Recently redesigned by Mike Kus. Emphasis on textures and illustration, with big friendly typography. Translation of a gift card to the modern web.

I LOVE the GiftRocket website design. It really comes strong with the illustrations which set the tone so well and just pull you in. It’s fun and inviting first and foremost which is a must for this type of service. There’s a nice sense of humanity to it which carries you through it.

From a purely design standpoint it’s extremely thorough, each page is a unique experience and from a highly comparative angle on this if the subpages have this much attention paid to them then I can’t wait to experience the service.

Just a solid piece of work from top to bottom.
