Founder, President & Chief 9’er: Carmen Yazejian
Carmen is a lifelong New Yorker whose Gramercy Park studio puts her on set in one of the most-filmed areas of New York. She is a hopeless romantic who admittedly falls in love with each project and every brand she works on. She works directly with every client to determine their strategy, design direction, then puts together and manages every project team and oversees development.
She knows what it’s like on the other side of the conference table. In the 80’s, Carmen co-founded and ran two companies. The first was Harrow Clothiers, a line of English Old Boy school blazers that earned a place in the coveted windows of Saks Fifth Avenue. The second was Pirelli Bags, rubber artist portfolios that rocked the art supply market and are still seen on the streets today.
Carmen has always been fascinated by the magical relationship between design and functionality. That duality drives her to push the limits of every project. Anyone who knows her knows she is a fan of The Boss… so Bruce, if you are reading this, let’s have dinner! Her key to success is a job well done—whether that means growing the perfect tomato or taking a website live.

Creative: Marie Havens, Photographer
Marie Lives behind a lens. She photographs celebrities and fashion icons but the rest of us too. She captures the moment and the people in a way that makes us feel we were there. Her work for our corporate clients makes their websites come alive and connect with their virtual audience. She is a joy to work with, and as one of our clients said.. “a real class act.”
