Who designed etoro.com, mint.com or vark.com?

We are looking to launch a web business later this year.

We are currently in the design phase, and have been using etoro, mint.com and vark.com as examples of 'what good looks like'.  Quite honestly, our designs so far have not been close to the etoro site, both in terms of user experience and look-and-feel.
 
Could someone point me in the direction of the agencies which designed the original etoro, mint and Aardvark sites.  There could be some work coming their way...
 
Many thanks in advance for any help on this

FW: [IxDA] How do you scale great UI design?

Hi Russ, I'd like to build on what both Chauncey and Alan suggested. That is, I’d recommend taking a lightweight stakeholder-centric approach to: . per Chauncey, promote and position great UI design . per Alan, utilize your designers as agents of change, modeling new role, positioning design for more impact

Without knowing much about your company’s culture or readiness for change, here's a possible approach to consider: . Use your designers' skills to employ a customer research approach to identify your stakeholders, prioritizing the few stakeholders critical to your success.

Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated over the coming few days. Groups may be contacted for clarification of their proposal, but material changes to the submission will not be permitted.

RE: [IxDA] How do you scale great UI design?

Russ,

Are you talking about maintaining consistency of a single UI standard across 100s of apps? Or are you talking about how do you get independent design teams to all create good UI design even though their UIs might be different?

Annotations template (or UI components) for PowerPoint

I am in need of a template (or stencils) for a project that requires annotations to be done in PowerPoint. I would need UI components that would usually be part of a wireframe set that includes labels and notes.

Does anyone know where I can find one?

Thanks
