An Authentic NYC Digital Agency

Credible firms are run by individuals who naturally demonstrate a passion for their purpose, believe in better, and lead with their hearts and their acumen. Authenticity isn't something you learn. It emerges from your life’s story.

The Mechanism is an authentic NYC digital design agency. We were founded in 2001 on the principle that success in digital communications would demand tighter connections between all media types. Our mission is to help our clients communicate with authenticity and empathy to their users across all digital channels and media types.

Authenticity is an essential trait for anyone who joins our team at The Mechanism.

Our uniform is individuality. Our mantra is confidence. When an associate from The Mechanism arrives at 10am with a five-o-clock shadow, don’t blame irony or fashion. It’s because they were working on your project for three days straight to meet a deadline.

The Mechanism believes our client's satisfaction creates our success. We are immersed with, fascinated by, and driven toward the limitless possibilities of technology's promise; bound by the glue of experience.
