Who is Township?

We don’t just design and engineer thoughtful product experiences and brands…

We’re explorers with a strong home base. Building digital spaces can make some folks feel untethered. Not us. We’re a team of designers, engineers, and brand builders that prioritize care and connection as the basis for exploring ambitious client work. As a trusted partner, Township is the stable foundation you can always return to for the fuel needed to push your efforts forward. Many of our client partners are long-term, multi-year relationships. They cite our ability to technically execute while placing equal emphasis on our working relationship as what makes us who we are.

While our systematic design and engineering know-how are our technical services, it’s the human component of building that we do better than most.

We’re people first, period. Not in concept—in action.

Back in 2014 when we started as a small, bi-coastal team, our aim was to create a place our team and clients could call home from anywhere. We knew that leaning into an environment where high levels of investment in our team are prioritized would result in kind with dedication and strong work. And so we did just that. We’ve focused on making a workplace where employee health and happiness is a priority and non-negotiable standard. This is an ever-evolving effort we've been improving upon for years, and this work will be a constant as we strive to be an industry example in 2023 and beyond.

We plan and load balance so you don’t have to.

We’re not the only group of agency-alumni to create a shop that improves on industry woes. Nonetheless, taking a people-first approach to creating a home base where great product work thrives has felt pioneering at times. A common agency complaint is poor project planning leading to additional underpaid people being put on unrealistic deadlines and everyone, including the work, suffering as a result. At Township, we do the work up front to understand our partners’ goals, ground in realities, add shape to what success looks like, and engage in proper long-term planning to piece it all together. This doesn’t slow down client progress, on the contrary—this strategic forecasting allows for swift movement.

We stack your team with the right collaborators.

The other side of the planning coin is stacking the project with the right people. We’ve done the work on our side, so clients pay a fair price for what they really need, and we pay our team fairly in the process. We focus on pay equity with transparency so folks come into Township understanding where they are at and where they can go across disciplines. This also allows us to hire talent that covers a variety of experiences and skill sets to satisfy multiple client partner needs while also offering room to grow. Our team’s experience cuts across a spectrum of senior designers and engineers as well as juniors we invest in. Our junior folks bring fresh perspectives, a hunger for new challenges, knowledge of new technologies, and unbridled enthusiasm that energizes the whole team.

We are collaborators

We’re accountable do-ers who take pride in the quality of our work.

We haven’t built a bench of contractors, we’ve planned thoughtfully and grown an in-house team that’s dedicated and cares about your work as much as you do. By staffing your work with ours, they get to know your needs and technology in a way that allows us to collaborate and suggest the best path forward for better results overall. We know our team and clients are capable, and we do the work to hold all of us to the quality we know we can achieve together.

Come on over to Township.

The result of our approach is you don’t just get a product agency with us. You get a thoughtful and committed set of partners who run toward complicated things. We peel back the layers on the challenges you don’t want to go at alone and put the effort into figuring out what makes the most sense for you. It’s the little-big ways we support each other that leads to groundbreaking work. We believe in this small-town level of care in our relationships. If this is the type of collaborator you’re looking for, come on over to Township. We can’t wait to get started with you.
