New Yorkers aren’t known for their modesty. But the truth is, e9digital builds better websites, and our clients really like us.
Perhaps it’s because we’re pretty easy going, but maybe more importantly, we actually listen and get that this is about you.
As a seasoned NYC digital agency based in Midtown Manhattan, we operate in that exciting space where design, branding, technology and marketing intersect.
We design beautiful websites with compelling copy; flawlessly programmed; with innovative marketing hooks that drive traffic and convert visitors into customers.
If that sounds like something you want for yourself, it’s time we talked at 800-582-4006.
After seeing proposals from a couple of other agencies, I hired e9digital to transform our company’s old http website into a WordPress site that looks up-to-date and is easy for us to edit ourselves. In making my selection, I found Conrad Strabone to be flexible and understanding about our needs and our budget, and once the project got underway, I was extremely impressed by the attentive and professional service we received from his team. I have had only positive interactions with e9digital and am very happy with our new site!
Conrad and his team are immensely professional, easy to work with, talented, quick and efficient, the list goes on. Don’t think twice about hiring them for your website needs!
The e9 team is amazing. From beginning to end the service was high-quality and professional. And because of this I highly recommend e9! Throughout the whole process, my project was handled with care and I could sense that Conrad, Steve, and Jordan were invested in my success. I truly appreciate them. From designing my logo to clarifying my copy, e9 did an amazing job for my podcast website.
Conrad: Thank you for your team’s excellent and fast turnaround on the Farmers & Cooks website. Just as you expressed, I too am proud of it. I look forward to years of further development of the content and hope with your continuing support that it draws lots of attention.
This is my first ever review. Conrad and his team at e9digital have been, and continue to be, exceptional. Having never designed a website, I did not know what to expect. The most appropriate description I can offer is that I feel like a client and not a customer. Whenever I was confused about the direction of the project, the scope of the work, or even the terminology, Conrad and his team were patient in helping ensure that I was comfortable with the process and pleased with the product. I fully endorse e9digital for those businesses seeking a terrific web design experience.
I can’t tell you how on the mark you and your team was on the implementation of the design of the site and what I was looking for. Your attention to detail was very impressive.
I truly thank you for all your effort. You did a great job understanding our vision and created something exceptional.
Stonybrook Capital had a great experience and it seems like you understood my pain in entrepreneurship. Your team is commercial, practical, and extremely effective at moving the ball forward. You take ownership and responsibility, and I really like the personalized service. All in all – we had a great experience and I would recommend you to anyone – and in fact – already have!
I wanted to let you know the absolutely phenomenal reaction we have received from the launch of the website… We received over 100 compliments on the style, fluidity, amazing navigation features, pagination and stunning beauty of our site. We are so grateful for the beautiful design and how easy the process and collaboration has been with your firm. On behalf of the Legacy team, thank you so much for helping us achieve the masterpiece our website turned out to be.
I highly recommend e9digital for web development. Throughout the process of building our company website, they demonstrated their expertise, sophisticated design aesthetic and superb project management. Importantly, the e9digital team listens to their customers and then provides valuable solutions that have impacted the way we approach our business. Look forward to engaging them again and recommended e9digital to others.
For the second time e9digital has created a website for a new brand that we are launching. Not only are we totally satisfied with the results, working with Conrad and his team is always a great process. They are professional, responsive and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this firm for website needs.
e9 digital was incredibly patient and caring while they designed, edited, enhanced and launched my website. My enormous portfolio made it a daunting task for me to organize and present at it’s best, but they were compassionate and professional. Thank you Conrad, Jina, Colleen and the rest of the team.
My website looks great. Thank you for the hard work and the fabulous results. This stuff is totally outside of my wheel house and you made it easy for me. Absolute professionals. I’m excited to have potential clients go to it and I know it will bring me more business.
First class operation from start to finish. Very talented team, with exceptional organization, design, and communication skills. Highly recommend e9digital for any new web site development project.
We are very happy with what e9 has designed and produced for us. Kudos to your team for creativity, reactivity and flexibility!
