    Examples of good corporate sites

    I'm interested in examples of corporate web sites that have somehow managed to jump out of the 'we must be conservative and corporate' frame of mind to become something that is both a great design and functional.

    As an example, the National Trust is a great-looking site, uses some great imagery, but it is still a 'serious' business. Well, perhaps not a business as such, but you get the idea.

    So, what corporate sites float your boat?

    That National Trust site is great looking. This one is a law firm. Not as original as the National Trust site, but for a law firm it's pretty original. Anyway, I just liked it:

    I don't deny that it's a good job, but that's not the kind of corporate I'm after. What I mean is, this is undoubtedly a coroporate venture, but it's a 'lifestyle' venture - they have to look trendy.

    I guess what I'm thinking is corporates that might normally present themselves in a dry manner, e.g financial, industrial, high-tech, law - you catch my drift? I want to find out about a law firm in Michigan that wasn't afraid to use bold colours and a flash navigation system, or a pharmaceuticals company that went for a design for its annual report and accounts that suggested they were taking too much of their own medication at the time

    Anyway, over to you SitePointers again ...

    Just trying to get more feedback, so please folks, send in some nominations for good corporates. Don't want this thread to die before it's even had a chance to blossom ...

    More corporates I like, as an example:

    http://creative.gettyimages.com/source/home/home.asp
    http://www.apple.com/ (surprise, surprise)
    http://www.overture.com/

    Thanks

    You can argue that Apple is a 'lifestyle' venture and has to look trendy same as Nike.
