We are an agile digital group based in a New England barn. We take pride in building apps and sites that are elegant and easy to use.

Our story

Animal57 is a small digital team of agile artists, builders and designers. We know a fancy website will only get you so far. If the needle isn't moving, it's all for naught. Your needs will be first and become before our desire to impress. When your goals are successful - we are sucessful.
