The race for Site of the Month, February has been one of the most closely fought battles in a very long time. Finally, by a handful of votes, Flat Design vs Realism by Argentinean agency, Intacto, was pipped to the post by Huge, an inspirational agency from New York.
A sophisticated piece of work, to say the least, with strong foundations of user experience, a stunning typeface, refined code, and an overall attractive visual content which perfectly highlights the creative integration of the corporate image throughout the case studies of their most recent projects.
