  2. Wild Eagle Design

    I actually was not impressed. I thought the work of the individual people are nice, but their websites seemed out dated and way behind.

    I guess I was expecting to be blown away from what the title said. Again nice work of individual projects, but their website not are boring.

    Yeah I’m not impressed by these designs. I think that’s what Wild Eagle was trying to say too. They are all just bland, uninspiring and it’s not like many of those haven’t been done before, although I did like the Warehouse 21 site though! Nifty!
