So many young designers have asked how they can impress me. I always tell them that Photoshop pyrotechnics are a ton of fun, but that I am most impressed by what a designer can do with the basics of great design, items like layout, typography, balance, color and image. Those principles are what makes this set of designs compelling in their bold and elegant simplicity.
Built on stalwart Midwestern values and a commitment to great service, Scottrade has a corporate culture that is truly unique. Recipient of numerous awards for that culture including a spot on FORTUNE magazine’s coveted “100 Best Companies to Work For” list and always looking for new talent worldwide, Scottrade knew it needed a better way to communicate it’s essence to prospects everywhere. This initiative is designed to convey both the “tangible” and “intangible” aspects of what it means to work at the financial services company. This site has been taken through a full interactive user-testing design cycle, always my preference.
