Who We Are

From its foundations to its aspirations, your organization has a story to tell:

The challenges, the rewards, and the impact.

We Celebrate Those Stories
816 New York is committed to greatness, pride of expression, flexibility in movement and adaptation, liberation from tradition and conformity.

From the first strategy session to launch of brand and identity, we beckon you to join us on an unconventional journey that starts from limitlessness, an expansive space where failure and fear cannot thrive.

Whether we’re re-envisioning identity for a staid brick-and-mortar in a small town or imagining possibility for a giddy startup in the big city, we identify and expand the space between logic and creativity—only from there can greatness emerge.

By emboldening you and your team, propelling an intention of success, and creating an impactful brand led by your ideals, we implement strategy to elevate greatness. 

Born in January 2009 as a graphic and web design freelance endeavor in a small town in Connecticut, the agency now thrives as a full-service strategic branding and marketing consultancy in Queens, New York. We have guided small to mid-sized businesses and non-profits across the United States, and specialize in the following industries: foundations & non-profits, health & fitness, housing authorities & real estate, restaurants, and technology.
