Great location: We’re in the heart of the village, nudged right in between the West and the East, bookended by Union Square and Washington Square. So no gnarly mid-town. Just brick buildings, trees, movie stars, interesting dogs, healthy food and pretty much every subway line in the city.
Normal hours: We’re not beholden to the vagaries of clients (we are the clients), so you’re not working through Memorial Day, Labor Day, Turkey Day, MLK Day, Saturday and every other day that most people get to take off and enjoy. And for the most part, we’re done by 6.
Highest quality work: We set the bar high since we’re alumni of some of the best agencies in NYC. We only create work that we are proud of. Not all of the work will go in your book, but plenty of it will. The goal is to create award-winning work that rivals any agency.
Variety of projects: Not only will you have the opportunity to work on all sorts of projects, you’ll get to see them through to completion.
Snacks galore (and beers and dogs): ‘Nuff said (except that the snacks are thoughtfully-curated and healthy.)
