Our client’s challenge:

Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ), a leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm, sought a new website that would set it apart from its competition. Through the Scott Design discovery process, we concluded that the new site should project DFJ’s global presence, segment the information on the site so different audiences can quickly access the information they seek, and have a look that reflects DFJ’s innovation and success.

The Scott Design solution:

Scott Design presented DFJ with several designs from which to choose, all meeting the requirements we developed during the discovery phase. The award-winning website featured interactive cards that provided visitors quick and visually compelling ways to find information about DFJ team members, investments, and partner funds. Each page included additional information in sections that could be opened or closed, allowing visitors to tailor the information they saw.

“Working with Scott Design was a pleasure. They were efficient and kept my time to a minimum. Their design is bold, new, and portrays our message and our brand as if it came straight from our heads, only with more impact. It is light years better than anything any of our competitors have. They worked with our team as though they had been a part of it for years. The experience was the smoothest we have ever had with any outside vendor.” —Tim Draper, Founder and Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