We love our new web site, which is not only beautiful, but functions optimally! Thanks so much, e9, for all your hard work, dedication, creativity, thoughtfulness, flexibility, and professionalism on this project – from branding to the new site, you really partnered with us to manifest our intentions… you were great to work with, and really delivered! Would highly recommend.
Just a quick note to tell you how much we appreciate your help on our project. You guys are clear, specific, and wicked smart, and it doesn’t hurt that you’re fun to work with. I had to pass along the accolades and thanks!
Jina is an amazingly innovative art director at e9digital. She brings together fresh thinking and envelope-pushing creativity. She and e9digital revitalized our website with a new approach to user experience and we were thrilled with the results!
We had never done a ground-up marketing project before and there was a lot of hand holding involved. e9’s team was incredibly patient. We’re a niche industry and you really have to understand our business. I was impressed by the research the team did and how quickly they picked things up.
I have hired Conrad and e9digital on two separate projects and look forward to working with him again. Their work has been top notch, and their prices reasonable considering the quality they delivered. I found their creative team willing to listen, so that I got what I wanted even though I never could have come up with it myself. My business runs on their technology and I never worry about it.
I used e9digital to streamline our BNI Chapter intake and information dissemination. Conrad was able to understand the process flow and quickly architect a seamless solution. The software solution is amazing and has reduced my workload by 85%. The best part is that they are partners and continue to update and tweak when we expand scope or find new opportunities to automate manual processes. I highly recommend the e9digital team.
We worked with e9digital to re-create our website with an entirely new look, mobile-friendly (finally!), and with the right messaging, imagery, and site structure. We had a great discovery-session with the e9 team so we could convey what we wanted….and a couple weeks later, after just that 1 discovery session, they NAILED what we were looking for on the first try like a laser. On-time, on-budget, and most importantly….on coolness. I’d recommend e9digital to anyone I knew.
e9digital helped us focus our brand and presence in both the digital and physical world. They were flexible, responsive, and professional. I was very happy with their service and the outcome. Highly recommended.
Love these guys!!! I shopped many companies when looking to create our next generation website. The professionalism, communication, follow through, and eventual publishing of the site was as smooth as it comes. Our web presence and revenue have increased dramatically by working with e9. This is a must use company.
Conrad Strabone is passionate about his work and a business expert. He will guide you from beginning to end with more information than you’ll ever need. He is very professional! Jina, our designer, is very creative. She will work to understand you and your business; think about it and then discuss it with you again from different angles. To sum it up, we love working with Conrad and the e9digital team.
e9digital is an incredible partner. They create stunning, high functioning, lead generating machines that businesses should not live without. From the moment our partnership began, I knew I had chosen the right firm. Conrad and Jina are intelligent, trustworthy and insightful listeners who compile the information you give them to create a website full of sleek design, marketing tactics, and one that is highly differentiated from the competition. Not only is their work great, but they are fun and easy to work with, too. I highly recommend them.
e9 is a skilled team who’s flexibility allowed us to customize our CMS platform to fit our unique needs. It’s great to work with such an experienced team who was able to bring our vision to life.
We found that e9digital had the right mix of smart strategy and creative flexibility. Conrad really listened to what our needs were, and presented a proposal that was 100% spot-on. He also made the tech very easy for us to understand. Jina is very talented, and easy to work with. We absolutely love the site she designed for us.
e9digital was a one stop shop for me. Implementing a website was something that I needed to do, but getting started was a burden. However, Conrad’s keen mind and Jina’s design insight made the process go smoothly. Most important, they were able to craft a brand for my company that exceeded my expectations. Finally, if you’re looking for a partner that truly cares about your business and its success, I believe e9digital will be that perfect fit.”
e9digital delivered a high-quality product on schedule and on budget. Meetings were well run, and efficient. The work was professional.
I recommend Conrad, Jina and e9digital. We get a lot of compliments about our website. It has a very polished, professional look and I am happily surprised that it actually generates sales leads rather than just being a source of reference material. I was especially happy with the design process. e9digital asked questions about us, our business, our likes and our goals, and that led to a better end product.
I was impressed with our initial meeting. I got a sense that the Creative Team was trying to get to know us as much as possible. That gave me a good comfort level. You’re a company that cares for the project and the company you’re working for.
