Design Nut's site acts not only as a showcase of its vast portfolio of work, but
as the most complete marketing tool to communicate the company's style,
capabilities, and experience. The site combines both fun and professionalism —
in the opening animation, color palette, writing style, and work samples — to
give the viewer a clear picture of Design Nut's philosophy: Certifiably Creative.
All objectives are repeatedly met — clients and prospects frequently comment on
the ease of use (it's both friendly and user-friendly), as well as the

etc). DesignNut.com is the perfect tool, serving as both introduction to and
reminder of the firm's quality and quantity of successful and award-winning work.
