Design and marketing agency websites rely on a rather mixed bag of tricks. One that we seldom see is an insanely trimmed-down and clean approach as you see in this case. On the surface they initially feel like a tiny two-person shop. Yet their sales pitch is compelling, and most importantly their homepage portfolio piece is epic. Who gets to do the redesign of a site like Ebay? Apparently, these guys do. This site is the virtual equivalent of the shy genius in a trivia game, letting others have fun; if you bother to focus on them you will find an incredible body of work, like an unassuming giant that doesn’t need sizzle to sell their goods.
