about us

Ten years ago, an outrageously talented waddling of ducks was sent to an advertising agency to work on some tedious, mundane and downright destructive campaigns.

These ducks promptly escaped from the humdrum corporate world to the intoxicating online and freelance underground.

Today, still wanted by the mainstream advertising industry, they survive as animators and marketers of fortune.

If you want to create something different, if you need some quacking good content, and if you can find them… maybe you can hire… The Duck Team!
