Digital Marketing Agency Websites

10 of the best digital agency websites

However, there are plenty of good agency websites out there. We chose 10 of them.

Most are from Econsultancy’s Top 100 Agencies Report (free download), which has a UK flavor, although many are international. Am I an expert in web design? Not really, but I’ve shown my work below…

1. Made by many

Made by Many has an incredibly clean website. The abstract, circular shapes (some subtly animated) and the dialogic version give the agency a warm and friendly feel.There is also a newsletter subscription not to be missed. It’s not uncommon to see one of these very prominent on an agency website, but it’s definitely a good idea, to sway those who might (one day) consider recruiting a new agency.

A social style notification in the header list alerts visitors to job openings – a smart way to catch the attention of potential talent:

2. Stink Studios

The Stink Studios website exudes the same kind of cool you get from the infrequent fashion magazines you see in newsstands with titles like “The Gentlewoman” or “sum zine”.

There’s confidence in typography, white space above the page, and no flaunting of any scrolling trickery. It looks great on mobile too. The Stink Group used to consist of Stink Films, Stinkdigital, and Stinkstudios but at the beginning of 2017, the latter two were merged together.

It is important that the word “digital” disappears. On the website itself, you’re not bombarded with digital, the work speaks for itself, and happens to include digital assets.

Stink-Studios-Home

Scroll down quickly on your News, Business or Contacts pages and see how well the photos perform in their slow load. Beautiful squares in pastel gradient colors patiently wait for their images to be overlayed, which means the page looks great whether the images are loaded or not.

sBy scrolling down any page, you can move your mouse to the left margin and the header menu will appear under the left side, so you can move around without having to scroll back to the top.

3. Be heard

Be Heard exudes confidence through the use of harsh fonts and tightly packed images on her website. The homepage itself is full of personality, with portraits and handwriting of individual employees forming a busy backdrop against the details of their recent projects. The company logo has been animated to click through some of the handwriting samples as well.

The Work section of their site has a lot of features. There are several color square pictures side by side without padding, which shows how many projects they were involved in. Hover over each of them to find out more.

4. Sagemeister Walsh

If you are a Sagmeister & Walsh customer, you can simply visit the agency’s homepage to check if the staff is working hard. Yes, the home page is a direct video from the agency’s offices.

The website, which has a lot of black and white fonts, and the ‘plain text’ font looks basic at first glance – just look at the ‘Services’ and ‘Customers’ sections on the About page below.

However, the agency, which has a heritage in typography and identity design, is fairly clear that it only brings out her ridiculously confident personality.

In the “News” and “Business” sections of the site, color prevails last, and in general you will feel a luxury brand (in fact, the agency worked with many luxury clients).

By clicking on the individual case studies, the images are presented really well, and the way they fill the page makes it look like you’re scrolling through a coffee table book.

The design is left to speak for itself, with a bit of accompanying text unless you click to see the project info.

5. It’s Friday

Typography dominates the We Are Friday website, squeezing to the left edge of the screen to create an immersive—and decidedly assertive—home page.

Then, most of the subpages have the same line that scrolls across the screen; Another thoughtful touch brings the entire website together.

However, perhaps the best part of this site can be found all the way down. Web page footers are often simple, boring, and overlooked. Not here – each page has a different, beautifully illustrated footer highlighting the agency’s contact details. Excellent use of space.

6. Inviqa

We all know bright colors are in vogue when it comes to web design, but Inviqa takes it to the next level, which is pretty cool. Get your sunglasses now…

The geometric pattern runs through many of the visual aspects of the site, drawing attention to the particularly important pieces of information that you need to know.

The attention to detail and consistency of the color palette on this site is a joy to look at and scream “fun” and “creative.”

7. Bolden

Netherlands-based Bolden has a quirky, explanatory homepage that adapts to the weather and time of day at your location. Although he is a little off topic, it is fun to interact with him and make him unforgettable.

It is raining at the time of writing in London.

It’s a clear night in Mexico City.

Finally, Bolden calls out the coolest “About” page in the group, starting with a simple list of each cast member’s names.

8. Code

Code is another agency with great color and chunky typography. Started out as a minimally viable product by the agency (to ensure a commitment to continuous development), this site is very easy to navigate and does the job you feel any small independent agency should do.

Writing clear and simple ads.

The What We Do page contains specialties divided into categories, with call-to-action buttons that power email correspondences.

9. Red Badger

Red Badger uses a very limited color palette of gray, black, yellow, and red to great effect. Unlike some of the websites on this list, their homepage doesn’t overwhelm visitors with bright colors, huge text, and lots of photography. Instead, it focuses solely on transcription, including some interesting statistics that highlight measurable results from recent projects.

Topical illustrations are scattered throughout the site, which add character and gentle, friendly humor.

This joke can also be found in the About Us section of the Red Badger website, where you can learn more about Milo Castro, Office Dog and Cardboard Box Shredder. Super cute.

10. dogstudio

Last time on the list is the Belgian Dog Studio. The reason we’re adding here is the way the work is presented on the homepage – you click on it and you go to the actual client website (designed by dogstudio), rather than a long case study page.

We love this idea (which opens in a new tab) because it encourages co-working, and it cuts down on marketing jargon.

There are some pictures that are not mounted on the wall and copied too.

And a very creative contact page. I’ve only captured one example in the GIF below, but the message here spins at least 20 times, and contains some weird, maybe even inappropriate sentences (“If you like spanking grandmothers..”).

And on that note, we’ve come to the end of our list.
