for Fresca. Clients know what to expect when coming here, but in out opinion, some the styles and designs in the portfolio have a slighty dated feel—like an ad agency that was huge in the 90's but still hasn't fully lost its tendency towards using quirky character illustrations of the era....

Colle+McVoy

Colle McVoyColle+McVoy, located in the capital of the advertising state (Minneapolis, MN, of course!), is a prime example that you don't have to be a small firm to maintain a quirky, fun, and personable approach to design. In fact, they've made a rather large business out of staying true to "small-studio" style designs, using guerrila and non-traditional marketing as one of their many creative outlets. Great, youthful approach to a site for an ad agency that employs 170 creatives (2007), and was founded in 1935.... More

Mark Yeo

Mark YeoLike a young Samson in his prime, apparently this young art directors true strength comes directly from his finely coiffed hair. And his clients can relate, because most of his advertising and editorial designs are made for the fashion and high-end luxury fields. His art and layouts of advertising pages have been in the pages of numerous magazines, such as Esquire, Zest, Good Housekeeping and while in Singapore, he conceptualized, designed and art directed covers for Elle Magazine, Cleo and Woman's Weekly. So don't mess with Mark's "do", lest you spoil the perfect balance of art and design.... More

MetaDesign

MetaDesignWhen it boils down to the science of branding, design systems and business strategy, there are few that hold a torch up to bright light that is MetaDesign. Stationed in San Francisco, Meta eats, sleeps and breathes clean, pure and practical design systems. From the ground up, or laterally and vertically, MetaDesign helps moves business into the future through top notch branding. Excellent company site (since last time that we looked), with a very minimal, and close-to-the-vest portfolio.... More

Their specialties in consulting, strategy and marketing help big firms find hidden strengths and maximize potential, while avoiding hidden (or obvious) pitfalls.

Studio Output

Studio OutputAn excellent design portfolio of a print, graphics and identity design firm. Although they do not specialize in web design, they had their friends (AllofUs.org) put together a truly magnificent minimal Flash portfolio that really puts the ideas and work first. Yes, the graphic design campaigns inside are excellent, yet its even easier to appreciate because the site makes you read (and think) a little first, instead of just quick-clicking through everything. Very nice indeed.... More

And they have created such "positive changes" for a number of large clients, just as they also graciously make efforts to do pro-bono work with companies making positive social contributions. Truly, and literally, a nice branding agency.... More
