45Royale.com: A Creative Agency Doing Design Right

It’s really hard to get a handle on just how many agency websites are out there. Some days I’m truly shocked at the sheer quantity of them—it’s a monster category with room for all ranges of work.

One agency you will love to hate is 45royale. Their work is epic, gorgeous and inspiring … and their website is nothing short of the same.

The clean style, clear messaging and great flow of the website presents this creative agency in a top-notch, professional way. I’m always amazed to see how compelling a simple, clean site can be. So often our instincts gravitate toward the complex—thematic or technical—when a clean, elegant design is all we need.

Better yet, a design like this appears somewhat timeless, classic. (I say “somewhat” because it will no doubt feel dated at some point.) But I guarantee it will far outlast any trendy thematic design with a crazy interface.
