Niche Nuggets: 24 Inspiring SaaS Website Designs

Software as a Service has become a popular and common delivery model for most business applications. Software and data are centrally located, typically in a cloud, and are normally accessed by users with a web browser over the internet.

Great Design and Development Studio Team Pages

When you’re in the service industry there are only a couple of pages more important on your website than your team page.

Despite living in a digital world, were we often don’t meet the people we work with in person anymore, people still want to see who they’ll be working. The team page on your website is a great opportunity to show your team individuality, and maybe what tips the client to hiring your team.

Often the team pages are hidden inside an “About” section, but should much more prominent in my opinion.

In this post I’ve collected some great team pages from design and development studios from around the global. Each provides a unique way of presenting their team to the world.
