Westchester-based digital design agency specializing in branding, graphic design, and website development, Play Nice Together (PNT), celebrates its fifth anniversary this year.
Founder Ryan Smith says, “Through my previous corporate experience, I saw the amazing ways technology, design, and marketing were being put to use in large-scale projects for multinational companies and wanted to bring that same type of experience to the small business community.”
Smith holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer & Information Science from SUNY Polytechnic Institute. A technologist from a young age, his interest in computers started in middle school and he coded his first website while in high school. After graduating college, he served as Director of Technology for Money.Net and Senior Director, Technology Operations for Possible, both based in Manhattan.
Creative Lead, Rick Waters, with a degree in Communications, and a successful clothing company under his belt balances out Smith’s tech-heavy thinking with creative flair. His passion for design is especially evident in the unique client logos, websites, and promotional materials he produces. Waters gathers ideas from the world around him. “It’s not uncommon for me to come up with an idea in the most random of places — riding my bike, out in the woods, or on the subway. It seems whenever I let my mind run loose, it always brings me back something magnificent.”
The company name, Play Nice Together, has a dual meaning. Internally, it speaks to the complementary nature of PNT’s design and technology teams. They work cooperatively to create beautiful, functional concepts for their clients. Externally, PNT helps companies build their brands through creative digital experiences that function elegantly across multiple platforms and touchpoints. They believe it is this consistency that truly makes a brand unique and recognizable in the marketplace.
