About the Project

Gunderson Dettmer, the global leader in representing high-growth technology/life-sciences companies and venture capital firms, came to Great Jakes to create a site comparable to those of the firm's startup tech and investor clientele.

Key characteristics of the website include

  • Visually Impactful Client Stories – The website features a series of in-depth “client stories,” accented by beautiful, edge-to-edge imagery. These profiles illustrate the caliber of client that the firm regularly serves, and they describe the type of close, collaborative relationship that the firm has developed with each client.
  • Integrated Logo Database – The website is equipped with a database for uploading client logos. Once they are in the system, these logos can be used in various applications throughout the site, while maintaining a uniform look. This adds a nimble, visual means for the firm to talk about its clients. At present, 190 logos are being used on bios and service pages.
