We don't work 24/7, but we work hard. We don't claim to be geniuses or industry leaders, but we work smart.We do interfaces while creating the software & strategy behind them. We don't extend, over promise, or mismanage.
Why? Because we think companies that claim they can do everything actually excel at nothing. That's why we choose to focus on what we know and do it right.
We are extremely picky when it comes to who we work with. This probably seems backward, especially considering we're a shop that sells services. But we believe that our passion breeds great work. Chasing the dollar creates a disconnection from the client, which is the complete opposite of what 9th is attempting to accomplish. Trusting us with your project creates an intimate relationship. We handle your budget with care, ensuring our belief to create what's best for your project aligns 100% with your goals.
Simplicity and experience remain to be our #1 focus. We build products for people, we don't care about being the first to the newest tech hype. We believe in being thoughtful and providing the simplest & the best possible solution for our clients.
We work with smart clients who understand that it's the customer, not org-charts or office politics, that matters most. These clients are hard to find, so when we get them we treat them well.
We are not for everyone
We expect our clients to work with a budget. We often advise some inquiries to use popular website building platforms like Square Space or Weebly over committing to a 9th project. This is due to the consideration of their current stage in regards to achieving their business goals. We like to see others succeed, so we are often honest, we give advice on what we would do. Sometimes using a website building platform over a design firm is just the best current solution for your budget and your business.
We create when we feel the urge. Not attempting to build the next "viral" application, or striving for the glam and tech label of a "Unicorn" (a startup company valued at over $1 billion).
We don't act on every idea, but if one attracts our passion, will, and logical thought. We will strive for it.
This translates into our One Belief of doing what we want. Focused solely on feeding our creativity. Working from a sense of desire instead of obligation. We work happily and remain deeply invested, in anything we place our time & focus into.
