Playground Inc.

a design firm by creatives, innovators, and the spontaneous

Our beginnings

Founded by Avritt Rohwer, we are a private corporation owned collectively by our employees. Our core values are creativity, simplicity, and innovation.

Our portfolio

We offer any and all web design solutions; if you can think of it, we can build it.

What we ask of the community

Our needs are small. All we ask of the community is the space for our office and to supply creative individuals with the drive to create great design. We plan on setting up shop at The Factory on 38 Fulton S. West, using the collaborative space to work with the community and hatch great ideas. Our total finding costs will be $275 per month, or $3,300 for the first year.

What we offer the community

We will bring energy and a mindfulness of great design to Grand Rapids. We will work with local businesses who may need web solutions. We will bring clients from all occupations to create a network of like-minded individuals to promote Grand Rapids and all the city has to offer. Everyone has a design need that we can fulfill, from the owner of the GRAM to the artist just starting out. Web design and the technology business is growing, an investment in Playground Inc. is one that will benefit Grand Rapids and its energetic culture.

Experience is an important factor in choosing our team, but the bottom line is this: if you have a full portfolio full of innovative, creative work, we will hire you.
