Minneapolis, September 3, 2019 – MVP Marketing + Design, Inc., a Minneapolis Digital Marketing Agency and website design firm, is proud to report that the Communicator Awards recognized three distinctive websites for their state-of-the-art designs in financial services.

Websites Financial Services: Svoboda Capital

Based in Chicago, Svoboda is a private equity firm with over $400 million of capital under management. Attention getting video on the homepage shows the partners of the firm collaborating and MVP also shot plenty of crisp photography to give the site an authentic look that is much more engaging than stock images. Dynamic deal statistics harness that same energy of motion. And the design elements are balanced with plenty of white space to keep browsing restful and intuitive. The end result is effortless professionalism that draws in business owners, management teams and investment bankers from coast to coast.

Websites Financial Services: Merit Capital

Another Chicago private equity firm, has raised $2.2 billion through six institutionally sponsored limited partnerships, won honors with a site that positions Merit as professional but approachable partners. Downtown “Board of Trade” photography captures beautiful Windy City architecture with cool colors that are introduced to Merit’s red. Modern fonts and hover animation complete the look that reflects trust and experience.

Websites Financial Services: Prestwick Partners

Prestwick Partners has authored over 100 M&A transactions since 1995. The imagery on the site is a combination of dramatic Minneapolis views and on-site photography that capture Prestwick’s unique place and value proposition. Clean lines and minimal copy optimize user experience. And versatile, modern fonts and a variety of custom icons add an extra dash of personality.

All of the sites function flawlessly across mobile devices and the MVP-customized WordPress content management system (CMS) means that the clients will be able to add content, even entire sections, with minimal training.
