Who we are

We exist to foster rewarding connections between brands and people. Helping ignite the boundless potential for our clients brings us joy. We help them thrive in an increasingly complex and global world, building solutions ready for the future and all the change it brings.

One thing you should know about the Ntara agency culture: there’s no pretense here. We have small-town roots, and we draw our inspiration from the grandeur of the mountains surrounding us. It keeps us honest. It keeps us down-to-earth. No-nonsense, no ego – we think that’s an excellent combination. Our clients tend to agree.

Where we’ve been

We’re sure you noticed . . . Ntara is not an English word. It's derived from the Malay word, “antara,” meaning “more than the sum of its parts.” In 1999, Ntara brought together a couple of college professors, savvy business professionals and young creatives to solve business challenges in a 70s-style blue brick building in northeast Tennessee. We’ve developed a mastery of disciplines since the dawn of digital to create a company with art, science and technology blended together. Our product is truly left and right brained.

We said goodbye to the retro digs, but we're still making special things happen and loving it more than ever. Ntara has been the trusted digital agency for a number of big brands like Xerox, UPS, Coleman, and Textron as well as a host of other Fortune 1000 companies. We currently work with a diverse group of companies who trust us to deliver astonishing results and push the boundaries.

Where we work (and play)

We’re intentional with everything we do. It's not by accident that we're based in a region of over half a million people called the "tri-cities" in the northeast corner of Tennessee. We're here because we choose the mountains outside our windows that inspire us and give us room to explore on the weekends. We're here because the people in our region value hard work, commitment, friendliness, and ingenuity.

Johnson City is a lively city with a rejuvenated historic downtown, eclectic festivals, and Appalachian scenery galore. It's home to the music-focused Blue Plum Festival and (great for our digital storytelling inclinations) just a few miles from the International Storytelling Center and Festival each October in Jonesborough. We're here because we're big on family, culture, inspiration, and fun.
