What is Cantilever?
Cantilever works with senior managers who were feeling frustrated because their websites weren’t delivering the results they need. We design, develop, and support websites that get results for clients from local small businesses to IBM and American Express. We are passionate about providing “Digital Hospitality” for users and giving them a reason to come back.
We’re more than a technology company – we’re a hospitality company. We believe that websites are spaces that users enter, not billboards they see from a distance.
We help by overhauling those sites to meet users’ needs better, or by starting fresh with a new site built with our proven three-step process.
Every day, tens of thousands of people visit the sites we’ve built, and we are passionate about providing a great experience for each and every person. We are obsessed with perfecting and popularizing the art of “Digital Hospitality.”
Why Choose CANTILEVER?
We Are Invested
We love our work and are devoted to every project we do. We leave no stone unturned in creating work that both we and our clients are proud of.
We Are Transparent
Our clients have a clear timeline and information about the projects we are working on. Questions? We are always accessible.
We Are Communicators
You will hear from us. We keep you up to date so you never have to wonder if we are all on the same page. AND, we want to hear from you.
We Are A Good Partner
Whether you have an existing team for some part of a project or want us to work with your internal talent, we are happy to fill in where we are needed. As an agency that handles design, development, and strategy, we are always glad to team up with others you may be working us. Because we understand the fields of specialist partners, we are able to easily collaborate.
We Are There For You When Change Happens
We believe that sites and other work we create for clients should not be set in stone. We design with the built-in ability to change and grow – we can respond to user feedback and analytics as well as a change in business goals. We offer a myriad of options to allow you to partner with us for the long haul.
Cantilever believe that the power of technology is harnessed when it is firmly linked to the power of our humanity in concept, design, and practical application. Technology without humanity is not the road we and others we heard from wanted to travel.
In 2011, Cantilever, founded in NYC by Ty Fujimura, became that new road. We now have a global team throughout the US, Europe, and Asia.
We created the space where “Digital Hospitality”, technology meets humanity, serves our clients. We identify and welcome people to your site, your brand, and to the products you produce. All in ways that have unique meaning to them to create and establish authentic and lasting connections.
We have worked with signature clients such as American Express, the International Monetary Fund, Esquire Magazine, IBM, and the Bipartisan Policy Center. Every day, tens of thousands of people visit the sites we’ve built, products we’ve helped to create, and brands we have brought to life.
We are obsessed with continuing to perfect the art of “Digital Hospitality” and bringing it to everything we do. Each member of the Cantilever Team has been chosen for both their level of skill and their commitment to this vision.
At Cantilever, our fundamental belief is that websites are spaces that users enter, not billboards they see from a distance. We empathize with them and obsess over every detail of their experience. We see ourselves as hosts, not broadcasters. We call this philosophy “Digital Hospitality.”
We do this because we think it’s right – because we bear the responsibility of hosting people, and care inherently about what they experience in our domain. But we also do this because it delivers outstanding results for our clients.
