Have a Look at Our Digs
Killer websites only happen when the whole crew pitches in, so Ai's space is set up for easy collaboration and conversation.
Cut a Rug
Oh, we got moves. We got moves like you ain't ever seen.
Nylon Nemo always dreamed of working at a real life, website-making agency in the Big Apple. But when he lands an internship and finally gets his chance, his initiative gets the best of him.
We develop muscles.
It's easy to say working out is important. It’s another to actually fit it into the day. So we make exercise a part of our day at Ai.
Instructor-led, in-office yoga at 2:30.
Meditation sessions, Thursdays, large conference room.
Daily 2-minute plank challenge at 6pm (makes people cry).
Running club on Wednesdays after work.
And there’s special events. Aerial yoga. Boxing. A sponsored month of speed cycling. And a "Pedal For Puppies" fundraiser for Bid-A-Wee over the holidays.
Before They Were Ai'ers
Everybody has a past. But Ai-ers are crazy proud of theirs.
Passion. Fortitude. Initiative. And a love of four-legged animals.
Ai employees get their hands dirty. They never settle. They continuously create and revamp and construct, always trying to improve. They guide their own paths, make their own decisions, and when the work is done, they party like it's 1999.
Last year, Ai mentored inner city youth, raised money for March of Dimes and Meals-On-Wheels, and donated 564 cans of food to Urban Pathways. This year, the sky's the limit.
Around the Office
In this office, inspiration is everywhere.
It's an Ai Friday tradition. After a week of pushing pixels and ripping code, we let our inner myomorpha loose.
Until you've tried Tako, you've never tried Octopus Chips. So yummy! So fine! So yeah!
Halloween, Ai Style
Halloween is one of Ai's favorite holidays. But we find the traditional celebrations kind of boring, so we created our own tradition. It's like Secret Santa, but instead of gifts, we give costumes. Part parade, part circus, part trust fall, and 100% pure joy. Here is how it works:
- Randomly pull an employee name from the list
- Select a costume for them to wear
- Present your costume choice and receive your own (You get what you get and you don't get upset)
- Wear your costume to work and go nuts at Madison Square Park!
The Mayor Jack Award
Every month, one Ai'er wows the rest of us - shepherding great work out the door, attacking a challenge... or simply not drooling on the couch. How do we recognize them? By putting their name on the most illustrious award of them all: the Mayor Jack.
Pigs, Cats & Snakes
How do you create amazing design? Surround yourself with amazing creatures.
AiU (Ai University)
Teaching others is in Ai's DNA. Last year's subjects included Inbox Zero, project management, and design pointers.
Big Joey turns a big 1
For someone just turning 1, Joey's already making a difference at Ai. And his birthday speech? It touched us each in a different way. Joey. All the feels, man.
