Carrot Creative

This site of the week comes straight from Brooklyn. Carrot Creative is a top New York agency owned by Vice Media. They’ve been named one of the best places to work in all of New York several times. This is not surprising considering their client list includes everyone from Ferrari and Rolex over H&M and Subway, and they actually bought their own pizzaria to keep their developers happy.

Here at Netlify, our biggest reason for being fans is the effort Carrot makes to push the JAMstack forward. Not only have they made a lot of great CDN based sites, but they’ve even created their own open source tooling including the site generator Roots!

www.carrot.is is cool and lightning fast! We invite you to check it out and see what they had to say about their site and about working with Netlify.

A few words with Jeff from Carrot Creative...

Could you tell us a little bit about your project?
Netlify
The site for our company was a big project for sure. We really wanted to build it as a static site to show off the hard work we have done on static build tools, and for the speed and low hosting costs. Features like deploy preview, forms, and webhooks make everything much better for us!
Jeff Escalante Environment Developer
Why did you choose Netlify?
Netlify
We have worked closely with the Netlify team since the very beginning. They have consistently gone above and beyond with regard to features and support, and they are unmatched in the realm of static hosting. Choosing Netlify for us was a no-brainer for carrot.is.
Jeff Escalante Environment Developer
What is your favorite thing about Netlify?
Netlify
Everything! Naming one thing would be too hard. The webhooks are massively important for us. The CDN integration is fantastic. The continuous integration with github is incredibly useful. And of course, netlify’s support is world class.
