50 Fresh Interactive Studio and Social Media Agency Websites

November 18th, 2009

By Catalin Zorzini

As you might observe, social marketing is the new black. Tons of studies predict huge budgets for social media strategies from the top shots, so the agencies need to sharpen their interactive skills in order to separate clients from their money. Lots of big advertising and PR networks created digital marketing divisions but given the fact that this is such a fresh trend, the independent studios have almost the same chances to land a big contract if they’re creative enough.

Long story short, here is a showcase of 50 outstanding websites of digital marketing agencies, interactive advertising studios and online PR bureaus. The majority follows the trends of modern web design – wide layout, projects carousel, text over images, crisp textures in the background, large headers, homepage smooth animations, and – of course – integrated Twitter & Facebook functionalities.

As usual, please share your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.

No-doubt the freshness and inspiration is killing on above mention examples.
We can study on the user experience, objects and color schemes. The basic common thing in all the above examples are the ideas and illustration graphics that sells the services of agencies,

Exactly the kind of resource I was looking for! Great list of websites. It still amazes me though, how many agencies build their sites around design aesthetics rather than customer experience.

This sites are so cool, great collection. We at the social media agency believe in the revolution. We as humans believe that engaging with other humans online is only natural. The problem is that most companies don’t understand what Social Media is about. Any how I got out of context, lol. Great Work and keep it up.

I like lists like these, as they are more about the creative than the popularity. We were in the middle of a redesign when you published this, but maybe you can take us into consideration for next time! room214.com

Thanks!

This is a super helpful entry. I am in the process of starting my own web design company and it is great to see a compilation of a few of the better agency sites. Although Laird & Partners, The brpr Group, Victor & Spoils or Crispin, Porter + Bugusky all have excellent websites I think. They were not listed or any of some of the great agency sites out of Sweden. Thanks for the offering though for sure!

Would you like to add a thousand targeted fan’s to your client’s companies Facebook page?

I work with Fan collect on Facebook. It was built because more and more companies are using social media as part of their direct marketing for 2011 and understand that adding additional fan’s helps to spread their visibility in the market.

I would love to be able to be a add on to your already strong media capabilities you can offer to your clients.

Contact me directly if I can explain in further detail.
