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.
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 Strabone
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 Cox
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 Kiem
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 “roadtrips,” 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.
With nearly 20 years of experience in the (pre)digital field, Mark has made a career out of delivering complex projects on time, on budget, and in scope. Passionate about thoughtful process, he enjoys making people’s lives easier through smart resourcing, balancing priorities, and transparent communication.
Mark started his professional life as a programmer, so he has the unique ability to understand what the client requirements are and translate that to “tech” so the development staff understand exactly what needs to happen. Mark is as comfortable in the C-Suite as he is in the development trenches reviewing code, so he quickly gains the trust of the multi-functional teams he leads.
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.
Where would we be as an agency without the guidance of our trusty Account Manager, Mike Ramirez? We’ve been thrilled to have Mike and his managerial skills on our team, guiding your projects and providing his strategic input when we need it most.
Born and raised in Queens, NY, Mike studied at Hofstra University and earned his degree from Nassau Community College. Prior to joining us at e9, he worked on the New York Rising program with various construction management companies, helping families affected by Hurricane Sandy get their lives and their homes back.
Mike has since lived and (probably) skated across four of the five boroughs of New York. When he’s not wrangling the masses at e9, he finds joy in skating (something he’s done since he was eight years old), and creative writing. Focusing on short stories and poetry, Mike loves the creative outlet that writing brings. We can’t promise anything, but we’re really looking forward to Mike’s first novel about a dashing Account Manager by day and professional skater by night.
