Happy Cog

Happy Cog is a design, development, and digital marketing agency headquartered on Madison Avenue in New York City. Founded in 1999, twenty successful years later we’re currently a hand-picked team of 80+ strategists and thinkers including designers, developers, digital marketers, and project managers.

We are an award-winning agency with vast experience building WordPress websites across a multitude of industries.

Our approach is people first. We collaborate with our clients to identify and understand how the organization’s goals can be aligned with a user’s needs. This allows us to craft solutions that act as functional business and marketing tools to ultimately drive deeper, results-based solutions.

PROVEN SUCCESS
We are committed to a process that creates a lasting product. The web is a medium that can change quickly, and twenty years in this business have taught us a thing or two about creating products that last. We’re proud to claim work that has tolerated changes in taste and technology for greater than ten years — lifetimes, in web terms – and WordPress has proven to be a perfect platform that allows us to achieve this. Although our team has the expertise to build extremely complex and sophisticated solutions, we only take those approaches when absolutely necessary, and always strive to simplify and reduce our custom work. We like to rely on “out of the box” solutions where appropriate, meaning we can keep risk low and the total cost of ownership and maintenance in check.

Our philosophy is that a good development partner can build complexity, but a great partner can reduce complexity without sacrificing functionality or UX. We are proud that Happy Cog is well known as being the latter.

This approach helps us build true partnerships with our clients. From a project kick-off call through a post-launch analysis (and often on to a new iteration) we’re in constant, direct communication.

We’d love to discuss your needs and objectives. Please contact us at stuart@happycog.com.

Big Bite

As a team, we believe passionately in building outstanding digital solutions using WordPress to change the way in which enterprise organizations operate effectively. We strive to consistently deliver cutting edge technology to our clients worldwide, including Amnesty International, NewsCorp, HSBC and Penske Media Company.

With vast experience in building large scale, complex digital solutions on the WordPress platform, as well as innovative apps in React and React Native, our team of industry experts work alongside some of the world’s biggest brands to help them achieve their goals and transform the way they work.

Unlike most agencies, we don’t have a set list of services – we strive to be completely flexible to our client’s needs and treat each project as truly bespoke. We adopt an integrated approach which includes consultancy, design, development and ongoing support and maintenance, offering long term agile solutions that enterprise brands need to succeed.

Accredited by the International Standards Organisation for quality and security

Recognized standards for development, transparency and security, offer reliability and peace of mind while our team embraces the benefits of new WordPress technologies and publishing solutions. We’re certified by the International Standards Organization for not one, but two standards – ISO 27001 and ISO 9001. The two standards are a testament to the dedication we have for improving our processes and the continued quality service we offer our clients, as well as quality assurance and testing for all of our products and processes.

Investing in Gutenberg with Amnesty International

With internal resources being pushed to their limits internally, Amnesty International approached us with a key aim, to simplify digital processes and build a single reusable framework which would allow the movement to meet the increasing demands of publishing numerous websites, microsites and website rebuilds across the globe. The result is a core theme, built with the new WordPress editor, which allows the team to produce stunning websites quickly and efficiently while holding onto a unified brand identity throughout each region. The user-friendly theme allows for various content blocks to be inserted, moved and edited easily from the admin and populated with text, links and images. Accessibility and performance were key to us for this project due to the vast number of people using the theme across the globe, including teams from third world countries.

Having a single reusable framework means the whole Amnesty movement can cut overheads for each new build whilst ensuring brand, user experience and web standards are always consistent. By concentrating our future efforts into a single platform we’ll also be able to push updates and improvements to all sites on the platform. This will allow us to focus our efforts on producing great content and giving our supporters the best possible experience in finding and acting upon the issues that matter to them.
