At Avenue A | Razorfish, the Internet is not a hobby. Technology is not
something we dabble in. And digital design is not a sideline while we
create print ads or television commercials. We were born digital,
passionate about blending art and science, about defying the edge of
what is possible. We got to be #1 because we believed -- and still do --
in the power of the Web to transform lives, and brands.
