Cake & Arrow is a boutique agency on a sunny, open floor in the heart of the Flatiron and twice over a Best Place to Work, from Crain’s New York and AdAge. Our work is grounded in deep research and user insights, and we pride ourselves on being a UX-led shop that’s people-centric, living and breathing the total human experience to create digital work that engages every user (including ourselves). With a heavy developer influence, we’re live prototyping and proof-of-concepting whatever goes out the door.

We run a dog-friendly office and we all have lives. We think the two things that matter most are the work and the people who do it. We believe in Summer Fridays and yoga breaks. We close shop for a week in July and December. And we take Halloween very, very seriously.