Our website looks terrific. What a splendid job you guys did. Everyone at Parents in Action is thrilled. Thanks so much for the absolutely phenomenal work. You guys are the most brilliant and talented team in town.
Wow, we (Dorian Orange) are thrilled with our new web site. Everything Conrad promised, and more, when we first met is fully functional. We have an amazing amount of control of what is a very sophisticated web site. Check it out at dorianorange.com. I HIGHLY recommend e9digital.
e9digital did an absolutely excellent job helping us create our new website. They turned work around quickly and at a fair price and the site looks and functions better than we could have hoped for. We would recommend them to any business that’s looking to improve their web presence.
I want to thank you and your team on a job well done. Conrad and Jina were a pleasure to work with and we’re very happy with the end result. I will enthusiastically recommend e9 to anyone interested in digital media.
Let’s just say the pace keeps everyone competitive, and the humans we use to build e9 websites are pretty much at the top of their game.

Conrad had a previous life. Then he found the web.
At a midpoint in his life, Conrad Strabone visited the internet and never looked back.
He became a leading web strategist in New York City’s Silicon Alley, after starting off at Drexel. One success led to others, and he went on to direct projects for massive corporations like Sumitomo Corp. and Lehman Brothers. In outside hours, he played all-star level hockey, where he learned a few things about tenacity and competition.
In 2001, he founded and ran a successful software development company—sold in 2006. Conrad felt a natural inclination toward helping smaller businesses, where he could leverage past successes and make a bigger difference. A year later, e9digital was born.
Conrad’s role is to help businesses grow. He oversees all client relationships and helps identify strategic online marketing needs. This agrees with him.
“I live, eat, and breathe developing websites. I love sitting in my sunlit loft office in New York and watching as our work makes a real-world positive impact on our clients and their businesses,” he says. When he’s not working, he rides bikes in Central Park and plays tennis from time to time.Connect with Conrad
Travis: Not a math geek. That said, he is partial to differential equations, and prefers to think of math as the logic that runs the universe. By pure coincidence, math was one of his majors, along with new media and computer science (and a minor in literature).
Like any non-geek, he revels in improving the elegance of his code. Meticulousness aside, he embodies a departure from the stereotype—exhibiting a bullheaded pragmatism that serves our clients well. (See, coding makes sites work well.)
Travis’ high-profile projects have included enterprise-wide e-commerce applications, and work for an array of non-profits and Fortune 500 companies, among them Comedy Central.
To sum up, he’s a guy that grew up on a farm. “You might say I have a normal farmer’s work ethic, crossed with a tendency toward the obsessive.”Connect with Travis
Jina loved designing. So much so that the Hawaii native migrated to New York City and spiraled up, rising to VP, Creative Director at the New York office of Saatchi & Saatchi.
There, she helped to shape strategies for numerous brands. You may have heard of some of them: Tide, Folgers, American Express, Pepsi, Cheerios…
The problem: Creative Directors at worldwide agencies don’t get time to design.
In 2008, wanting much more hands-on creativity and with an eye on the wide-open, ever-evolving web, Jina followed her passion and co-founded e9digital. Now, she gets to design as much as she wants, while still being able to shape the overarching brand strategies and solutions.
“I actually listen to the client(!) and view everything they do (and don’t) give me. If you do all you can to get inside the client’s head, the solution will take shape.” Jina says. “And if for some reason it doesn’t, I just walk outside and let New York City fuel my imagination.”Connect with Jina
Web designers have a unique set of skills. They have to be highly digital and detail oriented, but also capable of thinking out how to compartmentalize information, so that your company’s story is presented both logically and in a visually compelling way.
Tim was born as one of these people. When he was an infant in Kansas, he made it known that he wanted bolder crib colors. We will skip his happy youth until university, when he went to Fort Hays State in Kansas City and received a BSc, already firmly on the informational design and web track.
After graduation, he worked for Plattform Ad Agency in Lenexa, KS where he worked on digital ad campaigns. We know that at some point he materialized again in New York City, because we hired him.
