It’s 1999, a new millennium is right around the corner, and some of the brightest Knoodles in advertising have come together around a single idea: stop Y2K.
Once they took care of that, they relaxed and dove deep into a different project. A new kind of ad agency for a new millennium, utilizing integrated campaigns, video content, design, and everything in between. Our ideas create real connections, real Knoodle-to-Knoodle bonds between brand and consumer.
