Editor's Pick

The Martin Agency has created a beautifully designed website to celebrate its 50th annniversary. The site lets you explore the agency's work, origins and history using a responsive timeline that expands when you click on a key period.

The clever design is based on the insight that a thread runs through everything it has done, from its early years as a local Virginia shop to national success and then global expansion. From its first ever ads for clients like Virginia Tourism to its recent famous work for the likes of Geico, this is a treasure trove of Martin history -- and a snapshot of the history of the industry too. The "thread" theme follows that also featured in a 50th anniversary book the agency also created.