Now he designs amazing websites for our clients. He knows a massive number of programs that enable this. In his spare time, he enjoys making music, participating in sports and taking “road trips,” having visited 40 of the 50 states. Unfortunately, now that he’s working for us, these trips have come to an end. Our clients like his work too much.
Why does Cheney have two job titles? Because she’s too dang talented for just one. Seriously, though — when she’s not designing, managing, and just generally gracing every one of e9’s projects with her creative genius and steadfast efficiency, you can find her playing multiple instruments, painting, sketching, ripping through novels at breakneck speed, and winning slam poetry competitions. Talk about multi-talented.
If that’s not enough to make it apparent that Cheney devotes her life to creating beautiful things, her background serves as proof. She began pursuing her passion of becoming an architect in high school before, like many voraciously left-brained people, deciding she wasn’t the biggest fan of the math component. She eventually found the perfect fit in graphic design, which she studied at Pittsburgh Technical College.
If you happen to be lucky enough to catch Cheney on the phone, don’t forget to say hello to her cat, Pangur Bán, who spends all of Cheney’s phone calls standing on her lap with her paws around Cheney’s neck, for constant encouragement and moral support.
The pursuit of a degree from Pittsburgh Technical Institute brought our designer Jordan out of the backwoods of Pennsylvania (bet you can‘t pronounce “Dubois” like the locals) and into the complicatedly wonderful world of web design.
His design career started at the age of 14, when he first coded a website and began designing art for local bands’ albums and shirts. He’s upgraded since then, and now spends his days designing and developing websites (after he’s been sufficiently caffeinated, of course).
As a musician, Jordan understands harmony. Lucky for us, that understanding extends beyond his ears to his eyeballs because when it comes to knowing how to find harmony between the creativity and logistics of web design, he just gets it. While he usually prefers the creative freedom of design, he also appreciates the structured nature of coding to tell him when something is wrong, and how he can make it right.
When Jordan isn’t designing for e9, he’ll probably be recording music from one of the many instruments he plays, chillin’ with Chief and Fievel, his cat and rat (yes, from “An American Tail”), or challenging an unsuspecting bystander to pinball. While Jordan admits that his pinball playing skills are not yet at “Wizard” level, we let it slide because what he lacks in pinball skills, he makes up for in web design. And that’s kind of important, we suppose.
Growing up in Pittsburgh, PA (but traveling often), Jason has always had an interest and involvement in the creative community. Whether it be the fine arts, film, design, music, food, or reading/writing, it was inevitable that he would follow that path into the professional world. After studying at La Roche University in a nationally recognized program for Graphic Design & Communication, Jason immediately entered the magazine/publication world. This allowed him to hone his designer skills. Being heavily involved in his community also opened up Jason to a world of artist expression through shows, concerts, movies, tastings, fundraisers, and other events. As he moved into director/leadership positions, Jason found his true calling in terms of management and organization (an art in itself). His industry knowledge only made this transition all the easier.
When Jason isn’t working with his e9digital team and clients, he is often times on the move. Usually to visit his brothers who live across the country—from New England to Denver and San Francisco. Jason also loves to ski on the North American mountain ranges and attend pretty much any music and food festival.
Jesse’s claim to fame before working age (and the internet) was being able to recite pretty much any line from all Mel Brooks films. His foray into the ad biz came working as a Jr. writer for Mr. Mad Man, Jerry Della Femina. He cut his teeth on brands like Speedo and the NY Mets. Jesse eventually spread his creative wings and headed to G2, where he honed his radio (what’s that?) skills on Kraft and Campbell’s soup. He also dabbled in the media promo biz, working on ABC News and GMA. From there, Jesse jumped into yet another ad acronym, QSR (Quick Serve Restaurants) at Saatchi & Saatchi, where he led the creative on Wendy’s—especially on helping to launch the Baconator. At Integer, Jesse had a chance to work on the pharma trifecta: Direct to consumer, direct to physician, and formulary. Then as luck would have it, Jesse shared the same Saatchi world as Jina Kiem, who offered him the role of Creative Director at e9digital.
“For me, working for e9digital is a constantly evolving tapestry of creative opportunities with all sorts of interesting clients. And hey, they like Mel Brooks films too. Life has come full circle.”
