Who We Are

The Agency

One North Interactive is an agency dedicated to serving the creative, strategic and technological needs of complex, relationship-based organizations. We create extraordinary interactive experiences that deepen the relationship between professional service firms and their most important audiences.

For more than 15 years, the One North team has launched hundreds of websites and other interactive solutions for its clients, each one a distinctive product of the firm’s business objectives, brand identity and targeted marketing initiatives.
Our experience gives us a unique understanding of how professional firms must differentiate their presence and strengthen their businesses in a crowded and competitive market.

We believe that interactive solutions should be clearly and unequivocally driven by concrete goals – the more ambitious, the better. We partner closely with our clients before, during and after each engagement to ensure that strategy and outcomes remain continuously aligned. Return frequently to learn about new developments, insights and client successes.

The Team

Some of us have years of experience working with legal and professional service firms; others bring fresh creativity from other industries.
All of us are driven by the promise of innovation to produce exceptional results.

The Work

We are lucky to work with 80% of the AmLaw 100 and 40% of the NLJ 250. Our clients' websites are consistently recognized as best-in-class by the WebAwards and most recently won the Legal Marketing Association Your Honor Awards. We are proud of the work we do for our clients and invite you to take a look at some of our most recent launches.

The Showcase



One North views a website’s design, functionality and technology as interlocking, each part informing the others to create a unique and engaging experience.  Each One North client team includes specialists who collaborate with you and each other to create a solution custom-fit to your needs.


Our strategists work with clients to understand both business and user goals. Then they apply user experience best practices and a strong understanding of new technology to create a thoughtful information design. Even after the launch of the site, your strategist will help guide decisions and fine tune website and interactive solutions. Our approach is customized for each client, but can include user experience portfolios, information architecture, content & workflow strategy, usability enhancements and data analysis.


Specifically focused on interactive design, our Creative team knows how to create a compelling and attractive visual expression of your firm. Our experienced artists draw inspiration from a wide range of sources but always aim for interactive designs that extend your firm’s unique identity. Our design process is customized for each client and can include brand development, creative strategy and website design concepts.
